The Art Piece
“A wonderful, radical confusion without safety net, which, despite its reduced surface, comes out as a wild piece of Performance-Theatre”
“Full of scenes to be grasped with intuition instead of theory. Not everything has to be understood rationally, and definitely not performance.”
Breaking with all possible definitions of how theatre for youngsters is supposed to look, we dove into a world of multiple meanings to bring teenagers close to what we, as artists, think art can look like sometimes.
We created this piece out of a profound wish to remember that art, just like life, is not always mild, colorful, entertaining, or grandly composed. Instead, this piece is - and wants to be - the misfit kid in the classroom. The stranger. The outsider. The one no one "gets." The vulnerable one. The rebel. The flamboyant "weirdo." The one who is comfortable being different and puts a spotlight on themself to remember their own existence.
We created this work to reflect on traditions, to seek beauty in what we normally judge as ugly, to enjoy the strengths of our weaknesses, to look at the brutalities of our own diplomacy and to remind ourselves and audiences that it can be terribly funny to do and see things differently than we usually. This piece will not tell you a clear story; this piece is just there, like a Kafkaesque creature going out for a happy day at the park. Its existence is its own statement'.
