Light parade; one day a penguin is standing in front of a boy's door. whose penguin is this? where should he go
This light parade is based on the children's book "Lost and Found" by Oliver Jeffers. Do you want us to organize a light parade in your neighborhood? Send us a message.
When a boy receives a visit from a penguin, he thinks the animal is lost and wants to take him back home. But where do penguins actually live? Together with the residents of Oosterflank we went with our lanterns in the evening, looking for the house of the penguin. But was the penguin really lost or was he actually looking for a friend?
play it forward; a performance to conclude the mygeneration @ work congress. the theme of the congress was the reduction of youth unemployment in europe. how do you deal with the changing role as an employee / employer? who and what needs to change?
Commissioned by the municipality of Rotterdam, we made a show for the conclusion of the MyGeneration @ work project in which the theme and the results have been processed so far. With the aim of making the material tangible, concrete.
In the setting of "The Factory of Good Ideas" all participants could feel the bottlenecks of our current system of director / manager / worker. After this experience, all results were discussed and the basis was laid for the follow-up process.
Everyone was very enthusiastic! They were especially pleased that the emotion behind the theory came up and could come along in a practical way within two hours. View photos of Erno Wientjes here and tweets of the participants via: The factory of Great Ideas.

glass; We are made of glass: so clear, transparent and fragile.
CITY STAGE is an intervention project that ran parallel to the performance. Young people, from ± 14 to 18 years old, received a workshop on physical privacy. During the workshop, they made a brief intervention in the public space that explored the boundaries of privacy. They had to see the camera as a security camera. The intervention / action had to be aimed at the guard viewing the images from the surveillance camera. Stimulate him, provoke him, pass on a message, etc ..

GLASS is a performance about the privacy of secrets, thoughts and dreams. Our body is constantly monitored, monitored and analyzed. That privacy no longer exists. We still had the privacy of our brains. The latter limit is exceeded by new technology from the E-Vitro company that makes it possible to scan the visual cortex and extract the images from it.
E-Vitro produces a revolutionary, portable brain scanner. This device is demonstrated in the show while the audience is participating in a brainwave experiment. With this you can make memories and dreams visible. Through this scanner you come in contact with yourself. You communicate with others via the headset and you discover what they dream and want. E-Vitro offers you a world without secrets.
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

POLDERTANGO; WHAT BINDING DO YOU HAVE BOTH LITERLY AND FIGURALLY WITH THE COUNTRY ON WHICH YOU STAND, LIE, ROLL, RELEASE, EAT, LIVE?
Poldertango is about the passion for the flat wet land. What connection do you have with the country where you live? If foreigners come, are you proud of your country and do you want to share it with everyone? Or do you feel insecure?
You can only love someone else if you love yourself. do you only know who the other person is, if you know yourself? Poldertango is an experiential search for a shared identity with the country and the other.

Do you have a question or would you like more information? Send us a message.
RUIS; noise is everywhere. sound, image, people. SHOULD IT BE MINIMIZED OR Nurtured? THE BEAUTY OF INFULFULNESS.
Do you want more information about Ruis or do you have another question? Then send a message.
In the Rotterdam performances you could, in addition to dining, also get a combi ticket for the CODE_DECODE show by Blekdog. A dance performance about expectations that every person must meet. The dancers were driven by a sound source that was mounted on the belly.
RUIS is more than a performance. It is an evening where people walk around, surrounded by images and sound and where all the senses are stimulated. A mix of theater, design, music and new media.
We wanted to show the beauty of noise in the show, the dinner in advance and the exhibition in the foyer. Making it feel that noise is not a jammer but a necessary element to bring movement, wonder and energy. That it frees you from the beaten track and gives you room to discover new things.

raising reality; What do you do if you are confronted with a stranger?
Raising Reality is the story of a woman who deliberately pursues her own destruction. We asked the public the question: do you accept this choice of the women and what is your role in this? In this theatrical performance, the end result is partly determined by the spectators.
