Special Winterparade Dec 19-20, 2014
Zuiderkerk, Amsterdam

This year's edition of the Winterparade, Yorick Heerkens of PIPS:lab will conduct and direct an interactive colour choir.

The WinterParade is the smaller indoor version of  theatre festival the Parade, which travels through the Netherlands each summer with its colorful theatre tents.

 

Despite the colder season, the winter edition is not less colorful, offering a wild mix of performances and interactive fun. The audience of 500 people will be seated at a giant table of 120 meters long, enjoying food  and diverse performances combined of theatre, dance, poetry, art, music and culinary delights, cooked by our chef André Amaro . Then last but not least, expect the all-time favorite Silent Disco. A perfect plan if you want to spend the festive season in a way that’s a bit different. The concept was originally conceived for the New Island Festival in New York by the Parade-founder Terts Brinkhoff.  Please note: performances are in Dutch.

 

Amsterdam: 19, 20, 22 t/m 28 december • Haarlem: 2 en 3 januari • Den Haag: 14 februari

Social Fiction is a trilogy wherein PIPS:lab gets recklessly stuck between theatre, cinema , painting , gaming and music. It is a glimpse of the future where all boundaries between realities are completely diffused. PIPS:lab brings you into an augmented state of confusion.

Here and now

Altered realities and digital representations can no longer be ignored in our daily lives. Started in the entertainment industries, virtual (and augmented) reality tools are now even used in life saving applications such as medical research. Documentaries and discussions about ‘real and not real ', privacy and the always-on society where the here and now no longer exists, are frequently in the news media. Almost every news platform has its own technology and media section nowadays. Dave Eggers wrote The Circle and recently HER was released, a film in which a person enters into a relationship with his ideal partner: its own customized operating system. And by the revelations about the NSA suddenly the whole world knew that secrets or confidentiality do not exist in the digital world.

With Social Fiction PIPS:lab contributes in it’s own way to the digital reali-Zeitgeist. They use the latest technology in combination with their own developed tools and software. As a theatre and arts collective, PIPS:lab sees it as its task to take the live audience to other dimensions and make them experience how we can design our own future.

Social Fiction 1 was created in 2013 and performed at Theaterfestival De Parade. Social Fiction 2 will première February 27, 2015 at Frascati Amsterdam. As Social Fiction is rather a process than a clearly defined production. We do previews, in-between performances, and blending shows in between the hard numbers. Not afraid to loose count. Are you?

PIPS:lab, Amsterdam



Social Fiction is a trilogy wherein PIPS:lab gets recklessly stuck between theatre, cinema , painting , gaming and music. It is a glimpse of the future where all boundaries between realities are completely diffused. PIPS:lab brings you into an augmented state of confusion.

After Social Fiction 1, where PIPS:lab explored the boundaries of online privacy, they now have entered the virtual space even further. Mankind is increasingly forced to relate to pre-programmed computer programs. Who does not follow, does not count.

The players are dominated by a ruthless computer they must obey. The audience witnesses the live recordings of a science fiction video in the form of an inscrutable choreography of two men and a camera, grimly looking for a galactic way out. The spectators hitch like virtual refugees in a spaceship and play an important role in this almost nostalgic trip in the future, as in any PIPS:lab show.

In Social Fiction PIPS:lab uses a motion capture system in combination with the self-invented Potator tools. These make it possible to paint in 3D with peels of reality. With the triptych Social Fiction PIPS:lab contributes in its own way to the digital reali-Zeitgeist.

 

“…I believe the show is much like a ballet, where the dance is the intricate and subtle

interactions between humans and technology.” [getdown.ca 20/11/2014]

 

“Imaginative, interactive, clever sci-fi from Amsterdam.” [YP Live Nationwide 21/11/2014]

 

“In the end, all the parts came together in an interesting blend of digital animation, performance art and music. To explain the process would be to spoil the fun, so I will only say that this show must be seen to be believed.” [getdown.ca 20/11/2014]

 

“An intriguing set blends pop art and the wonders of modern technology, while plenty of electronic music interludes force you to consider your own place in the digital realm.” [YP Live Nationwide 21/11/2014]

landelijke campagne



PIPS:lab staat ook op tegen kanker en werkte mee aan deze KWF campagne. Met onze lumasol techniek maakten vrijwilligers en kunstenaars lichtberichten voor het KWF. Na 4 dagen live painten in een loods in Amsterdam Noord, heeft onze ABB robot Stefke het overgenomen. In totaal zijn er meer dan 1800 lichtberichten gemaakt. 

