Oceanus

A new ritual

Rituals resemble stones; they are imperturbable, unalterable and self-contained. Rituals are the exact opposite of human indefiniteness. Rituals release the participants from their daily questions and insecurities. Rituals can tame emotions without suppressing them. Rituals clasp the individual in the firm grip of the group. Rituals communicate that which nobody is able to express or understand. Rituals assuage the desire for meaning through their perfect form. Rituals give the person something to hold on to as compensation for his/her lack of ‘completeness’.

PAPERWORK

A theatrical paper installation inspired by Franz Kafka

The phone is ringing non-stop. Letters are piling up. Files are untraceable... How can you achieve something if you don't know what the purpose is? In Paperwork BetweenTwoHands builds a paper refuge for Franz Kafka: the office clerk who wrote masterpieces to escape his oppressing reality at night. Kafka’s world of thoughts between court letter and fantastic masterpiece are transformed in paper objects. With one single fold, a world can appear, or disappear.

DUODENUM

A miniature laboratory

A miniature object theatre in which poetic experiments are conducted. Duodenum is about the diversity of the feasibility of society.

The viewer is witness of a series of strange experiments conducted by a doll in a laboratory.

THE  JOURNAL

A miniature object theatre

In a setting of 40 by 30 centimetres in which objects predominate, we see the musings of a lonely man. Inspired by A Thief’s Journal, a novel by Jean Genet about the dark side of existence, Erin Tjin A Ton and Gosia Kaczmarek took the loneliness of the protagonist and used it as guide line for The Journal.

Design and performance: Erin Tjin A Ton & Gosia Kaczmarek
