With SOLOKOLOS, A Triple Solo Performance Evening, Jeroen, Elko and Mauro resolutely choose performance. In their solos ‘Look Ma I’m Dancin’, ‘On Left Bank’ and ‘Rocker’, popular culture, everyday life and influences from various art movements flow together. In their – at times – crackingly mad performer brain, these three kings from Underland reinterpret folkloric customs, niche cultures and autobiographical experiences. SOLOKOLOS is a triptych of three individual artists with a strong mutual connection. In SOLOKOLOS, three semi-autobiographical characters are portrayed, swimming towards one and the same figure in different stages of life.
Mauro, Elko and Jeroen present a wonderfully bizarre and at times moving spectacle of movement, readings, tableaux vivants and music. All three place themselves in the avant-garde method: major influences are art forms that arose in the second half of the 20th century such as Conceptual Art, Arte Povera, Absurdism, Art Brut, (Neo) Pop Art and other art forms in which fixed patterns of thought about art, politics and society are questioned. They believe in the power of humor and will therefore exploit it with great seriousness.
The SOLOKOLOS delegates visit: three curious universes, three unique performers and three times music, a corrupted version of frankincense, myrrh and gold.
