Pascalerf 48

An invitation for radical stillness in an apartment building

Heintz & Kop 

Location: De Sloot


duration of the performance: 30 min

Silence can be heard, but perhaps in Pascalerf 48, silence can also be seen. A nearly two-meter-high model of the creators’ apartment building serves as the stage for a play of light and darkness.  

A combination of light art, movement, and visual theater invites you for a moment of slowing down and stillness. The shadows and reflections of light are endlessly transformed by the passage of time. From the rising sun filling the space with rays of light to surreal images of infinite space and a sunset in the bedroom. This choreography of light, sound, and material makes you forget time momentarily. 


Tom Heintz (1992) and Jolein Kop (1995) work as scenographers and theater makers. They focus their attention on the small things in life to create moments that evoke wonder. Their work lies at the intersection of theater and installation art. Theater is the place to draw attention to the ordinary and give it a voice. Here, reality merges with their dream world. Theater without actors and text, with a leading role for space and light.
