TOTAL LOSS NO14


TOTAL LOSS NO14


Total loss no14: PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN LABORATORY ABOUT CHANGE AND LOSS

By means of installations, images, texts and actions we tried to find out how we deal with change, loss and destruction. Do we have to combat or deny it, receive it, distort it, accept it, use it, expect it? We tested it in Total Loss no14 with the public. At the end of the experiment we ate together and discussed the test.

Texts, installations and scenes have been tested by Fokka. Bas has done tests with Daniel White for their design project CRASH in which they destroy one thing and make another.

SOUPLAB


SOUPLAB


souplab:YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

You want to brainstorm with a group of people about a certain problem. The souplab offers an alternative to exchanging classic names and functions. At the souplab, the taste of your neighbor at the table is the first thing you learn. What do you like? Do you like spicy or soft? Then you go to work and put together a delicious soup for that table companion. At the table you write the ingredients of your soup on the tablecloth and you come up with a nice name.

The brainstorming that follows is relaxed and productive, but above all equivalent. Because everyone has made soup, it has become a binding factor, a joint experience that outweighs your position as director or gardener.

TOTAL LOSS NO15: PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN LABORATORY ABOUT farewell

During the powerlab - Total Loss we try to find out by means of installations, images, texts and actions how we deal with change, loss and destruction. Do we have to combat or deny it, receive it, distort it, accept it, use it, expect it? We test it in Powerboat’s performance and design laboratory with and for you. At the end of our experiment we all sit down at the table.

Is letting go a liberation? Do we know what we need? Is the value not grossly exaggerated? Fokka Deelen shows her own texts and first sketches of her new project about change processes. She has made installations and scenes to test how they work.

GLASS - PRIVACY


GLASS - PRIVACY


POWERLAb privacy: search for the border secret- public

As with every performance, we have also organized powerlabs for Glass. We have tried things out with the public at various stages in the process.

The theme of privacy was very interesting and very comprehensive. We have looked at physical and mental privacy. And it has resulted in a beautiful performance and an interesting workshop.

DATSJA


DATSJA


DATSJA; AN INTERACTIVE PRESENTATION RELATING TO POWER AND RESPONSIBILITY. POWERBOAT TRANSLATES THE PUBLIC IN A DATSJA IN WHICH EVERYONE HAS FREEDOM AND POWER, BUT WHERE NO ONE CAN EXCEED THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES.

The main motivation for Powerboat to make this performance is the truth, in an interactive theater performance, to ask the audience basic questions about living together, especially because theater has traditionally been the place or social precautions.

The world is on the move, but there is also distrust, fear, dissatisfaction and apathy on a small scale.

Theater performances as Powerboat has developed in recent years are the perfect environment to expose this phenomenon. Right now that the world is more than ever divided into rulers and the powerless, there is a great need to address social issues through artistic means. farthest corners

Idea and text: Bas Kortmann, Jacqueline Sterk and Fokka Deelen, Performance: Julien Knops and Linda van Denderen, Design: Bas Kortmann

AFTER HOURS


AFTER HOURS


Powerlab After hours: collaborate, search together, DO IT TOGETHER

The film After Hours by Martin Scorsese was the starting point of the project in which we tried to make theater in a new way.

We invited all kinds of people to the first meeting; theater makers, actors, designers, filmmakers. together we watched the film and then asked who would like to participate in this project.

Then everyone, in pairs, organized a day or evening. You received 6 workshops / experiences and organized / devised one. One of them took place at the Over het IJ festival.

They were very special evenings / days. The end goal is a performance or installation.
