Nettles is an audio experience which takes the audience to a place where we listen to our inner voices. It is a voyage between two extremes: childhood and death. Visual-acoustic landscapes appear, a metaphor for our personal, inner path of consciousness and intensely emotional, human existence. Equipped with headphones and accompanied by a voice, the audience members are sent individually on a path through the set. They have to cross subtle boundaries between dream and reality, memory and contemplation, and are carried back to a state of childlike anxiety and uncertainty, where death takes on an archetypal dimension.
Trickster-p is Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl. Their productions are fantastical, poetic installations in which space, sound, objects and light become performers. By breaking down the barriers between the performing and visual arts, the protagonists create a microcosm whose rules deviate from those of usual perceptions of space and time. They create an aesthetic and emotional experience in which stories arise in the imagination of the spectators. The special poetics of their works, which can be seen at festivals worldwide, have earned them a unique place in contemporary international theatre.
