Theater is not an audience prostrating itself at the celebration of mass. Theater is not the dirty little secret that a family tramples underfoot to keep it down. Theater is not a psychoanalytic revelation drawn from the depths of the soul. Theater does not have its center of gravity outside of itself. Theater is not a moment of nostalgia recalling a time gone by in the light of a staged present. Theater is not the emotional argument of a reasonable thesis. Theater is not reproducing something here that was produced over there. Theater is not the hearth that chilled spectactors gather round for warmth. Theater is not theater. Theater is dada. Da.
The performance nietniet invites the audience into a game sequence that experiments with new relationships between body, space, and words. The exploration strives to reimagine the world in a new way.
