The Ghentian collective Tibaldus organizes the English try-out for Ivona, Princess of Burgundy. Their latest performance is a thorough staging of the play by the Polish avant-gardist Witold Gombrowicz. The story focuses on the silent and sloppy Ivona. Following a tasteless joke by the Prince, she now risks becoming queen.
Tibaldus is no stranger to the TAZ audience. In 2009 they performed Paard: Een musical, in 2014 Persona, 2013. After TAZ Tibaldus leaves for the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they’ll present Ivona to Europe. This is a unique opportunity to see their English try-out in Ostend!
‘Tibaldus proves with Ivona, Princess of Burgundy that a young theatre ensemble can tackle a fascinating play: theatre created by a collective, pushed forward by the burning desire for storytelling, full of humour, imagination and the utter joy of performing.’ (Etcetera)
