In residence: Maxim Storms

In Storm’s new physical solo he (de)constructs the individual who survives in today’s ‘we-want-more’ society on speed. Maxim does this in his (famed) grotesque playing style and (characteristic and unique) rhythmic language constructions. He creates a cramped universe where one last soul stubbornly continues to model existence. Using dilapidated construction and fatal repairs, the character attempts to achieve the indeterminate goal.

In his previous solo Brother Blue, Storms designed an unreliable landscape in which the protagonist loses his tail. In NUGGETS he goes one step further and the main character radically remodels the remains of his existence. In all his work, Maxim Storms gives voice to characters who test or defy ‘the impossibility’. NUGGETS will be a new stage in that quest for philosophical wounds.
