As the title suggests, FAILBETTER is failing.
Daring to fail.
In that instance maybe not failing.
Escaping the field of failure and definition.
As a playground of endless possibilities, it creates a landscape of spontaneous relations; to the space, to oneself, in between ourselves; playing with the imaginary of one’s mind. Moments of intimacy, friction and
utopia are formed, dissolving almost too fast to be noticed.
The performers find themselves back in an arena
of constant attempts to make sense of their words,
their actions and their surroundings.
In his new creation Renan Martins draws a thin line between
the grotesque and the ordinary where composition
becomes a byproduct of the performers’ emotional journey.
The performers are granted full permission to visit their
vulnerability, their weakness, their strength…
At times FAILBETTER is more an attempt than an actual piece.
