About the Event

Ummm Yeah Okay And? by Ryan O'Shea

17:30 | Zaal 3, Theatrium

I awoke one morning and the church outside my window was gone.

I went to a rave and lost my surroundings.

I saw the beams of light slowly dim into focus from my seat in the auditorium.

I saw the breath of a stag on a winters morning on a David Attenborough documentary.

I saw a city disappear.

I saw people lose themselves.

I saw technicians investigating.

And I was thinking….

Ummm Yeah Okay And? is a performative exploration of ambivalence. Immersing the audience in theatrical fog, it investigates the feeling of having two thoughts at the same time.

The performance will make visible the invisible and the invisible visible, providing a conduit between nature, a theatre and a nightclub. Set in a headspace, the performance permeates with a feelings of unsureness, hesitation, in-betweens and unknowns. Three performers will take audiences through a series of clouded images from the poetic to the absurd,  from the real to the surreal. The minimal scenographic element of fog will pushed to maximal effect paying homage to clowning, to camp and to finding the joy within the ordinary.
