Founded in 1999 and quickly winning over theatre critics and audiences alike, Abattoir Fermé
is an avant-garde collective that was awarded the 2008 Flemish Culture Prize for its "penetrating and ominous theatre."
From a focus in its early days on productions that dealt with the dark underside of society, developing works inspired by gothicism, taboos, counter-cuture and outsider art, Abattoir Fermé is still working
on new performances
today [some links possibly NSFW] .
Three hours of music from 4 out of 5 of their 'silent pieces', composed by Pepijn Caudron
aka Kreng, was recently made available for streaming
by Norwegian label Miasmah
Works for Abattoir Fermé 2007 - 2011 evokes "a similar mood that Alan R. Splet and David Lynch achieved in 'Eraserhead' or Howard Shore in 'Videodrome'."
