 In Stammen the audience is invited into the smooth landscape of the tundra where everything appears to be of equal importance, signs, images and characters manifest and disappears again. The performance tries to avoid description, but fails every step of the way. When you recognise something it is already on the move, like social media, the development of AI, like a nomadic landscape. To experience Stammen is to see theatre through a caleidoscope.

 Stammen does not invite to a room for reflection, but is a fast paced, intens whirlwind image of a mental landscape that produces a bunch of feeling, without desiring to manipulate you or convince you of anything.

The audience is taken through a dramaturgy that flows through 4 archetypical emotions, sadness, fear, anger, disgust, surprise and happiness and through compositions and juxtapositions of variations of these. The actors perform choreography, solo and ensemble, create secretive and mystical fictions that are dissolved continuously and relate to each other in non-determined situations that opens up to the imagination of the audience

 You could regard the performance as a meditation. When you meditate, emotions come and go, pleasant and unpleasant. The meditative practice, speculative as it may seem, consists of observing thoughts and emotions and their effects, acknowledge them and let them be. The expressions of emotions, the intensity and emotionality that are produced on stage in this performance do not want anything from the audience, the emotions exhibit themselves with their effects through the actors and it its up to the audience member to create logic, possible narratives or just observe themselves and the work.
