Teatr Brama invites to a theatrical co-production by actors from the Moon of Asia group and actors from Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium. The performance will take place on February 28 (Tuesday) at 7:00 pm at Rampa Kultura.
About the performance:
Remarkable performance explores the aftermath of war with young Korean actors and actors from Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium in Holstebro. AFTER WAR brings the claustrophobic world of war and human decay to the audience. To the time after a war, any war that was fought in a foreign country against an alien nation.Something sets of the mechanism of global war. One man’s death. A single shot fired. Rape. Setting a book on fire. Some simple mistake. A foolish act. Just a haircut. Something in the past that we just could’ve let go. East and west meet AFTER WAR. Two languages and two cultures with each of their own story. Through distorted images the audience is pulled into the silent terror of war, where killing for what you fight for is normality. AFTER WAR is based on the alienation on both sides of the battleground. We are drawn into a soldier’s nightmare, where the dead come alive, and reality is no longer the same. Dreams take over the day and memory becomes a ghost untamable and out of grasp. After war comes peace. But a peace with deprivation, guilt, and the search for meaning and forgiveness. AFTER WAR is part of a three-year (2019-2021) collaboration with the support of Asia Culture Center (ACC) of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea. From 2022 the Asia Culture Center Foundation and Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium are jointly distributing performances.
