I, Phone

Rob Smorenberg/De Warme Winkel/Veem House for Performance | NL

Share this show

I, Phone is a moving portrait of contemporary man in relation to the smartphone. The multitasking of scrolling, apping, taking a screenshot, swiping, etc., accumulates into a virtuoso movement performance. An analogue body surfs through time and space on a non-stop wave of information. Gradually, man and technology merge and a portrait of homo cellularis emerges.

Location Zuiderpark/Tent Rood
Running time 40 min.
Genre Performance

I, Phone is the first in a series of movement performances in which Rob Smorenberg uses our human movement apparatus to translate everyday themes into formal abstractions.

In his work as a maker, Rob Smorenberg seeks an aesthetic abstraction of our daily actions. As a performer, he has been associated with De Warme Winkel (formerly toneelgroep Amsterdam) for several years and has performed in De Warme Winkel plays, De Drie Musketiers, Vincent Rietveld goes for the Louis d'Or and Afscheidstournee, among others. De Warme Winkel regularly presents performances by fresh theatre talents, kindred spirits, who have come into being left or right with one of the members of the collective.
