Flemish director Guy Cassiers makes his american debut with Sunken Red-a multimedia theater work created in collaboration with and performed by one of Flanders' leading stage actors, Dirk Roofthooft. This U.S. premiere also marks the U.S. debuts of two of The Netherlands' most vital contemporary theater companies-Toneelhius and ro theater. This solo performance is based on Jeroen Brouwers' 1981 autobiographical novel, Bezonken Rood, an account of his family's internment in a Japanese prison camp during World War II. In 1943, the three-year-old Brouwers-along with his sister, mother, and grandmother-was imprisoned in the women's camp, Tjideng, in present-day Jakarta. The author describes how his years in the camp permanently destroyed his relationship with his mother, comparing the loss of maternal affection with the disintegration of each subsequent love affair in adulthood. On a set designed to evoke a formal Japanese garden and framed by multiple live-feed video projections and laser-like lighting design, Cassiers stages Brouwers' devastating story and creates an emotionally intense piece that is a magnificent expression of love from a wounded man
