Mechelsches Märchen
Film shown in Mechelen, 20 – 21/06/09

Mechelsches Märchen is not a tale about Mechelen. It is the catch of a fisherman who has caught something in his net - what, exactly, the fisherman does not really know himself, since he can neither read the images nor interpret them. He is merely the spectator of a game in which he himself is caught up, but which he nonetheless seems to enjoy. One could call it a hostage-taking of fragments, for a performance which has its own twist.