Sta op tegen kanker en stuur een KWF Lichtbericht.

1 op de 3 mensen krijgt kanker. Kanker raakt ons dus allemaal. Laat zien voor wie jíj opstaat. Schrijf een bijzonder bericht voor een dierbare en laat weten dat je aan hem of haar denkt.

DieSpace 3.0 Oct 29-29, 2014
Trafó, Budapest [HUNGARY]



What do you want to do when you’re dead?

Hyves, Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, LinkedIn – it’s almost a full-time job keeping up with all these online communities, updating your profile, sending messages and uploading your latest best photos. And now tech-theatre group PiPS:lab wants us to join another one: DieSpace. There is one prerequisite though: you have to be dead to join. Because of the fast ‘greyification’ of our society, the number of people dying will be increasing rapidly. And dead people don’t have a place to socialize yet… PiPS:lab jumped at this great business opportunity and created DieSpace: “the first active internet community for the diseased”.

Each visitor of their show will get a free DieSpace light account to start out with. So from now on, there’s only one thing to fear after death: whether or not you’ll make enough friends on DieSpace. / Annelies Termeer

The proportional amount of elderly people (65+) in the world will increase dramatically in the near future. This cause of events is what PIPS:lab call Greyification. And in it they see an enormous possibility for commercial self-enrichment.

Thus they create DieSpace.nl: the first internet community for those in the Afterlife.

With granny’s skateboarding on walking frames, musical wheelchairs, many laptops, camera’s and light sensors PIPS:lab presents an interactive and song soaked show about life after death. 

You have a death wish but are hesitant to pursue your dream? With DieSpace you can leave your life and loved ones behind with complete peace of mind!

Co-produced by Melkweg-Paradiso Productiehuis

DieSpace is supported by the Fonds voor Amateurkunst en Podiumkunsten, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunsten, Prins Bernhard Cultuur Fonds and VSB Fonds

Aire d'Assevillers Sept 21, 2014
De Gele Pomp bij hotmamahot, Amsterdam Noord



[at this moment, in dutch only, sorry... will be translated soon]

Met Aire d'Assevillers brengt multimedia collectief PIPS:lab een hedendaagse versie van Elckerlijck. Een moralistische zedenpreek voor arm en rijk. Een 21e eeuws wagenspel met een multimedia kampeerbusje op een tankstation langs de franse snelweg, in een tekst van Don Duyns.

'In een maatschappij waar alles gerelateerd is aan geld, is een leven zonder geld niets waard' denkt Robbert, een vastgoedhandelaar die alles heeft verspeeld. Zijn bedrijf, zijn geld, zijn vrouw en kinderen is hij kwijt. Hij vertrekt in zijn BMW naar Frankrijk om zijn leven in stijl achter zich te laten. Op zijn tocht roept hij de hulp in van Otto, een oude schoolvriend met een terminale ziekte en een camper. Samen vertrekken ze naar het vakantiehuisje van Robbert in de Dordogne. De één om te sterven, de ander om nog één keer te leven. Als ze stoppen op Aire d’Assevillers ontmoeten zij Julie, die de reis een compleet nieuwe wending geeft.

Aire d'Assevillers is een theatrale road movie over de gevolgen van de crisis die nog altijd voelbaar zijn. Een verhaal over wanhoop, vergeving en verlossing. Een pleidooi voor een gewetensvol leven omdat we er maar één hebben.

[at this moment, in dutch only, sorry... will be translated soon]

Met Aire d'Assevillers brengt multimedia collectief PIPS:lab een hedendaagse versie van Elckerlijck. Een moralistische zedenpreek voor arm en rijk. Een 21e eeuws wagenspel met een multimedia kampeerbusje op een tankstation langs de franse snelweg, in een tekst van Don Duyns.

'In een maatschappij waar alles gerelateerd is aan geld, is een leven zonder geld niets waard' denkt Robbert, een vastgoedhandelaar die alles heeft verspeeld. Zijn bedrijf, zijn geld, zijn vrouw en kinderen is hij kwijt. Hij vertrekt in zijn BMW naar Frankrijk om zijn leven in stijl achter zich te laten. Op zijn tocht roept hij de hulp in van Otto, een oude schoolvriend met een terminale ziekte en een camper. Samen vertrekken ze naar het vakantiehuisje van Robbert in de Dordogne. De één om te sterven, de ander om nog één keer te leven. Als ze stoppen op Aire d’Assevillers ontmoeten zij Julie, die de reis een compleet nieuwe wending geeft.

