Up to Nature

united sorry/Frans Poelstra & Robert Steijn - Green Conversations/L’après-midi des faunes, or size matters!

The duo united sorry continues its year-long project Green Conversations as part of Up to Nature and is deeply burying itself in the woods around the Vogeltennwiese. Inspired by Vaslav Nijinsky’s ballet solo classic L’après-midi d’un faune, which tells of a faun’s erotic desires, Poelstra & Steijn will be relocating this mythical scenario from the stage out into nature, transforming themselves into horny mythical beings in leather pants. Equipped with oversized phalli, the two performers will be speaking with and answering questions from the audience – they shy away neither from questions about form or size, nor from brief dances or interludes with panpipes. As embodiments of eroticism and life’s sexual energy, united sorry will be providing an intensive experience of the surrounding nature.
