... the repeating ode to the repeating ode to ...
"There are programs running all over the place. The ones doing their job, doing what they are meant to do, are invisible." - The Matrix Reloaded
‘Loopstation’ is an ode to routine and habit, to the beauty of the everyday and the wonder of the patterns that keep the world turning. Because, in contrast with what we would like to believe – that we are adventurous and always in search of wonderment and excitement, not held down by fixed patterns – as people we are actually in search of familiarity, balance and our usual structure.
In ‘Loopstation’ nine performers construct a world on a rotating disc, a fascinating microcosm where everything is connected and the looping doesn’t stop things moving forward. A performance with live music for the main stage, where everything today is a little bit like yesterday but still different to tomorrow. Where growth is not an obligation but a natural consequence of the actions that give meaning to existence.
Nothing is completely new and yet everything is always different. ‘Loopstation’ is an ode to routine and repetition.
