I never knew a thing could do so much. I never thought it was possible, but now I’m getting in touch? What can I do and can the sponge do it too? There are so many things that make me feel yellow and blue.


What things surround us? What can you do with things? And more importantly: what can things do with us? Can things actually think? Do thoughts have a thing? Do they thing?

With THINGS THING, Julia Keren Turbahn and Jan Rozman invite you into an overflowing world of things. Into a world of possibilities, in which they encounter things and things encounter them in different ways. Is that your thing? Then be part of it: in a playful performance, Julia and Jan leave room for interpretation, discovery and encounter, and invite everyone from the age of five to thing together.
