ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Looking at it all objectively; if we take a numerical approach; will we discover that we are all the same? Or will we find out that all differences between people and cultures lie much deeper than we think?
An international team of Dutch and Japanese top mathematicians is close to discovering a model that explains cultural differences. Their clashes and misunderstandings provide the best argument that their formulas are much needed. Both in bright fluorescent light and under disco lights, these four fearless mathematicians enter the minefield of cultural misunderstanding.
Superposition is an idealistic show as well as an absurd mathematical equation: the similarities and differences between the Netherlands and Japan, between probability and geometry, between man and woman and between newness and tradition are contrasted. A performance about wanting to get through to each other and trying to understand the true inner being of humans, albeit via a giant detour.
The performance will be surtitled in English, Dutch and Japanese
Director Vanja Rukavina
“When an elementary particle is in ‘superposition,’ it is in 2 (or more) states at the same time. I myself was raised bi-culturally and always draw from two different sources. In addition, I have been studying the Japanese language for 12 years and have made many trips around the country. Being an outsider and getting a glimpse of a third culture makes it increasingly clear to me how valuable it is to step outside your own bubble. Even though different worlds are totally different from each other, they are both equally true.” — photo Nienke Veneboer
