In 'The Opened Body. Collected essays on Jan Fabre' Luk Van den Dries  collected the texts he wrote on the theater work of Jan Fabre from 1982 to 2014. He commented on Fabre's theater work from very different perspectives: as a critic trying to capture the autonomy and identity of the work, an academic who attempts to put the work in an international context and analyze the various layers and as an occasional dramaturg of the company Troubleyn who collaborates in the long and intensive process of creation. 

The texts are organized into larger units. The first part brings together all the essays on his work, each of which highlights very different aspects of the multifaceted oeuvre. The second part is organized chronologically and largely follows the theater career of Jan Fabre, each time zooming in on individual creations. The final part consists of the conversations with Fabre between 2003 and 2014.
