Oude Western neighborhood in Rotterdam.
Brecht Hermans & Hans Rossman work together to merge their talents in theatre & visual arts by inviting residents of the Oude Western neighborhood to collectively draw on an object whilst sharing stories that Hermans documents.The project explores themes of togetherness, community and diversity. The location is ever-changing as it travels through 15 places of the neighborhood, this draws a connection through the community of Oude Western and highlights its social meeting spaces. The role of the audience is important in this project as they are participants as well as creators, their drawings and stories form the map of the neighborhood.

A group of acrobats engage an outdoor audience in what seems to be theatre or performance. Their various movements explore how we move through outdoor or public space. What is considered appropriate? The trio breakes rules in doing so by running back and forth, rotating and balancing each other, are they discussing how we must walk and why? The location of the city or town explains this as they walk, run, stroll and flip down public streets that are home to cafes and bars. The audience are fully engaged by the performers, showing no signs of participation except for being immersed in this experience; they move and follow the trio act like a school of fish, up and down the city streets.
