As part of Dublin Theatre Festival, Verk Produksjoner presents
Maybe it is about tabula rasa, about starting over. Maybe it is about the sensation of being on a sinking ship.
There is a sneaking feeling that we have constructed a society which is based on a set of expectations for the future that turn out to be false and life-threatening.
Could it be that the ruling system is running at a hazardous speed, and nobody knows how to turn the ship around?
With this as a backdrop, we have embarked on a journey of gathering stories. We have had countless discussions, we have wandered, we have told, we have recorded, collected, retold and let our minds spin.
We have banged our heads against the wall, looked sideways, we have read into the shadows and we have attempted to give a voice to the quiet reverberations.
Maybe it is about conjuring up a ghost, about evoking the unfamiliar.
Verk Produksjoner are known for their epic and vaudevillesque style of acting with satirical and political undertones that changes swiftly between performance, storytelling and improvisation.
In this, their newest work, they look ahead from a year of revolution and unrest into our uncertain future.
