Back in the days of Hamlet the seven celestial spheres and their planets still revolved around the earth and the murder on the king –the Minister of God- made nature revolt.
By combining historical sources and technology in a futuristic theatre production, Eric Joris (CREW) and Mesut Arslan (0090) give new insights into Hamlet's conflict.
The Internet Trilogy
For three years, Urland researched the internet under the wings of the Theater Rotterdam Production House.

EXPLORER/Prometheus unchained is a staged performance by CREW and Urland, a collective of young makers, in collaboration with Productiehuis Rotterdam and premiered at Krijn Boon Studio, Rotterdamse Schouwburg (NL). EXPLORER/Prometheus unchained is the centerpiece of The Internet Trilogy, a series on the rise, expansion and limitless promise of the internet. The World Wide Web. The point of no return. We are ON. Unchained. We are FREE.

An encabled tragedy. The mythological figure of Oedipus symbolizes modern man and his tragic fate. Oedipus is blind when he can still see and he only starts seeing when he physically blinds himself. He never succeeds in obtaining a central perspective on the world. In O_Rex the immersive experience is integrated within a classical theatre set-up.
Crash takes you on a delirious trip through the labyrinth of your own head. Your senses are captured and manipulated by computers and cameras, or are they not?
