Doublespeak | Doublethink, a new program has two new dates in two months in two cities in two countries:

PostX – 30 January 2021 – Merelbeke, Belgium

Unerhoerte Musik, BKA Theater – 16 February 2021 – Berlin, Germany

“You do not exist,” George Orwell 1984

In the iconic book, 1984, Orwell defines Doublethink as the ability to hold two contradictory thoughts in one’s head and to believe them both simultaneously. In this program we will walk the edge between two thoughts, doubling and negating the original, both the sound of the trombone and the physical performance itself. The soloist, Thomas Moore will take on a split personality, be pre-recorded, live-manipulated, duplicated and nullified.
