Er rent een berg voorbij Plankton

Let yourself be carried away by an immense landscape painting that comes to life and makes you think on a different time scale. From the birth of the moon, past the first algae to come ashore, to the extinction of humans and even further...

This is the monumental story of how our earth is constantly changing, told through a huge backdrop of cardboard rivers, clouds and trees. In A Mountain Runs Past, forests crawl across the stage, mountains crumble into beaches and the moon dances a waltz with the sea, while a four-part choir produces the sound of creaking rocks and chirping birds. Let yourself be carried away by an immense landscape painting that has come to life and makes you think on a different time scale.

Plankton is the collective of Sonja van Ojen and Hendrik Kegels. With their shared fascination for the magic of the everyday, they create performances that lie on the border between object theatre, visual art and mime. Where fantasy writers create worlds with elves and trolls, Plankton mythologizes electrical sockets, pebbles and fire extinguishers. In a committed manner, but always with a gentle hand, Plankton gives a platform to the non-human, the things that normally do not get a chance to speak. They create worlds in which things no longer exist as a function of humans. In which man is no longer the center, not above everything else, but in between, on an equal footing.
