Panama Pictures

Theater

While everything in the universe strives for chaos, man tries again and again to bring order. But we have abolished most of the ideologies and structures that once helped us with that orientation; they were too restrictive to serve as a signpost. At the same time, the world seems to be on fire, and one crisis overshadows another. The Man who fell from the sky captures this collective feeling of being adrift and dislocated. The performers seem to have washed ashore. High in the air, they hang from branches of an uprooted tree, balancing on moving platforms.

While everything in the universe strives for chaos, man tries again and again to bring order. We want to explain, to understand. But we have abolished most of the ideologies and structures that once helped us with that orientation; they were too restrictive to serve as a signpost. At the same time, the world seems to be on fire, and one crisis overshadows another. So, what are we left with now?

The Man who fell from the sky captures this collective feeling of being adrift and dislocated. The performers seem to have washed ashore. High in the air, they hang from branches of an uprooted tree, balancing on moving platforms. Is this the aftermath of a disaster? The harbinger of a major change? The Man who fell from the sky shows seven men who, without guidance or compass, have to relate to an environment that is subject to change.

About Panama Pictures

Dynamic, unpolished and at times spectacular, but at the same time vulnerable and intimate. Panama Pictures creates performances on the cutting edge of dance and circus, in which the disciplines flow effortlessly into each other and enter into dialogue with architectural sets and live music. A new universe is constructed for each performance. Dance and acrobatics are intertwined with classical music, electronic beats and singing.

Panama Pictures takes its audience into a sensory and physical story about universal subjects. Choreographer Pia Meuthen translates literary and philosophical sources of inspiration into poetic images and knows how to touch her spectators with the great physical impact and human appearance of the whole. She shows worlds that are recognizable but always leave room for individual interpretation.

Panama Pictures is the parent company of the Verkadefabriek in 's-Hertogenbosch and is supported by the Performing Arts Fund NL, the province of North Brabant and the municipality of 's-Hertogenbosch.
