look! there's a machine!
and look over there! something is tumbling down!
things meet! collide!
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."
