Masters of ceremony: five wooden triangles, a juggler, and a drummer

This is a concert that progresses into a thrilling choreography of a set of objects, a juggling artist and a musician. But who is directing who? Who needs who? Or is it a dance between three equal partners?

Each triangle comes to life with a unique personality. But the rowdier the triangles become, the more challenging it is for the juggler to keep them all up in the air. It takes enormous dexterity and speed to throw the balls to the dictated rhythm and get them in the right spot at the right time so that the composition is just right. Steadily, objects and performers become equals. Each is needed to bring the whole thing together, but this also means that each could upset the balance at any moment.

Review
“What starts as a light and amusing muscle-flexing for all ages, turns into an entertaining and moving multi-media time lapse of the battle between man and technology. (…) Post uit Hessdalen’s performance “by man and robot, for man and robot aged 6 and over” is certainly refreshing.” UUR KULTUUR

About the makers
Post uit Hessdalen is a revolving music theatre company. Its artistic core is formed by cinema­tographer/ circus ­artist Stijn Grupping and theatre maker Ine Van Baelen, who involve other artists with each new creation. Like in festival hit PAKMAN, musician Frederik Meulyzer is once again the perfect musical sounding board for juggler Stijn Grupping.
