Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert / CAMPO - Don't we deserve grand human projects that give us meaning?

Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert / CAMPO - Don't we deserve grand human projects that give us meaning?

Premiere: 31.03 & 1.04 @Beursschouwburg

As part of the focus programme O Solitude (Beursschouwburg) and in collaboration with Performatik 2017 (Kaaitheater).

Who says we don’t want to be inspired?

How do you deal with the universal human desire to be part of a larger whole? 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.

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.
