Unprecedented power in acrobatics and storytelling
Benjamin ‘Monki’ Kuitenbrouwer immediately made a great impression with his performances immediately after graduating. In the latest solo Static , he combines his dazzling mastery of the double Chinese pole with live music and theater. Static hangs in the middle between a show and an evening in a boy’s room. Time is central: giving time and taking time. But also the fascination of the current generation of thirties – Monki’s peers – for old-fashioned, inefficient technology such as the record player and the Gameboy. Where does fascination end and unhealthy nostalgia begin? Surrounded by vinyl singles, game computers and strong stories about the past, Monki shares his view of the world with humor and openness.
