Performance

Indoor Weather (avant-premiere)

Members can visit the final rehearsal of this performance for free. Registrations are closed! 

What if the theatre were the belly of a huge whale? Or no, wait – a futuristic, completely unknown ecosystem?

Inspired in part by Moby Dick and Jeff Vandermeer’s eco-science fiction, Ezra Veldhuis and Bosse Provoost call upon the entire technical apparatus of the theatre to stretch your imagination to the fullest. In Indoor Weather, the lighting, sound, and winches are on an equal footing with the human performers. All of these elements are involved in a mysterious game whose rules lie just beyond our comprehension. A greyish green glow suddenly falls upon the stage and then spreads like an oil slick through the theatre; an actor recites passages from it, the monumental cycle of poems by the Danish poet Inger Christensen from 1969; soundscapes swell and recede in the space as if coming from high and low-pressure areas. Who is influencing whom in this constantly mutating environment? What is dependent on what? Is the environment a mainstay or an enemy?
