Abstract
By exploring Thomas Bellinck’s 'Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo', this paper seeks to demonstrate how Europe’s resort to its past is more than a desperate answer in the absence of a new narrative for the future of Europe. As I will show, this nostalgic reflex is part of a broader phenomenon that is both a response to and a symptom of a temporal crisis, emphasizing our inability to cope with the past and to imagine alternative futures. With Domo as an instrument, and with the insights of Andreas Huyssen, François Hartog and Svetlana Boym as a theoretical framework, I will explore how theatre practices can help to overcome our inability to deal with the recalcitrant past.
Door Thomas Bellinck’s 'Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo' te ontvouwen wil deze bijdrage aantonen dat Europa’s vlucht in diens verleden meer is dan een wanhopig poging, bij de afwezigheid van een nieuw verhaal voor Europa. Zoals ik zal onderzoeken, maakt deze nostalgische reflex deel uit van een groter fenomeen dat zowel het antwoord is op alsook het symptoom is van een temporele crisis waar uit onze onmogelijkheid blijkt om met het verleden om te gaan en deze in te zetten voor de toekomst. Met Domo als instrument en de inzichten van Andreas Huyssen, François Hartog en Svetlana Boym onderzoek ik hoe theater ons toch kan helpen om met dat weerbarstige verleden om te gaan en die temporele crisis te overkomen.