Social Fiction 2 Sept 08, 2014
Moving Meetings, Amsterdam



Social Fiction is a trilogy wherein PIPS:lab gets recklessly stuck between theatre, cinema , painting , gaming and music. It is a glimpse of the future where all boundaries between realities are completely diffused. PIPS:lab brings you into an augmented state of confusion.

After Social Fiction 1, where PIPS:lab explored the boundaries of online privacy, they now have entered the virtual space even further. Mankind is increasingly forced to relate to pre-programmed computer programs. Who does not follow, does not count.

The players are dominated by a ruthless computer they must obey. The audience witnesses the live recordings of a science fiction video in the form of an inscrutable choreography of two men and a camera, grimly looking for a galactic way out. The spectators hitch like virtual refugees in a spaceship and play an important role in this almost nostalgic trip in the future, as in any PIPS:lab show.

In Social Fiction PIPS:lab uses a motion capture system in combination with the self-invented Potator tools. These make it possible to paint in 3D with peels of reality. With the triptych Social Fiction PIPS:lab contributes in its own way to the digital reali-Zeitgeist.

 

“…I believe the show is much like a ballet, where the dance is the intricate and subtle

interactions between humans and technology.” [getdown.ca 20/11/2014]

 

“Imaginative, interactive, clever sci-fi from Amsterdam.” [YP Live Nationwide 21/11/2014]

 

“In the end, all the parts came together in an interesting blend of digital animation, performance art and music. To explain the process would be to spoil the fun, so I will only say that this show must be seen to be believed.” [getdown.ca 20/11/2014]

 

“An intriguing set blends pop art and the wonders of modern technology, while plenty of electronic music interludes force you to consider your own place in the digital realm.” [YP Live Nationwide 21/11/2014]

DieSpace 3.0 June 07-07, 2014
Theaterszene Europe 2014, Cologne, Germany



What do you want to do when you’re dead?

Hyves, Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, LinkedIn – it’s almost a full-time job keeping up with all these online communities, updating your profile, sending messages and uploading your latest best photos. And now tech-theatre group PiPS:lab wants us to join another one: DieSpace. There is one prerequisite though: you have to be dead to join. Because of the fast ‘greyification’ of our society, the number of people dying will be increasing rapidly. And dead people don’t have a place to socialize yet… PiPS:lab jumped at this great business opportunity and created DieSpace: “the first active internet community for the diseased”.

Each visitor of their show will get a free DieSpace light account to start out with. So from now on, there’s only one thing to fear after death: whether or not you’ll make enough friends on DieSpace. / Annelies Termeer

The proportional amount of elderly people (65+) in the world will increase dramatically in the near future. This cause of events is what PIPS:lab call Greyification. And in it they see an enormous possibility for commercial self-enrichment.

Thus they create DieSpace.nl: the first internet community for those in the Afterlife.

With granny’s skateboarding on walking frames, musical wheelchairs, many laptops, camera’s and light sensors PIPS:lab presents an interactive and song soaked show about life after death. 

You have a death wish but are hesitant to pursue your dream? With DieSpace you can leave your life and loved ones behind with complete peace of mind!

Potator May 24, 2014
DEAF / Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam



The Potator is the latest invention of PIPS:lab. The Potator makes it possible to paint in 3D with visual peels of reality, by combining the qualities of a vegetable peeler with that of a brush. The handy tool scans everything that appaers in its visual range; objects, textures or backgrounds - thereby always aware of its own position. With the photographical strips the user of the Potator can paint  spatially or sculpt virtually. The visual output manifests itself as a photo or augmented reality: reality functions as paint and canvas at the same time. The Potator brings together painting, sculpting and movement, and challenges its users to shape reality…

Yvonne Jan 29, 2014
Theater ins Blau, Leiden



With little rituals Daan celebrates his love for Yvonne. He puts her in a doll house, covers the table with her dishes and wears her clothes. It's the little things that are important to him.

But in the outside world Daan misses this spell. Nobody sees Yvonne like he does. What Daan finds disturbing is that no one talks about their own domestic happiness, which Daan is sure the whole world is about.
 
To address this issue Daan employs the technological arsenal of his multi-media group PIPS: lab. A crazed rotary dryer, instantly remixed video clips, a laser show and much more. Meanwhile, he sings self-written evergreens like 'Sokkenbollen' and 'Ik doe graag de was voor jou'. Finally Daan even invites his musical friends to shout his love for the domestic from the rooftops.
'Yvonne' is a mercilessly performed charm offensive in the theatre. Daan van West directs the eyes of the audience inwards, to the love that dwells there.

