Extratonal Special #1: Someone's Trash Is Someone's Treasure: The (Dis-)Harmonics Of Waste
Date: 2024/02/24 20:00 - 2024/02/24 23:00

Door: 20:00h CET
Start: 20:30h CET
Entrance: 5 euro

We are honoured to welcome you to our first thematic event of 2024. Every 2 months, under the name 'extratonal special' the platform for extratonality will invite artists and thinkers to investigate particular extratonal themes and subjects in and around Varia. Our first special programme is dedicated to the (dis-)harmonics of waste. Trash is obviously a big problem for our fast-consuming society, but what exactly is our relationship to it? Could it be that in our understanding of it we disregard its transformative compositional and performative potential? With the help of four acts we will delve deeper into the life and harmony of waste. Discover your inner trash!

The image contains different metal trash cans and vacuum cleaners. The are centered in the image and highlighted with different lights. Around them you is the audience observing them and listening to them.
"The Muttering Void" by Werner van der Zwan and Gökay Atabek.

Werner van der Zwan investigates how a sense of life can be created in the non-living. By animating found objects and giving them a lifeworld he tries to question the dichotomy between subject and object. He does this by morphing the objects into moving bodies using electromotors. In Varia he will present “The Muttering Void”, a music theater piece created together with Gökay Atabek, which explores how vacuum cleaners and trash bins can be given a voice and relate to us humans.

On the photo you see the artists on the street dressed up as a trashman. The artist sweeps with the broom different objects.
"Trail of Trashure" (2019) by ieke Trinks. Photo by Sungjae Lee.

ieke Trinks mainly makes performances and performative works that are often inspired by consumer-oriented behavior and all the material that comes with it. It includes messing around with things, objects that are everywhere and the constant moving and transporting of all that stuff. The performance during Extratonal is expected to consist of very everyday elements.

On the image you see the artists in one of his mobile trash bag installations.
"Rode Hoed" (2013) by Karel van der Eijk.

Karel van der Eijk is an artist who makes installations with sound and mechanics as a central theme. His sculptural works are created from various materials, from wood and steel to skate wheels, clothes pegs, garbage bags and more. You can find his work at exhibitions but also regularly at festivals where he gives performances.

Danny Tirthdas van der Kleij, joak en vitrinekast will present the results of the extratonal education session that will be held in the afternoon. The workshop, titled "Oud-Charlois PCB-Dérive" conducts an acoustic exploration of Rotterdam waste.

This event is made possible with the kind support of Popunie Rotterdam, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Rotterdam, Stichting Volkskracht and Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
