Bart Chabot started his career as a performing poet. 'Can you deliver on stage?' was more important than publishing. Through the years, poetry and performance gradually grew apart. Inspired by the tension between these two sides of Chabot's personality, Jeroen S. Rozendaal, Roel van Tour and Pim van Alten created the dramatized documentary 'Interzone' in which the protagonist gets trapped in Chabot's poems in a hotel room on tour.
While filming, Chabot fell ill with serious consequences. Therefore, the film marks the end of an era in which Bart Chabot presented himself as performing poet and all-round TV personality.
