We gaan op berenjacht (We go bear hunting), 2008


Scenography for theatre company ‘De Maan’, Mechelen, B

We go bear hunting is a concept of Willem Verheyden; Director: Willem Verheyden; Play: Jits Van Belle; Music: Sioen; Scenography : Nathalie Hunter.

The play is based on a popular song, but then we gave it a different twist.
I created a set of wooden modules through which the children can follow the actress and the play. It is national bear day, and to celebrate this bears stole all the honey from the shops. Marie (the actress) realizes all her honey has been stolen and takes the children to go bear hunting.

They leave the packed shop to go through woods, a desert with a dromedary, soft grass, a big city, a labyrinth and a waterfall. And it all ends with a big pop-up with bears having a party. Videos and colored light complete the immersion in this world.
As they don’t have to sit still, very young children can follow this theatre piece.
