The Emancipation of O.O.O. by J&K
J&K present us with object theatre. The scenography consists of sculptural objects, lights and loudspeakers, all of them animated. Objects revolt, refuse to be part of the human reign. They also share their memories with us. J&K break down barriers between living and non-living forms: things have a life, nature has a consciousness.
 
The Dance by Kristian Byskov
In The Dance Kristian Byskov attempts the perhaps impossible task of knowing the mind of another species. The octopus’ body, sensibility and life is distinctly different from Kristian’s. A pulsating light and a hanging organ set the scene in The Dance, a play performed as a dialogue between Kristian and another voice that can be described as Kristian’s cyborg identity. The hopeful aim of the play is the transgression of the boundaries between two organisms whilst taking a closer look at their dreams and deaths.
