Rediscover this Flemish theatre literature gem and take a look at Flanders today. Where people still have to work, integrate and assimilate. Where classes and communities still don't speak each other's language. Where families are torn apart and young and old, rich and poor, face each other with drawn knives over land and religion. Where economic migration is still a necessity. And oppression by the 1% leads to heated struggle: Het gezin Van Paemel in an ever-changing world, then - 1903 - and now.

Over the last 12 years, Valentijn Dhaenens travelled the world for SKaGeN with the success monologues DegrotemonD, DeKleineOorlog and Onbezongen. In DeKleineOorlog Dhaenens duplicates himself on screens and goes into dialogue with his 7 alter egos.

In Het gezin Van Paemel, Dhaenens takes this a step further. In each of the four companies, he plays a different crucial character live. The many antagonists, also played by Dhaenens himself, are digitally present.

For those who still had doubts, Het gezin Van Paemel is not a monologue, but a testimony of creativity and bravado. Throughout this production, Dhaenens battles demons from all of our pasts. He has an intense conversation with his heritage, which is also the heritage of Flanders.
