1. Cinefication/Tarot and Chess
©  Ergin Çavuşoğlu
Cinefication/Tarot and Chess will be presented at The Image Generator Festival II

The video work ‘Cinefication/Tarot and Chess/’ portrays universal patterns of human behaviour and their relationship to past, present and future, as seen through the prism of literary expressions. The interpretations of the tarot cards allude to classic tales such as ‘Faust’, ‘Oedipus’, and Shakespearian narratives such as ‘Hamlet’, ‘Macbeth’ and ‘King Lear’. Alongside the film Ergin Çavuşoğlu exhibits a series of paintings and reliefs that are representative of the tarot and act as conceptual clarifications.

Screenplay Arnold Barkus and Ergin Çavuşoğlu (based on extracts from ‘Il castello dei destini incrociati’, Italo Calvino © 2002, The Estate of Italo Calvino); cast Gökhan Girginol, Bernard Van Eeghem, Jasper Box, Eurudike De Beul, Junior Mthombeni, Daphné Verhelst, Voss Ryckewaert, Mesut Arslan, Kiluangi Wolf; production Valerie De Visscher, Kevin Reynaert; produced by Platform 0090; coproduction Extra City Kunsthal, FLACC; with support from SAHA (Istanbul), Middlesex University (London), Stad Antwerpen

4, 5, 6 and 7 February 2016 at Krokus Festival, CC Hasselt
The Sisters is a visual music performance in which two enormous puppets - two sisters - take the main lead. In a large installation full of refreshing details a performance is developed without words. Together with the audience, the puppets discover theirselves, each other and the world. But who is really in charge of the strings?

With The Sisters, 4 artists create a poetic universe bordering theater, music, dance and visual arts. A fascinating performance with long legs, surprising transformations, flying blankets and crying buckets.

4. Verborgen Gezicht

I would like to talk to people about clocks
About the fragility of the mechanisms
The narrowness of the springs
The dark sides of the cog wheels
These days, no one gives a clock a moment’s thought
Maybe that’s why people are sad?
They don’t feel the life behind the small and the big hands!
I would like to share the secret of clocks with people.
Then they would open their eyes.
Then they might perhaps make and tell their own stories.

5. Blow Boys Blow

In “Blow Boys Blow“ Dennis Deter and his crew celebrate the long history of links between seafarers and the theatre world. Many years ago sailors were used as technicians on the world stages. Since then there has been a close link between theatres and sailing ships. Seamen not only knew how to move skilfully over the stage and between the lights, tie tight knots and improve the curtains; they also brought their superstitions, their terminology and their traditions into theatre. In this tempestuous show seven performers master every obstacle with their spirited songs and keep the ship on course until the last curtain.

Premiére in Tanzfabrik Berlin on 11, 12, 13 and 14 February 2016.

Performance: Dennis Deter, Jan Fedinger, Davis Freeman, Jassem Hindi, Taavet Jansen, Tommy Noonan, Jean-Baptiste Veyret-Logerias | Dramaturgy: Carolin Hochleichter | Production management: Ann-Kathrin Reimers | "Blow Boys Blow" is a production of Dennis Deter in coproduction with Tanzfabrik Berlin, Platform 0090 and artblau Tanzwerkstatt Braunschweig.
