In BAS. BOG. examines the basics, the bass line, the keynote of life.

What does a human being need to know in order to live? What is our basic knowledge and who actually decides what it should be? What do we really want to know? What are the most important lessons learned and what is knowledge really?

BAS.


All the capital cities of the world.
All the parts of a bicycle.
All the meanings of the word 'nothing'.
How bats actually communicate with each other. And trees.
The root of 144.
The battle of Waterloo.
How the swelling body works as well as the conjugation of être et avoir and why you should speak with two words.
Why does the earth revolve around the sun and who here knows what started the war?
Why? Warum! Again!
Shut up! And say after me: Mit, nach, bei, seit, von, zu, aus!

By questioning many different young people and adults, BOG. searches for what this existence is all about for us. BOG. creates a linguistic, musical theatre performance like a pop concert, sawing at the chair legs of "that which you are supposed to know". BAS. challenges you to question your own basic knowledge and think for yourself about what really matters.
