Things are what they are until they cease to be.
An empty van is still a van if it is full of boxes.
A box is a curious thing, it does not exist alone.
An empty van is only funny as a possibility to fill up … to the top.
From the Arabic al-qubbah and the architectural term alcove, which refers to a recess in a room, a hidden place in a wall, usually covered up.
The Qubim puppet show travels to Berger in Norway for performances on the 7th and 8th of October, at 11 a.m. and 12 p.m., respectively, as part of the Figur i Fossekleiva Festival. Still at the Festival, the Fandanga Troupe challenges the creation of functional and expressive puppets from a variety of commonly used objects in a workshop on the 10th and 11th of October. All the schedule and information are at the festival link.
