"Laughter is a form of internal jogging. It moves your internal organs around. It enhances respiration. It is an igniter of great expectations."
- Norman Cousins
Internal Jogging is a new creation currently in the research and pre-production phase. It will premiere in March 2019 at the Cafe Theater Festival, Utrecht.
Following on from our previous research into audience participation through physical creativity we are setting our sights on the concept of community within our audience. What does it mean to be a community in today's world? What can community mean to us personally and how can it help us to grow? And most importantly, how can we create a community within the confines of a half hour performance?
We take our research to the next level in Internal Jogging by handing even more control to the audience and offering them the chance to truly change the performance. Through teamwork and communication the audience will have the possibility to control the direction, and even the outcome of the performance. The question is will they dare to take control? Will they have the ability to quickly formulate a common goal and make group decisions? Will they win?
