Post uit Hessdalen is a young contemporary music-theatre company. In cooperation with other performing artists, and as a collective of varying composition, it creates hybrid stage productions in which several artistic disciplines – theatre, video, visual art, circus performance – coalesce to form a new and innovative performing arts idiom. Music and soundscapes play a pivotal part in each of the company’s creations. The basal and direct nature of music on stage (live or not) provides an antipode to the constructed visual language.
Post uit Hessdalen was formed in August 2014 by the filmmaker and circus artist Stijn Grupping and theatremaker Ine Van Baelen. For each individual project, they aim to join up with different artists, in a changing and temporary cooperation. Artists with whom they collaborate – in the past, present or future – include the musicians-composers Frederik Meulyzer, Claron McFadden, Els Mondelaers, Berlinde Deman, Zwerm, Thomas Smetryns, Hannes d’Hoine, Milan Warmoeskerken and Naomi Beeldens; choreographers Ugo Dehaes and Karolien Verlinden and dancer Charlotte Goesaert; scenographers Lucas Van Haesbroeck and Reinout Hiel and photographer Liesbet Grupping.
