Performance collective URLAND, together with the Dutch-Icelandic theatre maker Vincent van der Valk, makes an inexplicable yet appetizing mini-revue about the End-Time story from Norse mythology. The ‘Ragnarok’ is a flaming, cosmological, archetypal, bombastic, violent and as dark a story as it is hopeful. For all of those addicted to painkillers, for everyone looking for a story in these post-narrative and post-digital times, for all the over- and understimulated art consumers. The moment of truth. Thus URLAND blows the Gjallar horn: it’s showtime!
‘URLAND doet’ is a playful series with anti-theatrical experiments. They are naughty dreams, seen exclusively in the studio of TR William Boothlaan. In this series, URLAND gives their answer to the multiplicity and complexity of an absurd reality. Three weeks of work, one week of showing. Deeds, not words.
