PAKMAN lives faster than a mouse can click. Drives around the country to deliver packages – always precisely on time. 1 package, 2 forms, 3 stamps, 6 autographs, 450 times a day, 159.750 packages a year and in return 10 holidays. PAKMAN is a sole and invisible man in our virtual economy. On board of his small truck, PAKMAN invites the audience for a rhythmical circus performance.
PAKMAN is a duel between the rhythms of juggler Stijn Grupping and drummer Frederik Meulyzer. Together they explore the hastiness of ‘our’ time. How does this imposed speed oppose our natural rhythms such as breathing and heartbeat? Stijn and Frederik let the rhythms and routines of their bouncing balls and drums dialogue. Their instruments harmonize and clash.
