Platonov 2

Tonight the play Platonov by director Luk Perceval premieres in Ghent.

Platonov is Don Juan and Hamlet in one. By his own account, he loves all people, all women. He loves too much and too often, constantly drowning in his own insatiability. Platonov is a teacher who wants to give up teaching, the lead actor who’s had enough of acting, the spouse who’s about to cease functioning, the lover who wants to stop loving,… Despite his refusal, he remains the ideal man to the many women in his life.

Some of my images of the rehearsal process are now online on Luk’s website and will be used as the official press photos.  It was so much fun to watch a piece of text come alive and see some incredible actors search to give their personages the character that fits. I can’t wait to see the end result myself.

Have a wonderful weekend!
