Your Majesties
  • Edinburgh Fringe

In the award-winning performance of Your Majesties, Navaridas and Deutinger reenact Barack Obama's Nobel lecture, held at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo in 2009. Performer Alex Deutinger delivers the US Presidents legendary speech while behind the audience, Marta Navaridas pulls the strings " manipulating and guiding the politicians movements with invisible strings as a gesturing puppeteer. The president's lecture is revived and a piece of world history updated while the techniques of political rhetoric are laid bare in surprisingly clear, engagingly simple fashion. A fascinating dance performance about war, peace and hope.
