Deep in the dunes of the Middle East, 4 lost souls,
bound by the need to tell a tale, found each other
in an unlikely place: the stage. Their imagination
took them to new places, they ventured hundreds
of seas, until the tides grew so strong, they were
forced to part ways. Only now, they find themselves
together, once again, to more tales.
At I-Object we believe every object around us secretly
watches as our days unfold. We follow one seemingly
ordinary object, through time, space, and beyond, and
take a peek at the kind of stories it has seen and been
a part of.

Show - If You Say So
The format “If You Say So” has been developed to organically feel different languages and cultures and get inspired by them. It begins with an organic opening, accompanied by music, inspired by a saying out of an audience members’ culture. Without a translation, the two women move through what this saying makes them feel, forming a deeper inspiration out of the initial saying. What follows is a free montage of scenes that are connected to the opening and therefor the saying itself. In this stage, everything goes and every choice is supported by the other. Everything can be called back if it feels right. About half way through the show, there is a declaration from the audience in which the translation and real meaning of the saying gets explained by the audience member who gave the inspiration. The show ends with a merger of the before played scenes and the reality of the given saying. This format shows that one can have an understanding and a feeling for a culture even without being able to speak the language. It also shows the connections that can ensue once you are able to understand each other. Movement, feelings, music, contact, listening and language itself are a big factor in bringing people from different backgrounds together. Which is ultimately what we all strive for.
