Enough land for crops is available on earth to feed all mankind. Due to the use of fertilisers, the industrialisation of agriculture, and the cultivation of energy-rich crops, such as corn, the harvested energy per area has multiplied. In spite of this, one billion people suffer from hunger. The production of meat and bio fuel increases the competition for arable land. [more …]

Our way of life depends on a steady influx of energy. A huge infrastructure of pipes and roads guarantees a regular supply of electricity, fuel, and gas. However, the limited availability of fossil fuels and the simultaneous growth of the world's cities require new concepts for mobility and urban structures. [more …]

Nature makes wasteful use of its resources. Seen in this light, the population explosion and the non-sustaining use of energy could be regarded as natural. Nature, however, does not destroy its resources, but feeds them into a circulatory system. Humanity has the ability to understand this relationship and should therefore be able to anticipate the consequences of its actions and use energy wisely. Why does this not happen? [more …]

When it comes to the arts, the term energy is hard to define. The energy involved in singing or in a performance is difficult to determine and hard to measure. How is it possible to theorise about or put into words something that cannot be weighed, counted, or pictured? [more …]

Does theatre have its own specific energy? How can a performer's energy be felt? Is this impression the result of physical training? Do “energetic transmission” happen in theatre? Is each performance a work about disappearance? Is it (self-)dissipation? [more …]

Schwalbe | Lotte van den Berg (50–60 min, 14/10 €)

© Stephan van Hesteren
Directed by Lotte van den Berg, the group Schwalbe presents a carbon-neutral performance. Both light and heat are produced by the physical presence of the performers.
