Hyperion

Hyperion

'Being called a Greek feels like being bound with a dog collar.' In a bunker on a Greek island, a conscript keeps watch. Alone. His mission: to guard the border for 72 hours. Three days later, no one shows up: no replacement, no pick-up, no one. What now? Blending physical theatre, text, original music and film, Hyperion re-visits Hölderlin’s work written in an age of revolutions. A performance looking for its language as Hyperion looks for a home and questions our sense of belonging. A show Continue Reading

When there is no longer an authority to rebel against, these buffoonish buccaneers turn on one another, each vying for power.

Torn Apart – By Romeo and Juliet

Torn Apart – By Romeo and Juliet

Memories are reborn, they are created, they make up the narrative of young people who bring to the scene various perspectives on childhood, pain, homesickness, loss, affective relations and extreme passions now idealised, now lived by them or by their parents – themes that revolve around and cross the central theme of the show: love. These stories intersect with the classic Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, presenting a contemporary look from this lyric tragedy that goes through the Continue Reading
