Escape

Teater Bæst (DK)
A site-specific sound- and performance installation.

 

FLUGT explores the archetypal tale of personal escape. Escape as a concept, escape as a crossing of national borders, or escape from oneself.

“I’m fucking indifferent to refugee crisis and refugee policies. I am because I’m detached. I do not have the opportunity to directly influence the society I should feel I am a part of.

That generates a deep apathy. And I don’t think I’m the only one … Maybe this is the real crisis: the paralyzing apathy we feel in relation to all the major issues that exist in our society and the world we are a part of.

Reality has become so unbearable that we have to escape from it, in order to be able to live with ourselves.“

Eja Due, artistic director of Teater BÆST.

Age: From 14 years
Duration: 80 min.

Info: This performance is on the beach and not suited for wheelchairs etc.
