Ensemble Leporello brings together Flemish, Walloon and foreign performing artists. It is a traveling company, with Brussels as its base. Leporello annually provides a repertoire of at least seven titles, in different languages, ranging from classical to contemporary. The theatre productions, with no set, lie somewhere between music, text and dance theatre. They are programmed in Belgian and European theatres and festivals, and often run for many years.
Ensemble Leporello stands for total theatre of flesh and blood, in which rejoinders, scenes and acts are stylised in a musical-rhythmic way, very much like a score. It goes back to the ancient forms of theatre and commedia dell ‘arte.
