In the much-talked about Taboo, that in the spring of 2018 was One, laughs Philippe Geubels with people where you actually are not allowed to laugh. But he does, of course, not without extensive preliminary study.

Under the motto “you learn each other it is best to know on vacation”, invites Philippe each week for four guests in his permanent holiday home in Westouter: people with an incurable illness, people with physical disabilities, blind and partially-sighted people, people with obesity, people living in poverty, lesbian, gay, bisexual, people of color, and people with a psychological vulnerability. He listens to their stories and sensitivities, to explore together with them the area and teaching them to especially really good to know.

It doesn’t stop there: also, humour is an important part of Taboo. So challenges Philippe guests to use during their holiday week itself the street with a hidden camera, what to very funny situations. He also brings a comedy set about the conscious theme with his new friends prominently on the first row of a room full of peers.

Taboo is a production of Panenka, directed by Cat Steppe.
