FC Bergman, a young Antwerp company, developed a theatrical language, which apart from being anarchistic and slightly chaotic, is essentially visual and poetic. In their shows the floundering, ever-striving human being has often taken centre stage. In 2012 FC Bergman presented Terminator Trilogie on a barren piece of land in various, spectacular locations in Belgium and the Netherlands, thanks to IN SITU. It is a wordless monologue, a silent spectacle in the open air, set at the first glimmer of the twenty-first century, a century when the options for a happy life are there for the taking.
The headlines in Theaterkrant read: “The theatre of the young wonder boys from Antwerp, FC Bergman, is magnificent. The plain of Terschellinger beach, which stretches almost interminably into the distance, is crucially important. From the grandstand you look out over the beach and see all sorts of things hundreds of metres away: a bench, a trampoline, a piano, a table football table, chairs and so on (…) The show has no script and very little music. The vastness of the space and the silence contribute to the sheer poetic intensity of the cinematic images.“
Terminator Trilogy by FC Bergman (excerpt)
A wordless monologue, a silent spectacle in the open air, at the dawn of the 21st century. A century in which the choices for a happy life are abundant... Terminator Trilogy is the greatest creation yet by one of the latest sensations in Flemish theatre.
