DE ELSKENDE – DDSKS
FREE FROM SHAKESPEARE’S “A Midsummer Night’s Dream ” – 7 new acting talents from Odense Teater present the project “The Lovers” in an imagined universe where everything is possible.Each player evokes a multiplicity of beings – always a different one in each new moment – always in contact with another. The staging is a game where text and movement, sound and silence, gender and identity, dream and reality flow together between improvisation and arrangement. The performance is the result of the third year of “Dramatic Immersion” – a 6-week devising course led by Marion Reuter. Visual collaboration in August and September with actor and director Marion Reuter.
