Substantially more than simple performance documentation, Serge Onnen’s DVD and book Ombromanie knits together haunting images from performances in which the band Oorbeek plays inside a giant shadow puppet theater constructed using a gazebo in an Amsterdam park. The accompanying booklet with stills from the DVD was made on a Ricoh Color Copy Printer on heavy watercolor paper. Additional material from a Berlin performance. Numbered.
