A philosophical theatre production of figures and objects for four hands, drums, wood and spirit.
“PanTaDam” is about Pan, the Greek shepherd god with the feet of a goat who is said to be dead, and the question of what he actually was: man, animal, god, or a bit of everything – a Pantadam? Employing unusual methods, we go in search of him to discover a dancing god – or just a broken branch? Do forest spirits speak to each other – or is it just weird tones made by metal and wood? Do we see passengers boarding a ship, the moon rising on the horizon – or just white balls and a flashlight in a hand? As long as we see and hear with our own senses, we will always influence what we perceive. Behind everything is music, sometimes audible, sometimes silent. Because, without music, everything would likely be an error.
