The Knife



HD video with stereo sound, 4 min., seamless loop

The Knife is a play in which two simple puppets buy a knife that they soon get in a box by mail. With the help of simple optical illusions, the characters become alive and may seem to move by themselves.

    ”How should we get the knife out of the box if it is in the box and we can’t use the knife?” They wonder.

    In line with suggestions to solve the problem, they concern serious questions about guinea pigs, scissors, crime and integrity. Discussion and gagging traces and becomes an outlet for their own and others’ disappointments and failures. And what was the purpose of getting a knife from the start?
