Nathan Ooms - Into A Walk Into Nature (working title)

maa 26/11/2018 > zon 02/12/2018

As long as we perceive Nature as a Theatre, with it’s Characters (the birds) and Sceneries (the trees, the oceans), and ourselves (humans) as Spectators, we will not manage to develop a truly ecological understanding and coexistence. This thought is the starting point of ‘Into A Walk Into Nature’ (working title) of a performance by and with Anna Franziska Jäger and Nathan Ooms, both master students at the Drama department of KASK School of Arts Ghent. How can the theatrical experience, in it’s most classical sense, with the spectator surrounded by darkness and the stage as fixed point of focus, inform us on the gaze by which we define Nature? And can we then create other frameworks of perception that would allow us to be with, instead of be in, Nature?
