  • Only the jester can express critical thoughts to the king without fear. OHNO COOPERATION (Maarten Seghers, Jan Lauwers and Elke Janssens) takes this privilege as a mission in its study of the place of art and the artist in society.

    ‘No one can sustain constant praise of life. Death or, rather, the finiteness of human life deserves a song or a dance too.’

    Jan Lauwers starts out from the performers’ family trees and is writing a new story based on their various nationalities, cultures and languages.
