Aren’t the best things the ones you don’t plan? 

Or the situations that you witness by chance? 

Oh, I know! 

The moment when you’re so going to slip in sync with a random person on the street. But you don’t. You save it, elegantly. 

Maybe someone here has a birthday today?

These instants will never happen in theater. However, what if we attempted to go as near as possible to the unexpected sensation of a fortunate outcome?

Another gathering tries to find its way closer to provoking serendipitous situations. Serendipity refers to accidental events that lead to positive outcomes, and the key is to be able to recognize these moments.

The performance brings in movement, absurd as well as ordinary situations and spontaneous magic to enable the expression of what could happen when someone is open to random actions and observation of details potentially leading to serendipitous moments. 

The idea emerged from spontaneous moments in life. We are surrounded by so many systems and structures. Therefore, it is refreshing when a spontaneous moment emerges where it is not clear where the situation is going to lead. But then something happens that directs the path in such a way that one ends up somewhere unexpected. It often creates a strong feeling. I think these kinds of situations should be highlighted. From there initiated the thrive to make spontaneity and coincidences appear, give them a space to emerge.
