Episode Summary

"Real-reel" is an experimental theater work of the avant garde Belgian group Theater Laboratoire Vicinal. On this program the work is performed, with commentary by Margaret Croyden. Underlying the experimental nature of this two-man performance is an attempt to present meaning without plot, and to provide a language with little verbal communication. The new Belgian experimental theater group, "Theatre Laboratoire Vicinal," will present excerpts from their play "Real-Reel," on Camera Three. The group, widely acclaimed as one of the foremost innovators of the stage, is historically related to Jerzy Grotowski's Polish Laboratory Theater and to the Living Theater and Open Theater groups. It has toured many of the important European festivals and has appeared in the United States, Iran and Canada. Frederic Flamand and Jean Pol Ferboa will be seen in the excerpts from "Real-Reel." Margaret Croyden, professor of dramatic literature and a frequent contributor to leading Journals on the subject of contemporary theater, will act as the commentator and guide of the broadcast which will show how the group presents theater with meaning but hardly any plot, with language but hardly any verbal communication.moreless
