“Wonderful and well-functioning (…) unpredictable, well orchestrated & thoughtful in relation to the subject which the title expresses very concisely.

TING finishes with a great philosophical finale.”

Kirsten Dahl, anmelder Teateravisen

“TING is definitely a wonderful experience. (…)

TING is innovative, clever and quite unique. Participatory art at its best.”

Henrik Vestergaard, Live Art Denmark

2020 Own production

TING is a performance and a life size boardgame in one.  Take a pair of headphones on and enter the Universe of Things.  On a 100 square meter board, you and 11 other players encounter 100 yellow objects. Here presents “the voice” in a poetic composition a set of reflective challenges.  TING is a playful platform that explores human relationships with objects.

No other mammal on earth is dependent on things the way we are. We cannot live without our things, but which ones are most important? What things do we need to preserve at any cost and who has the power to decide that?

TING can be played by adults and children older than 11 years. 

Approved as professional Performance Art by the Danish Arts Foundation. (refusionsgodkendt)

Length: 50 minutes. 

TING can be played in Danish & Dutch.

“I think it was fun, exciting and informative. I got an insight into how the body and different things have something in common. We hide things away for example, but you can also hide yourself away sometimes and feel a bit lonely. There will always be an end to things and an end to humans, they also have that in common.”
