David Weber-Krebs - The Actual Event (working title)

maa 29/07/2019 > zon 04/08/2019

“Maybe the real drama is actually that there is not enough drama.”
Bruno Latour

Since the beginning of his career David Weber-Krebs has been putting special attention on the spectators’ active participation in the situation that is proposed. With The Actual Event (working title) he would like to introduce a new level of participation.

A performance where the spectators would be affected by a sort of hyper-awareness. An awareness for all the uncontrollable, non-human agents that are active while they are together in a space: the dust that was resting in the space for years, the air they’ve taken along while entering the space, the waves of different lengths that fly across it, the meeting of bacteria...

The performance oscillates between speculative strategies (letting people imagine how things could be) and material awareness (make them aware of what is actually happening in the space) and is part of an ongoing research on how to bring urgent ecological issues at the core of the theatre experience.
