WARBOEL (2024, in creation)
– A musical juggling performance about connection and loneliness –

WARBOEL 1: festival version (±35 min.), directed by Vincent de Rooij, from may 2024
WARBOEL 2: theatre version, directed by Ola Mafaalani, from december 2024

In WARBOEL, two music jugglers, a singer as well as the audience are challenged to make connections and step out of their bubbles. We throw a web of beats and voices, we come together but also get tangled up with each other. Together we look for contact with ‘the other’. But isn’t ‘the other’ yourself?

What makes WARBOEL unique are its innovative instruments. Take for example the Thread Ball, a juggling instrument that makes literal connections between players and spectators by leaving a thread behind with each throw. With the Oddball, a ball full of sensors, bass lines, melodies and soundscapes are created by juggling. And then there’s the Micbal, which records voices from the audience live and weaves them into a musical tapestry of stories.

In the audience you don’t sit still: you throw balls to each other and to the players, are directed by juggling and enticed to participate and open up to each other. You rhythmically connect unexpected words into sentences, intertwined with threads, creating an interplay of juggling, music and meaning.

Step into the world of WARBOEL and experience the meeting between juggling rhythms and singing, between players and audience. WARBOEL cannot exist without you!
