The wind gathers, rising up suddenly.

Two men on a fragile boat, a trip to sea – a few drinks, a bite to eat – when one of them decides to push on to the open ocean. Suddenly there they are: among the distant islands, the threatening fog and gathering swell of the sea, bound together on an odyssey into the unknown.

Jon Fosse’s work includes novels, poetry, essays and books for children. He is one of the most produced playwrights in Europe and his plays have been translated into forty languages.

(Past) Dark Matters

Tent Rotterdam presents a groupshow with Silvia B., Marc Bijl, Marielle Buitendijk, Dario D’Aronco, Jeroen Kuster, Charl Landvreugd, Dirk van Lieshout, Sandro Setola, Renie Spoelstra en Fiona Weir. The artist’s work in Dark Matters takes you to a place whose nature is not immediately revealed, a universe that seems to be elsewhere, in the past, in a fantasy or in the subconscious. And yet, the images are etched in the collective subconscious, or we recognise them from movies, a dream or the news. What unites these works is a sense of discovery through feeling your way around. Dark Matters searches for a moment where the world becomes inexplicable, mysterious, and indefinable.
