Ode to the attempt is a light and funny performance about making a show. When an artist creates something, he moves through different stages. Jan Martens wants to give those stages – which usually never see the light of day – a new life. While talking and dancing, he shows a self-portrait and touches upon themes such as authenticity, manipulations, perfectionism, humour and melancholy. In this solo, Martens provides insight in his way of working and his way of living and invites you to see inside his head and his computer.
