look! there's a machine!

big!
black!
solid!

 

and look over there! something is tumbling down!

small!
white!
wobbly!

 

listen!
there's babbling!

blabbering!

jabbering!

 

things meet! collide!
a clash?
a rendez-vous?

just look at that!

in TATTARЯATTAT!(*) species and individuals stand on, under, between, next, above, before, behind or opposite each other.  a plank meets a beam. a woman smashes into herself. large watches small. abstract chats with itself, or argues with concrete. what’s the sound of blue? what does flat do? how much is firm?

 

TATTARЯATTAT! is a moving expressive work that categorizes, classifies, organizes, but also dances, sings and dreams. a festive discovery of difference and resemblance that can be lived and interpreted  by both parent and child. 

(*) tattarrattat is the longest palindromic word in the oxford english dictionary. james joyce used it ulysses (1922) for a knock on the door: 'i was just beginning to yawn with nerves thinking he was trying to make a fool of me when i knew his tattarrattat at the door.'

"this production surprises young and old, and keeps on doing so by a clean staging. (...) TATTARЯATTAT! is a gem of visual theater of things, in which things - being boards and beams - remain things as such. no metaphorical or symbolical hassle, just an ode to imagination and play." (tuur devens, de theaterkrant.nl) (complete article in dutch)
