Jan Lawrens’ theatrical journey has been marked by constant reflection on performance since the beginning of his carrier in Belgium in the late seventies. Starting from the well- known spectacle Isabella’s Room (2004) we can identify the core elements that mark his current thinking on performance and theatre. The paper highlights the tension towards narrative, but with reference to the influence of the visual arts, brings up the concept of the “border image”, a key expression to understanding the genesis of the spectacle. The aspiration to a theatre that is “the most human possible” results in a strongly political art focused on the life of the polis as a community of human beings. The first scene in particular brings out the idea of the actor supported by Lawrens and his striving to overcome the crisis of performance observed by some authoritative scholars.
