When Willem de Wolf, teaching at a drama school, saw Louis  Janssens enter his class  for the first time, for a moment he thought he saw himself as a student of 35 years ago. He saw the same eagerness, the same ambition, the same uncertainty wrapped in bravura. Even that very lanky figure with suggestive lock of hair hanging casually across the forehead was, with some backlighting, almost Willem.

Conversely, Louis also recognized himself in Willem. As something you could become, even though you might not want to. As supposedly mature, experienced, with uncertainty wrapped in resignation. What do you actually see, when you see yourself in the other? Is recognizing yourself in the other the basis on which and with which you learn?

Analoog is an intergenerational performance that sings and talks about childhood, about mothers and about searching disruptive loves. A score about completed and desired learning processes. About earlier and later but also about how to position yourself as a young - or older - person in the world.

A performance as a large open plain on which, with music, text and images, Willem looks back and forward and Louis looks forward and back. And somewhere in this tangle of gaze directions they look at each other at a certain point, of course.
