Join us to a performance of stories of shame collected all around the world with Trixa Arnold and Ilja Komarov! This event will be hosted by Gilbert at his wine and art bar Koffie & Ambacht! Come down have a drink and listen to Shame Archive!
For some years, artists Trixa Arnold and Ilja Komarov recorded stories on shame. Those are collected in a worldwide archive of shared shame, both online and as a publication. Now, these memories are staged in very informal and small-scale performances around the world.
Where? Koffie & Ambacht Ebenhaezerstraat 52a Rotterdam south
When? 20 May @ 20h
This event is in English. (And different kinds of DIY English. And we’re not ashamed of it.)
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
In the 90s Trixa Arnold and Ilja Komarov were touring Europe with the punk-pop trio Les Halmas. For two years they lived in St. Petersburg/RU and played with Russian musicians from the jazz-, pop- and electronic music scene. They moved to Zurich in 2003 and have been active in the independent theatre scene ever since. Since 2007 they have been bringing theatre projects to the stage together. Music is an important part of all their projects. What they like about theatre is that the physical presence of the actors and the audience is a necessary part of every performance. Their work can also be shown in other venues than theatres. In this way, they can reach audiences that usually do not go to the theatre. The term "contemporary travelling theatre" is an apt description of what they do. They deal with formats that invite the audience to become involved in the exploration of a theme. They live in Zurich.
