Josse De Pauw

Last Sunday evening was a real treat, I had the opportunity to see a master at work:  hear Josse De Pauw read from Russian author Venedikt Jerovejev. 
De Pauw is an actor,  an author, a columnist, a film director, a remarkable artist.
And I am a fan!
About a year ago, I was very impressed by the way he portrayed the consul character in Malcolm Lowry's "Under the Volcano" in the beautiful Bourla theater in Antwerp. 
But to see him at work in a smaller setting was kind of special. Even though I was still just a bit too far away to get a great photo, I think this picture shows the concentration of the performer and the strength of his presence on the podium.
