[June 30 > Talk with the performers]

This performance piece is the second project on which we work together as a company. The creation of the piece is mainly based on the act of CARRYING and RELOCATION, or rather the idea of claiming/invading TERRITORIES. What do we carry within us when we relocate ourselves in space? How do we establish our own new territory? As territories are being outlined through the “space”, the belongingness fades and the boundaries tremble when intermission, interruption and invasion start to create conflict, contradictions and tensions between the two creatures. Through this project, we intend to explore the idea of ourselves being storage containers. Using spherical costumes, we will introduce two creatures on stage – reminiscent of mythological creatures like Atlas, spaceships, planets or even some sort of animals like turtles or snails, which always carry their homes with/on them. But what do these creatures have to reveal on stage? ‘’THE OBJECTS AS THE KEEPERS’’. By setting an unexpected and absurd environment, we will play between the realm of theatre, reality and magic, not really knowing if it is theatre or if it is magic. We would say: always both.
