MONO is a turquoise cartoon filled with figures meeting their own chaos. The performance is a research on variation, multiplicity and virtuosity. The physical language flirts with vocabulary from animated films and ideas of heroes and antiheroes. MONO draws on a myriad of dance styles, cultural and political gestures, and mixes humour with seriousness and reinvented meanings. Zapping through images and situations, MONO uncovers blurry realities and absurd fantasies.

BOKKO the ultimate fusion, presented by KAREL VAN LAERE & VANJA RUKAVINA

Fast, furious and fun – enter a world where Karel and Vanja are Bokko kings. Sharp routines and sharp suits. Screaming fans and Manga-inspired avatars. They have it all. Empty fantasy is dressed up with explosive visuals. Inspired by a South Korean dance craze, this show is breathless and all-consuming. Step inside.

Vanja Rukavina (1989) studied at Toneelacademie Maastricht, The Netherlands and graduated in 2011 as an actor. Besides his work at Toneelgroep Amsterdam, he has made his own performances, like The Rukavina Method and From Russia With Love. He also tours with his performance Nobody Home.

Karel van Laere (1988) graduated as theatrical performer in 2011 at the Toneelacademie Maastricht, The Netherlands. Afterwards he studied for a year at the National University for the Arts in Taipei, where he specialised in video art. He has made two video installations Slow and Impact. He also designs sets and costumes for theatre and opera, such as Kepler by Philip Glass.

Rukavina and Van Laere’s first production together was Dance Dance Revolution and they are now touring with BOKKO.
