In the beginning there was nothing 
and then that too exploded

In MULTIVERSE, Louis Vanhaverbeke (BE) is a multipurpose disk jockey. The beat is set through round speakers, but Vanhaverbeke is not a real rapper. He bounces arguments around, rips lyrics apart, collapses ideas into building sets. He pumps up the best hits, brushes off references until those ideas start to stutter, and we are swept into a brand-new dimension.

As he walks and sings, a living colour wheel emerges, arranged in gradations between statement and play. For the rest, the tool kit includes plastic buckets, frisbees, kitchen utensils and lots of other stuff. Can he escape from this tsunami of objects and words? Will he be sucked into all this mess? Or are these the perfect tools to help him stay with the flow? 

"The pluck is stuck, you idiot! 

  • No, that's called scratching, dumbo."
