Provisionally named after the green comic-character whose physical powers increase in direct proportion to his anger, in this new show Diederik Peeters will do his utter best to get red with rage. At the peak of intense frustration and violent temper the perception of reality changes drastically, and it's that kind of frustrated rage which serves as a sparking-point for the performance.

Although in Hulk Peeters is on stage with Nada Gambier, this show is surely no duet. Hulk is a real 'ensemble piece' where light, sound, set and even costume impose themselves as equal opponents to the performers. With a known fondness for fooling around with codes of perception, archetypical images and absurd situations, Peeters is excited to turn the hefty meanings and mechanisms linked to uncontrollable frustration upside-down and inside-out.
