Wednesday Performance:

Lena Simic: Masha Serghyeevna

Wednesday, 10th of March 2010 at 19.30 (approx.. 60 min.)

Lena Simic’s performance ’Masha Serghyeevna’ has Anton Tjekhov’s classical theatre piece ’Three Sisters’ as its starting point.

In her solo performance Simic explores the middle child Masha’s character and through her touches upon a number of aspects of war concerning sexual politics and existentiality. The exploration takes place in the interesting shift between roles and through incorporation of Eastern European conflicts and wars in the 20th Century from the October Revolution in Russia in 1917 until the Balkan Wars in the 1990’s.

The performance is in English

Ulla Hvejsel: Cabaret of War #4 - The End

Wednesday, 17th of March 2010 at 19.30 (approx.. 30 min.)

’Cabaret of War’ is a series of stagings of a considerable collection of jokes from war films. Good and bad, heroic and disillusioned, American and anti-American, historical and present. In short the absurdity of the stream of war information is uncovered. For CRW Ulla Hvejsel will stage “The Retreat” from the war, and thus mark the ending of this series of war cabarets, which she has been performing over the last couple of years. She may even sing the Song for Praise of Foolishness at this performance.

The performance is in English and Danish.
