De Tarabuqueños, de indiaanse bevolking van de Boliviaanse stad Tarabuco, houden vele oude tradities in ere. Een daarvan is een ritueel waarin de dood centraal staat. Mystieke wezens uit de onderwereld die dood noch levend zijn, en mens noch dier, leren de Tarabuqueños de geluiden die bij de vier seizoenen horen. Deze (abstracte) liederen worden vier maanden lang aan een stuk door gespeeld, terwijl de grafische transcripten van de muziek in tapijten worden geweven. Het is deze traditionele ceremonie die het uitgangspunt vormde van deze muzikale performance van OBOL LE, een groep muzikanten uit Chicago en Amsterdam rond de Boliviaanse performer en zangeres Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti.
Naast de performance is er ook een expositie te zien en wordt er een live radioshow opgenomen.
Op 5 mei, Bevrijdingsdag, trappen we af met de eerste performance van drie avonden OBOL LE. Met één ticket kun je alle drie de performances bezoeken en voor We Are Public leden geldt gratis toegang op 5 mei.

Perhaps a fear can strike us when we move through the world at risk of being described and explained, a fear that others may, in their descriptions and explanations, make “real” only a small part of who we “really” “are“, and perhaps when we encounter other things and people in the world, it is in the spirit of our own fear that we must describe and explain them, displacing and assuaging our fear, transforming it into an engine of culture. If these things are the case, do not fear Ben Boye.
Jochem van Tol earned in 2009 his Master of Music at the Interfaculty Artscience of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. Startingpoint of his work is sound in the broadest sense: from the raw frayed edges of popmusic to minimal ‘forgotten’ sounds. As a composer he collaborated in successful theatre productions like “Blaas” from Schweigman&.As a soundartist Jochem van Tol has researched the sounds of paper in the past 7 years in a number of remarkable performances. He shows how much there is to discover in the most simple material and how to choose radical consequences from his discoveries. With Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti he developed a series of sculptural paper instruments and formed The Paper Ensemble. Since 2007 Jochem van Tol | The Paper Ensemble has performed and exhibited extensively abroad, especially in Japan amongst artists like Yoko Ono, John Cage, Mamoru, Yukio Fujimoto, Francis Alys, Germaine Kruip, Toshi Ichiyanagi and Ken’ichi Nakagawa.

He also enjoys a nap and time spent with his dog.
Terneuzen 1981, works with text and textile. After studying VAV at the Rietveld Academy she completed the Master of Performance Art DasArts in Amsterdam in 2009. She weaves and she works with the woven structure of a narrative. Literally she treats textile as language, with precise application of its grammar. Metaphorically speaking she makes flying carpets, vehicles for fantasy, storytelling or travelling. Both in her texts and in her textile works she brings to light equivalences, pointing at connections where there don’t seem to be any. At the same time she keeps record of things falling apart. The resulting contrast of decay and birth points at transformation. She is specialised in the performativity of textile.Apart from collaborations with visual artists and choreographers she works with activists such as The Yes Men and Greenpeace. Her designs have been used as props, costumes and architectural installations.
22 years old, in 2006 approaches theatre at “Quelli Di Grock”, a physical theatre school based in Milan, where for six years he experiences the philosophy of the school in which physicality is at its basics. In the 2013 he moves to Rome where he begins two different paths. One more close to “traditional” acting and the second with the integrated company Superdiverso where he begins a path linked to dance-theater. In 2014 he’s on stage with the company Superdiverso in Rome and Marrakech. In Rome he also attended a under-graduate degree at the department of Arts and Theatre studies (DASS) at the Sapienza university of Rome. Now he is a student in the first year at de Theaterschool of Amsterdam in the Mime course.
Michael Oliver is a first year student in the Mime program at the Theatre School in Amsterdam. He began his journey in theatre in university in the USA where he encountered physical and vocal approaches to performance inspired by the Roy Hart theatre and the Odin Theatre. After visiting and studying the work of both of these theatres he became deeply inspired by the power of the performing body. Michael is also currently following, part-time, the vocal-dance work of Patricia Bardi.
