KIKKER STELT VOOR: Vanja Rukavina/coproductie Het Nationale Theater
If two people do not share a language, they cannot understand each other. Simple. But, if you understand even one word of someone else’s speech, you are presented with a problem. You have entered the world of another culture, another way of doing things, maybe even a different way of thinking.
Naturally, in this performance, language is central. Communication is a bridge between cultures, but it’s also a barrier. How can particular words, and even rules of grammar, determine thinking patterns, world visions and culture? Why is it impossible to create a ‘true’ translation? And can you disconnect language from feeling or experience?
This performance includes strobe lighting and has English surtitles.
