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

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
