This paper seeks to bring out the distinctive qualities of the Flemish artist’s aesthetic through the analysis of Isabella’s Room: a performance which experiments in constantly varying and radical ways with the relations between stage and audience, the relations between the visual arts, dance, drama, written and acted word, live song and music. Through the narration of the stories woven into the performance, the paper illustrates and analyses the particular stage design, the contribution of music and the chorus, and the verbal element. Above all it brings out the significance of the paratactic arrangement of the elements and the presence of multiple “centres of energy”. The search for an ever-changing relation subtends the idea dear to Lauwers of performance as “presentation, not a representation” by the performer as an active, thinking presence, a true artist. The message of a final hope, the ethical response that the beauty of art can give to the falsehoods of life and history, the collective experience that the performance produces, make it this artist’s work even more intense.
