A performance on location in the theatre, with the audience as performer and the actor as extra. Man and machine engaged in a mysterious game. But who influences whom?

What if the theatre was the stomach of an enormous whale? Or no wait, a futuristic and completely unknown ecosystem?

Inspired by Moby Dick and the eco science fiction of Jeff Vandermeer and others, Ezra Veldhuis and Bosse Provoost use the entire theatre’s technical apparatus to set your imagination wide open. Indoor Weather puts light, sound and theatrical effects on a par with the human performers. All these elements interact in a mysterious game whose rules lie just beyond our grasp. A fungus-green glow suddenly shimmers on the stage and then spreads like an oil slick throughout the theatre; a player performs extracts from Danish poet Inger Christensen’s monumental poem cycle from 1969; soundscapes swell and fade in space like areas of high and low pressure. Who influences whom in this constantly mutating environment? What depends on what? Is the environment a bulwark or enemy?

In front of the mountains, and before the mountains
burn or break up as planned,
houses are set up, but just houses
that are not real houses, but just real
fronts of unreal houses
into which everyone can easily run
when an artificial rain begins

(poem from it, Inger Christensen)
