The gym looks like every other school gym. Dancers seem to be ordinary dancers. Feet look like normal feet. Hands resembling ordinary hands. Until: look at that tongue! It is very long, isn’t it? I’m sure you can gobble down a lot with it!
Bodies become different, limb by limb. One body looks like a woman, the other one looks like a man, the next one is also a man, but different. Different from that first man. Different to that first man. Or to the other one. Who is who in VRETEN!? Who is normal? And who decides? Can the differences be bridged?
GOBBLING DOWN! is a performance about inclusion for all audiences (6+) that makes a warm plea to notice difference but not to let them prevent us from sharing experiences together.
GOBBLING DOWN! is performed in school gyms or in situ.
