The Flemish collective Tibaldus, which consists of three unstoppable actors, have taken the play Yvonne  by the Polish avant-gardist Gombrowicz and soaked it in nitric acid. It didn’t even flinch. Tibaldus is performing this unsettling fairytale about Yvonne, ugly as sin, in collaboration with four other actors. When Prince Flip falls in love with her, he is mocked by his family and the court. But slowly Yvonne gets beneath the skin of the self-satisfied elite. By remaining silent she makes an entire kingdom falter. It leads to such upheaval that only a horrific act can bring peace.
Director Timeau De Keyser  has turned Yvonne, Prinses van Bourgondië (Yvonne, Princess of Burgundy) into a fascinating and gripping play, bursting with laughter, and performed with gusto and imagination.
