BLAAS

In 2013 Cocky Eek created together with Boukje Schweigman, Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti and Jochem van Tol the timeless piece BLAAS, which is still on the roll and called by the audience and press as wonderous, dazzling and life-affirming. Blaas is a production of Schweigman&

about BLAAS
Blaas plays with the space around us, it plays with the inside and outside world. Where does our inner world stop and where does the outside world begin? There is continuous interaction between ourselves and our environment. Outside is inside and inside is outside. The question 'where am I' is therefore perhaps more important than the question
'who am I'.

Playing with the boundaries of physical space, this wordless piece of visual theater creates a mysterious and disorientating world for the spectator - offering a new perspective on everyday reality.

"Beginning as a fashion designer, Cocky Eek's designs for the body grew into architectural works. Her designs and their carrier together form a new entity that transcends the human dimension"

Boukje Schweigman: "When I saw Cocky's work, I immediately felt a kinship, which, like me, examines how the human body relates to the space around it, disorienting its works, appealing to the imagination, evoking a physical response and asking questions about how and where I am going in this wonderful world."

the press about BLAAS
"Steeds probeert Schweigman het publiek mee te nemen over fysieke/mentale grenzen heen. In BLAAS gaat het concreet over de grens tussen een ruimtelijk binnen en buiten, op intermenselijk niveau over de grens tussen het zelf en de ander. In beide dimensies veroorzaakt BLAAS, met minimale middelen, niet minder dan een wonder". De Morgen, Evelynne Coussens , 1 aug 2013

" In de even prettige als angstaanjagende ruimte die Schweigman& met beweging, licht en geluid leven inblazen draait de fantasie van de toeschouwwer overuren. Trouw *****, Robbert van Heuven, 3 augustes 2013.

Since 2013 Cocky Eek collaborates with the wonderfull group SCHWEIGMAN& known for their poetic, non verbal, theatrical pieces in which the physical body in space always forms a departure of the work. Together they created the pieces BLAAS (2013), ERF (2014) and CURVE (2015) and LANDING SITES (2017)
