The world as representation and the representation of the world.
In 1985, Leporello’s first production “Herz und Schmerz” was created in the Ancienne Belgique, (Brussels). Under the artistic leadership of co-founder and helmsman Dirk Opstaele, Ensemble Leporello has produced some 40 plays - a play-list of more then 2000 venues. Still based in Brussels, the company employs now 30 actors, singers, dancers and/or musicians - for a repertoire of 10 titles.
The REPERTOIRE 2015 is the incarnation of the typical style of Ensemble Leporello. Musicality, rhythm, wordplay, choreography and vocal orchestration are the characters of a text-in-the-large-sens. Independently from trends, and within a broad gamma of themes and texts, Leporello develops a pure form of living art. De physical presence of the actors is the primordial and sovereign vehicle of meaning. On an empty stage, the world is recreated by play.
