Zachary Oberzan: The Great Pretender

juni 9 @ 19:00 - 20:35

Zachary Oberzan
The Great Pretender

In the Spring of 2015, a man randomly met a theater technician on a bus in Antwerp. Claiming to be the famous American film/theater maker Zachary Oberzan, the man was soon introduced to the senior staff of deSingel Internationale Kunstcampus, where he promised to create a new work using them as actors and their theater as the location. After a week of rehearsals, the staff grew suspicious, the man was revealed as an imposter, and was arrested by Belgian police for fraud. Renowned Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami read about this minor incident, and deeply intrigued, filmed the trial and re-constructed the events leading up to it. What we discover is the very complex story of a man torn by profound issues of identity, frustration, and artistic creation that spill over into our own lives, as we ourselves struggle with what role each of us are to play in the world. The Great Pretender is Oberzan’s latest filmic performance hybrid, combining a feature film, live theater, and live reconstructions of Elvis Presley concerts.


Amerikanska Zachary Oberzan ifrågasätter i sina uppsättningar gränslandet mellan sin privat- och konstnärsidentitet. I The Great Pretender kombinerar Oberzan videomaterial med teater och musik, resulterande i en tragikomisk berättelse i vilken överraskande paralleller mellan det privata och offentliga dras. Oberzans ”The Great Pretender” är en förvecklingskomedi som lovprisar drömmen att ständigt kunna byta skepnad.


Zachary Oberza liikkuu teoksissaan yksityisen ja julkisen identiteetin rajamailla. Esityksessä "The Great Pretender" Oberzan yhdistää videomateriaalia, teatteria ja musiikkia, rakentaen tragikoomisen tarinan joka juhlistaa jatkuvan muodonmuutoksen halua.
