MS DOS / Prometheus geketend

MSDOS/Prometheus geketend represents part one of a binary fireball ‘de Internet Trilogie’ in which Urland uses its explosive and bizarre approach to find contrasts between and connections with the Prometheia of Aeschylus and the Internet. Each part of the trilogy will be given an obstruction. Physical, non-physical and political.

Follies Fille

Sometimes gargantuan, and sometimes more akin to a little girl, she draws great mansions and stuffs her audience into tiny boxes, or serves tea in cups of monstrous proportions. Hers is a world in which there is no talk of archetypal constructions or hierarchies of gender and rank, but in which one joins in the play: by means of video projections, live drawing, reconstructions of nature, and theatrical inventions. Boas blows objects and people out of proportion, only to reduce them to tiny specks the next moment using projection techniques. She plays with varying scales, turning the actors into extensions of her imagination. Her work is a blend of object theatre and French pop music.
