Fire – Table Dialogues
Table Dialogues is a long-term project by visual theatre makers Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert for which they are designing five interactive performances that correspond to the elements of Chinese Wu Xing: earth, fire, water, wood and metal. The artists are immersing themselves in the concept of theatre production as a modular entity, analogous to an anthology of short stories. In this way, Table Dialogues will be a collection of intimate performances centred on dialogue, wonder and the joy of playing.
“Fire” is a performance in which Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert explore the origins of storytelling. The audience can become active themselves in groups of up to eight people. Sitting around a symbolic campfire, they draw from their own personal stories to create a spontaneous oral tradition. In this way, the audience collectively creates a magical atmosphere of connection and introspection.
Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert employ the same dialectic they experience as a duo when they play, create and develop projects together. What is important to them is, that they want to share not only the result, but also the process and the experience itself with the audiences.
