Chatter, Clatter and Other Arrangements




Things that you do when you do things that you do when things that you do do things that when you do things you do the things that you do to the things that one does things to.



Chatter, Clatter and Other Arrangements is a solo for three and 74 objects, where the objects organise themselves around bodies and the bodies organise themselves around objects. It could all be waste from the junk yard, someone’s belongings left behind, things from your cupboard, from your slaughtered brother or things that we stole. The stage becomes a drifting space where the bodies and the objects push each other into different forms and constellations, and where they constantly need to adapt to new relations. Fragmented as well as together, these body-objects and object-bodies move to infiltrate each other and present themselves as scenarios of theatre and sculpture. 

How does this random collection of objects become specific, how can these fragments of movements/objects/bodies stumble upon each other and create moments of seeming wholeness? Chatter, Clatter and Other Arrangements moves between banalities and meaning, between stable bodies and restless ones, through a space of different images.
