What happens when two strangers meet each other for the first time on stage? 

In THE COMMON PEOPLE 48 Ghent residents meet for the first time. Not online, but in real life: one on one on stage. This is an intimate person-to-person encounter – in the most literal sense. THE COMMON PEOPLE is a portrait of the city of Ghent that brings together its inhabitants on the stage of CAMPO. A social experiment, workshop and performance in one, in which Jan Martens, with film director Lukas Dhont, intertwines choreography, film and stories from everyday life.
