The play Lamb of God continues to touch. The Committee for Concerned Parents, a conservative group, claims that the Adam and Eve scene, in which two of its citizens in each other’s arms a vrijscène suggest while the children’s choir of the ship, immediately from the representation is deleted. ‘The director is looking for aware of the limits of what can or can’t’, write the initiators of the petition. ‘In fact, this is just porn under the guise of art.”
Director Milo Rau is the do not agree. “I find it difficult to get them to believe, especially because the press and the public this scene as very tender and not provocative describe. Everything is also discussed with the parents of the children and done with their consent.’
Rau suspect that the Committee for Concerned Parents, which incidentally has nothing to do with the parents of the children from Lamb of God, is only based on the sensational news coverage in some media. “If you in addition their background checks, then you will see that it goes to an extreme right-wing catholic group.’
The Committee is indeed not good. On their site, profiling them as the anti-libertarian, and as fighters against the ” explicit early-sexualisation’ of the child. Sex can, according to them, only in a long-term relationship between a man and a woman. Pornography, abortion and homosexuality are taboo. Last year, she and they are still with Sensoa about the Jongerengids, which, according to them to a explicit website referred to. Minister Gatz talked about ‘a new preutsheid’.
This time the cultuurminister not react in the press, although the petition be openly addressed to him. The Committee calls for ‘a clear preventive approach, allowing actors such erotic scenes not in the presence of children could be increased’. As long as there is no change of course comes from NTGent, they ask that their grants be revoked. Gatz, the Committee will personally reply.
NTGent announced prompt new performance dates of Lamb of God at the end of december and a recovery during the Van Eyck year 2020. Milo Rau: ‘I need the people behind this petition to than once to come and watch. Some of them can I perhaps convince others not. That is how it is, when you get a piece for and about the entire city.’
