An eclectic kaleidoscope of different colors and themes, a true descent into the heart of humanity.

“Breathtaking! This work is a descent into the heart of humanity.” Le Figaro

Perhaps all the dragons…, a masterpiece by the Belgian duo BERLIN, presents thirty dispersed stories collected by Bart Baele and Yves Degryse, the founders of the company. Thirty screens are mounted on the perimeter of an impressive oval structure, each screen displays a filmed monologue: a famous pianist, while on stage, realizes that she has prepared for the wrong concert; a neurosurgeon exchanges the heads and bodies of two monkeys which survive the surgery… an eclectic kaleidoscope of colors and personalities.

A project by Triennale Teatro dell’Arte and Zona K


The work of the Belgian collective BERLIN is characterized by an approach on the cusp of documentary and interdisciplinarity: after focusing on a specific research topic different paths are set in motion each time using different media. This kind of process has given birth to two project cycles: Holocene (the current geological era), each part of which starts in a city or village somewhere on the globe, and Horror Vacui (fear of emptiness) in which remarkable, true stories are unveiled. The first five projects within the Holocene cycle are Jerusalem, Iqaluit, Bonanza, Moscowand, and Zvizdal. So far, Horror Vacui consists of Tagfish, Land’s End, Perhaps All The Dragons…, and Remember The Dragons…(the debut of the fourth project True Copy is scheduled for autumn 2018). Holocene will end in Berlin with the creation of a docu-fiction project which will involve the inhabitants of the cities included in the previous episodes. These last few years BERLIN have been invited to major international festivals and have toured in 28 different countries presenting their work in various circuits including theatres, exhibition spaces, festivals and public spaces.
