Theater

Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert's most recent theater production 'Don't we deserve grand human projects that give us meaning' premiered the 31th of March at Performatic Festival in Beursschouwburg, Brussels and is now touring the world.

In their third performance, Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert look for meaning in a world with no Grand Narrative, in their very own way: with references to space travel and science, in a strong visual logic. Check campo.nu for info and upcoming shows!

Don't we deserve grand human projects that give us meaning? — whereas in the past Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert were still the operators who set the transformations of the images and scenes in motion, in Don’t we deserve grand human projects that give us meaning? they examine how they themselves can for the first time become part of their installations and designs. The artists divide and duplicate themselves as atoms in an imaginary world of primary colours that stands out sharply against the pure white landscape they find themselves in.

"An intelligent combination of visual art and theater. Humoristic games of repetitition reveal the issues of an ever demanding society and upen up ideas about purpose in life." - ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Theaterkrant, Moos Van den Broek

'TO BREAK - The window of opportunity' is a visual installation brought to life, with an inevitable ending. This production was selected for Theater Aan Zee in August 2014 and toured Europe for two years. The piece is still bookable. For more info see below...

TO BREAK - the window of opportunity — Robust, honest materials lay scattered along a desolate plain. Wood, metal and some plastic here and there. Besides that: emptiness. In what wilderness have we found ourselves? Are we in Saudi-Arabia? Arizona? Is it an abandoned beach? Little by little, the landscape is filled with colour and the elements come to life ingeniously. From then on, we leave on a road trip across time and its Window of Opportunity.

'A Journey Into Space' was the very first feature theater production by R&F F&R. The piece was initiated during their masters course at the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in Ghent and developed further into a professional theater production in collaboration with CAMPO.

A Journey into Space — the scene is empty and dark. The only people out there are Robbert&Frank, a garden gnome and the origami animals called Mark & Jenny. The only light comes from a beamer. The beamer is the sun in the dark performance-galaxy. It creates life in the darkness and brings movie into the theaterspace. The result is not a play, it's not a movie, it's a surreal Bukowsky inspired trip into an unknown scifi universe.
