Jan Rozman and Julia Keren Turbahn: THINGS THING

I never knew a thing could do so much. I never thought it was possible, but now I’m getting in touch? What can I do and can the sponge do it too? There are so many things that make me feel yellow and blue.

What things surround us? What can you do with things? And more importantly: what can things do with us? Can things actually think? Do thoughts have a thing? Do they thing?
With THINGS THING, Jan Rozman and Julia Keren Turbahn invite you into an overflowing world of things. Into a world of possibilities, in which they encounter things and things encounter them in different ways. Is that your thing? Then be part of it: in a playful performance, Jan and Julia leave room for interpretation, discovery and encounter, and invite everyone from the age of six to thing together.

The work is produced by EMANAT Institute from Slovenia in partnership with the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre and in cooperation with FELD Theater für junges Publikum in Berlin. Performance is suitable for children of age 6+.
