Martin Nachbar


How is the theatrical experience created? For performers and the audience alike, physical activity and exertion are requirements.  Based on this theory, Thingamajig sets out to examine the interplay between the movements of sitting and watching, together with the working body in motion.  A choreography emerges, in which observing is considered participation and where the dancers are set in motion by the resistance and overlapping between dance and work. At the end both the performers and audience will leave the theater as if it would have been the oeuvre itself.
