An Aarhus 2017 Commission
Presented by Aarhus Theatre
When everything is said and done, what is fiction and what is reality? Private secrets and deep psychological dramas are uncovered and explored as actors rehearse the lines of a play. Slowly the real world dissolves and is gathered into the illusions of the theatre. A performance about a performance, PREMIERE enters the deepest secrets of the theatre to explore the fear of
failing as an actor; the hunger for love from the audience; the loneliness when the curtain falls.
The audience follows this extraordinary experiment and special theatrical experience. The performance begins behind the scenes, in the makeup room and the hallways of Aarhus Theatre. The audience remains with the play until the applause has faded into the darkness of the empty seats.
This groundbreaking theatrical experiment is directed by Sargun Oshana and written by Magnus Iuel Berg. Both graduated in the spring of 2016 from Den Danske Scenekunstskole and this performance at Aarhus Theatre is their debut.
