Two lighthouses about half a kilometre apart communicate with each other through two plays performed by two performers apposite of each other.
A collaboration between artists Janne Schipper and Brigitte Louter.
AN INTERACTION BETWEEN THREE PROTAGONISTS (Janne Schipper)
A PLAY TO BE PERFORMED BY CHILDREN, AGED BETWEEN 6 AND 7, IN 3 ACTS (Brigitte Louter)

AN INTERACTION BETWEEN THREE PROTAGONISTS
"The Mimic", "The Model" and "The Operator" form the basic structure from which the characters' monologues develop. Through reflection, absorption and appropriation -copying-, the notion of a fragmented personal identity instead of being a solid one is reflected upon. A wariness towards the notion of authenticity and repetition.
The characters are named after appropriation-behaviour in the plant- and insect world in order to survive.
