— the first season of tangent -

We assumed a step by step modus operandi and we embraced the idea of an everchanging art craft. That is why the primordial premises of our working process are based on exploring the vast theme of language.

We need language. We create language. We exist within a language.  We are language. As we perceive it, language is the fundamental tool that provides the artistic identity. Therefore, our first creations were labeled as invention means of self-defining and self-discovering the core language of tangent company.

FALSE

What makes something false? In a world where falseness would be totally inexistent, how does truth count as a value? What is the positive impact of a false assertion in a life-or-death situation? What are the real consequences when we make false judgements? What is the difference between false and fake? Is imitation a form of falseness? Imitation has been said to be the most efficient active learning method… Art is based on mimesis, as art’s aim has been for centuries the most valuable way of understanding and reflecting life as it is. Is art false?

Nowadays, the everlasting unbalanced relationship between true and false has become a very nuanced and controversial topic. Creation needs nuances and controversy. That is why…

Our very first collective creation which explores the Pandora’s box (actually jar) of falseness is called F.false feedback and it deals with one of the most common and traumatizing type of social interaction of our times.

Stay tuned and be aware of the false feedback in your daily life!

INSPIRATION

Inspiration is one of the most attractive double-meaning words. On the first hand, inspiration defines the miraculous act of breathing. On the other hand, it describes the magical moment when a sudden brilliant idea appears. How far do you imagine we can grasp this two-edged topic?

We thought I.inspired inspiration is a good title for our second collective creation.

One little fun fact & spoiler alert>>

the background story of this artwork is based on a tangent member real life experience.

WILD

Scholars wrote about it. Set designers captured some of its shapes through very diverse sceneries. Directors tried to depict it either naturalistic, or metaphorical. Actors were challenged to incorporate it so the audience could feel and understand its special properties. But it never felt enough. Because you have to explore it for real.

Yes. We are talking about the Shakespearian forest. A world of total freedom, magic, promiscuity, danger, darkness and infinite beauty. The place where characters escape from their duties, moralities and realities. A space where everyone could imagine everything.

In Puck’s words>

 „And this weak and idle theme, no more yielding but a dream.”

W.wild woods. a site-specific and site-responsive creation which represents tangent’s attempt to go beyond urban enclosures while experiencing the real feel of a forest at night, populated with Shakespeare’s wild pilgrims.

Would you like to be a part of this adventure?

QUESTIONS

Who? Where? When? How? Why? For whom?

Which are the questionable questions?

How do we choose to answer them?

How can we best address a question?

How does “why” sound? How does “what” smell? How does „how” move? What does „who” look like?

Q.questionable questions. a physical theatre performance that links existential questions with interrogations that precede every artwork.

a tangent creation about THE QUESTION that preexists in every yet unexpressed thought.

to be or not to be… that is NOT the question. or is it?
