Description

In the new OHTwork the stage is stripped bare. A show which disappears, withdraws and tells of nothing. At the heart ofthe work is a vacuum, an absence which allows something we know but no longer know howto see to come out. In depriving the stage and the matterwhich inhabits it of constituted meanings, OHT is paying homage to the theatre forwhatitis: a theatre is a theatre is a theatre is a theatre.

Taking up the musical form of solfège, the show gets back to stage fundamentals, rediscovering the component parts of the theatre machine: wings, heavens, backcloth, lights, lighting platforms, counterweights. Each element is a voice to be heard in pure form. Voices which can be heard because they are wordless. Exactly like in solfège where the notes materialise in the ears in themselves: do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-si.
