Bastiaan Vandendriessche immediately put himself on the map as a proficient scriptwriter and performer extraordinaire, who plays a very clever game with the spectator. A stage production in honour of the Sea Scouts, in honour of Leda and Emma, in honour of Nabokov. Vandendriessche produced De Fuut as his Master’s thesis, Cabaret department AP/Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. Every season Zuidpool offers residential space and a stage to scores of young makers and Love at first sight II is an opportunity to present the cream of the projects developed and completed at Zuidpool.

“What I would really like to do
is go to a desert island with Leda and Emma,
or sail away with the sperm whale
we are lying on the deck
in our swimming costumes
and I tell them stories about
the destruction of the world
about the futility of life
we compose 200 songs together
with the best ironic poetry there is
and I would never hurt them
I would just be very kind and they would too
and we would never go to sleep
they would kiss me on my neck
they kiss me on my neck”
