~aarsvaders

Een gloednieuwe theaterinstallatie van PIPS:lab. Waar de PIPS:mannen op eigen, pipsy wijze vertellen, zingen en beelden laten zien over vaderschap.

Vijf maanden, vier PIPS:mannen met zonen van drie, twee generaties, één experiment. Iedere seconde van de PIPS:kinderen wordt vastgelegd, vanuit elk mogelijk standpunt. Eén witte kooi, 19 camera’s, 40 microfoons, 45.000 Watt aan licht. Tien terabytes kind: de vaders missen geen moment.

Welke invloed heeft een vader, welke rol, welke verantwoordelijkheid? En welke database?

Als kind van drie kun je duizend keer naar hetzelfde verhaaltje luisteren. Als kind van drie ontbreekt het je aan motorische finesse. Als kind van drie hebben plastic dinosaurussen nog echt eten nodig. Zijn er dagen waarop ik geen moment aan hem heb gedacht? Betrap ik mezelf er steeds vaker op dat ik doe alsof hij een hond is?  

Opvoeden is als een laboratorium; het is een voortdurend experiment. PIPS:lab zoekt met ‘~aarsvaders’ de technologische en pedagogisch verantwoorde grenzen van hun vaderschap op.

Potator performance

With our Potator performance we let the audience experiment themselves with PIPS:lab's tools and technology. It's an interactive installation where motion capture and our own designed potator tools are combined. The potator tools combine the qualities of a peeler with those of a brush and make it possible to paint in 3D with virtual peels of reality. Meanwhile it uses scans of everything that appears in its visual range; from textiles, to objects and backgrounds. These are used as paint. The visual output manifests itself as an augmented reality that is directly beamed on a screen. Besides that there is also one pair of oculus rift virtual reality glasses, that make it possible for a person to walk through their own created 3D painted world. Reality functions as paint and canvas at the same time.

Shadows in the Cloud - shortcut

For the touring theatre festival de Parade PIPS:lab is making a special shortcut of the second part of the Social Fiction trilogy: Shadows in the Cloud (4**** in Theaterkrant).

In a time where we are forced to relate ourselves to preprogrammed computerprograms, and we thoughtless park our digital possessions on a virtual cloud, PIPS:lab takes us on a journey through the Cloud. With the audience in the leading part, and a social operating system as the director, this journey is being filmed. The end result however, is always different then we remembered...

Our mission is simple. Our technique isn't.

Social Fiction 1
The Lands Of Calibration

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.

Social Fiction 2
Shadows in the Cloud [premiere 27/02 Frascati]

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.

We are increasingly forced to relate to pre-programmed computer programs. Who does not follow, does not count.

In Shadows in the Cloud the performers and audience are jointly dominated by a social operating system, called Terence. He promises us everything we ever dreamt of. We just have to follow his exact instructions. The fearless cybernauts of PIPS:lab will test this new operating system on you, so eventually we can all escape from daily reality through a galactic gateway.

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]

Social Fiction

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?


Aire d'Assevillers

[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.

Aire d’Asssevillers is een PIPS:lab productie van Thijs de Wit i.s.m. Andreas Scharfenberg

DieSpace 3.0

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

Oneseconds en PIPS:lab present: HET SPOOKHUIS [THE HAUNTED HOUSE]

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…

Yvonne

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.

The Washing Powder Conspiracy

The Washing Powder Conspiracy is PIPS:lab’s first grand multi-media theatrical concert. The emphasis lies on live music – which miraculously comes out of flat irons, old washing machines and laundry baskets. A variety of songs connected to the overall theme: washing powder, as well as visuals and absurd scenes are created live. Of course, earlier recorded video material makes a reshuffled, mixed, pulled out of context and musically conductible come-back later in the show. Meanwhile, PIPS:lab casually flirts with themes like democracy, capitalism, commercials and war.
 
In the Washing Powder Conspiracy PIPS:lab conquer their ultimate challenge: to edit their video material live in such a way that they gain the same freedom as musicians on a stage. The Washing Powder Conspiracy is a well stirred melting pot of music, technology and drama – and that’s quite an achievement in theatre land.

Archie and the bees

In this show PIPS:lab displays its futuristic character by means of a new theatrical concert, in which they link their primary colours red, green and blue to the primary elements of rhythm: kick, snare and hi-hat. Visuals transform into sound. A light sabre drawing or the colours in the audience serve a musical basis to which PIPS:lab improvise and amaze with their instruments: the bashblender, the grinder and the LCDC videoguitar. After ten virtuous years of ego conflicts within inventors collective PIPS:lab, member Daan van West decided to appoint himself an A-status within the group by making the rest of the group B-status members. In his initially everlasting spirit of goodness he upholds respect for the name PIPS:lab and will only change its name to ARCHIE (large) & the Bees (tiny), in two months time. Daniel ‘Archie’ van West, a fanatic supporter of Goethe’s colour theory, has since banned the colours CMYK in his first decree. Will the new caste system in PIPS:lab finally produce anything worthwhile?

Lumasol Live

Lumalive is a visual show where we draw with light and create stunning visuals again following the PIPS:lab philosophy of no pre-recorded material and where all the technical manipulation is done live on stage. For these performances PIPS:lab create a great and musically inspired show, however we always end the set by handing out lights and letting the audience draw for a while to create the visuals. Normally these shows are combined with our own DJ's from Rednosedistrikt, but we could also collaborate with local DJ's.
