On invisible transformations in the Anthropocene

We live in an age in which human activity has a profound impact on our physical and ecological surroundings. Nevertheless, these transformations often go unseen – they are literally too large or small for our senses and imagination to take in, despite the fact that we have appropriate measuring instruments. How can we create stories, aesthetics, and spaces of experience to deal with this situation reflexively and critically? And in the theatre, how can we focus attention on the many non-human actors and factors that play a role? Looking for answers, David Weber-Krebs and Jeroen Peeters make a variety of hybrid artistic and theoretical interventions resonate with one another in a performative setting.

• The Kaaitheater has previously presented David Weber-Krebs’ Balthazar (2013), Into The Big World (2015) and Tonight Lights Out! (2016). In December 2017, we are also presenting his new creation Guardians of Sleep. Jeroen Peeters is an essayist, playwright and performer.

What happens exactly when we fall asleep? What is it like to be a viewer watching other people fall asleep in a theatre, to witness this most intimate act? The Guardians of Sleep is a collective attempt to withdraw in a world that is always ‘switched on’ – and where an ‘off’ button simply doesn’t seem to exist.
