A uniform is a sentence
Puppet theater performance, 2022

"Who are 'we'? We do not know what is going on between us. We do not know what the band is and we do not know how to coordinate the chorus. The sound emerges from from the crowd.”

A uniform is a sentence was a puppet theatre performance. It consisted of a choreography across three different spaces: the orangery, the ballroom and the wine cellar. Visitors were guided through the building, accompanied by shifting musical compositions, and experienced the story unfold in several acts.

Along the way, the visitors met several fictional characters, all of whom tried to find their place in the building: at work, in the family and in the community. The performance questioned what we mean by 'collectivities' and 'communities' - and whether we can create new connections through collective disorientation.
