Images of Affection is a play created on the occasion of Needcompany's 15th anniversary. In this production, Jan Lauwers, more than in any previous piece, removes all boundaries and continues to examine his ambiguous relationship with theatre. Images of Affection does not look you straight in the eyes. The performance is like a stunningly beautiful woman with a slight squint.
