On stage is a box with hatches and doors. It can be the box where the cat is locked up or an experimental chamber. The chamber is populated by a group of experimenters / artists, trying to conduct research into immeasurable theories. Schrödinger is about thought experiments, cats, René Magritte, love, time, mathematics, observations, truth lies and alcohol. In 1933 Erwin Schrodinger won the Nobel Prize for his contribution to Quantum Mechanics. He theorized a box in which a cat exists as living and dead at the same time. In 1998 Reckless Sleepers built that box – and now over a decade later, they are climbing back inside In one of the company’s most celebrated performance pieces the impossible is probable: truth and illusion are inseparable.
