In the performance Stuk is een nieuwe situatie (2+) we are in the junk attic of the future, a stage-on-stage situation, in which the audience is part of the situation. In a partly analogous, partly digital landscape, the romantic image of nature is questioned. What happens if you dig a mountain and build a city out of it? What happens when ice melts? What happens if the world stops breathing? Can nature break? Can the world break?
Stuk is a new situation is an interdisciplinary, living composition where the young audience and their adult entourage can roam around to their heart's content. Choreographer Anne-Beth Schuurmans, scenographer Elian Smits and composer Dennis van Tilburg collected materials, methods and techniques, devices and other things, movements, sounds and colors to build a breathing, ever changing world. Layer upon layer, with dance, image and music, they build a work with the audience in which new situations are constantly created
