EAST, VILLAGE, VIEW, FRUIT, EXCHANGE!

The East Village View Fruit Exchange was an installation, a décor inspired on a found image of a fruit store in New York. The reconstruction of this shop in wood, cardboard and actual fruits inspired Rowan Van As to come up with several ‘characters’ in his live show such as the Newspaper Boy and the Ultra Orthodox Jew. Rowan Van As played with the well-known chauvinism of the inhabitants of Antwerp, who consider their city at least the same or even bigger than New York. (text by ALAN QUIREYNS)
