LEAK

Festival Unidram | BOT (Niederlande)  

01 – 02 Nov 2019Music theatre

An abandoned room, its interior covered with white cloths. Underneath, strange mechanics and machinery are hidden: a wheelchair-accessible cello with an auxiliary motor could hardly be more graceful and graceful. A giant, rusty circular saw blade gongs heavily to mischievously clattering dentures. Restlessly rotating dance shoes look for feet that fit. Things, people and the same problems: If you no longer control your own life, you become dependent. Four musicians tune in to what can come with a song of praise of stubbornness and at the same time sing a comic-tender and bizarre memento mori.

BOT is a musical theatre quartet consisting of Geert Jonkers, Tomas Postema, Job van Gorkum and Doan Hendriks. Their instruments - they call them sound machines - are homemade from seemingly worthless materials. The ensemble has developed an authentic language in which music, object theatre and mechanical sound art merge into lively musical performances. Since their first appearance at the Oerol Festival 2009 with the production "RAMKOERS" the group BOT is regularly on tour with their productions at home and abroad.