Meanwhile, he sings self-written evergreens like 'Sokkenbollen' and 'Ik doe graag de was voor jou'. Finally Daan even invites his musical friends to shout his love for the domestic from the rooftops.
'Yvonne' is a mercilessly performed charm offensive in the theatre. Daan van West directs the eyes of the audience inwards, to the love that dwells there.

Potator Oct 26-27, 2013
24H Noord, locatie Overhoeks, Amsterdam



The Potator is the latest invention of PIPS:lab. The Potator makes it possible to paint in 3D with visual peels of reality, by combining the qualities of a vegetable peeler with that of a brush. The handy tool scans everything that appaers in its visual range; objects, textures or backgrounds - thereby always aware of its own position. With the photographical strips the user of the Potator can paint  spatially or sculpt virtually. The visual output manifests itself as a photo or augmented reality: reality functions as paint and canvas at the same time. The Potator brings together painting, sculpting and movement, and challenges its users to shape reality…

Half/half paintings Oct 11, 2013
TADAEX, Tehran IRAN

first halfhalf painting in PIPSlab

Together with Thomas Bratzke, we created the new art discipline half/half  paintings. These paintings are partly for real and partly in augmented reality. Looking at the painting you can see the craftmanship of the painter, if you keep your iPad in front of it, a second virtual layer appears. We can describe it, but you should actually see it for yourself! Check out the video in pics and media.

DieSpace 3.0 Sept 27-29, 2013
Beijing International Fringe Festival, Beijing, CHINA



What do you want to do when you’re dead?

Hyves, Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, LinkedIn – it’s almost a full-time job keeping up with all these online communities, updating your profile, sending messages and uploading your latest best photos. And now tech-theatre group PiPS:lab wants us to join another one: DieSpace. There is one prerequisite though: you have to be dead to join. Because of the fast ‘greyification’ of our society, the number of people dying will be increasing rapidly. And dead people don’t have a place to socialize yet… PiPS:lab jumped at this great business opportunity and created DieSpace: “the first active internet community for the diseased”.

Each visitor of their show will get a free DieSpace light account to start out with. So from now on, there’s only one thing to fear after death: whether or not you’ll make enough friends on DieSpace. / Annelies Termeer

The proportional amount of elderly people (65+) in the world will increase dramatically in the near future. This cause of events is what PIPS:lab call Greyification. And in it they see an enormous possibility for commercial self-enrichment.

Thus they create DieSpace.nl: the first internet community for those in the Afterlife.

With granny’s skateboarding on walking frames, musical wheelchairs, many laptops, camera’s and light sensors PIPS:lab presents an interactive and song soaked show about life after death. 

You have a death wish but are hesitant to pursue your dream? With DieSpace you can leave your life and loved ones behind with complete peace of mind!

DieSpace is supported by the Fonds voor Amateurkunst en Podiumkunsten, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunsten, Prins Bernhard Cultuur Fonds and VSB Fonds

The Haunted House is dark. The Haunted House is a confrontation with yourself. Much more can not be said without spoiling it. We can only warn. A visit to the Haunted House is an intelligent, psychological anxiety experience…

If you are not afraid of a life changing experience …

If you dare to lose complete control …

If you have the courage to get lost in your inner-self…

Social Fiction 1 Aug 09-13, 2013
Parade, Amsterdam

photo: Szilvi Toth

Social Fiction is a trilogy wherein PIPS:lab gets recklessly stuck between theatre, cinema , painting , gaming and music. It is a glimpse of the future where all boundaries between realities are completely diffused. PIPS:lab brings you into an augmented state of confusion.

Every day all social media ask us to provide a lot of input, also private information. And we give it. We give everything. Simply because we want to use these services to be able to share, tag and follow online. Like our friends. We loose most of our rights on this information – many times without knowing it. Let alone that we’re beware of the potential abuse.

In Social Fiction the personification of social media extorts information and even physical appearances from the performers and the audience. People are followed and scanned. Text messages get published and fall apart: seemingly meaningless, but forever saved and traceable. All the collected and constructed elements in the show are three dimensionally composed with our Potator tools in a motion capture installation. Social Fiction is a sequence of acts and actions filled with funky music and a unique solo on recorder. It results in a grand finale that breaks the boundaries between theatre, cinema and videogames.
