Fase is a circus performance that takes the deconstruction of juggling as a starting point. One performer only focuses on catching objects and on their flight. His opponents are tennis ball machines.
In the performance the audience is given the time to fully absorb this simple situation. One man versus three machines that tries to catch all the balls that come his way. How sometimes and sometimes it does not work and the effect it has on a person. The sound of the electric motors and how the stage slowly fills up with fluorescent yellow.
Fase can be about circus, about the relationship between people and technology, about life. But perhaps all those interpretations and meanings stand in the way of a different kind of experience. One in which we simply look and listen to what “is” and not what it could be about.
