FIRE is a performance that the audience itself brings to life, in a group, seated around a symbolic campfire. Personal stories are evoked and a spontaneous oral tradition is created.
For Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank, FIRE is part of a cycle called Table Dialogues - five interactive performances according to the elements of Chinese WuXing: earth, fire, water, wood and metal. Within Table Dialogues they investigate the concept of a theater production as a modular whole – comparable with a collection of short stories. In this way, Table Dialogues becomes a collection of intimate performances in which dialogue, wonder and fun are central.
Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank previously made EARTH (2021) within this cycle, in which two people bring a cosmos to life, within which they can discover hidden truths and learn more about each other. In the end, they create a gift for each other, while talking and drawing.
