Krien Jozeph & Merante Tamar present

unique avant-garde performances and events with a strong poetic signature, aiming to inspire and amaze, to liberate and put our shared Origins into perspective.

With a background and mutual interest in hermetic philosophy, psychology and the arts Krien Jozeph & Merante Tamar take the audience on a journey,
exploring mythology, metaphysics and science through music, performance art
and poetry…

in search of the miraculous.



Origins: Krien Jozeph & Merante Tamar

With Origins we explore ancient creation myths of the places we visit around the world. We rewrite the stories to make forlorn prose and poetry comprehensive to a wider audience, re-introducing old writers and philosophers to our crowd through electronic music, song and storytelling.

The performance sheds light on scientific theorems and pseudoscientific contemplations of past and recent times that endeavour to
translate these mythical metaphors of the creation myth into a scientific language.

We then take the audience on the road to awe with poetry, song, dance and performance art, speaking directly to the subconscious, freeing mind & spirit.

Beautiful costumed characters support the story throughout the performance and express the various phases of the experience.




The Road to Awe

Origins can be tailored to work for any setting; clubs, festivals, a museum or gallery as well as more remote settings such as a forest or a beach.

The musical landscape can vary from ambient music to classical or from eclectic world music to slow and progressive techno and deep house. We create our stories depending on the occasion, geographical location and time of the year.

Origins can be experienced in various ways: A DJ set typically last 2 to 5 hours, However, we can also perform Origins as an opening ceremony, poetical performance intermezzo, dinner concept or avant-garde theatre play.

We love to host areas, dinners and party nights

and have art directed and organized cutting-edge events around the world, working together with talented artists, creating unforgettable experiences!
