Under the directorial guidance of Gabriela Carrizo, members of Peeping Tom and the Residenztheater ensemble (Munich, DE) join forces for a brand new production called The Land. A unique work in true Peeping Tom style, conceived for the stage of the Cuvilliéstheater.
'The Land' plunges its audience into a world in which the loss of the self stands central. The "game" commences with a village community finding itself in the midst of a miniature landscape. A story rich in paradoxes unravels, revolving around the notions of inconsistency and alienation, proximity and distance whilst toying with the way we perceive the world around us. 'The Land' is that melancholical place which reminds us of the fact that we have gone astray. Highlighting the power of make believe, combined with a deliberate blindness to everyday absurdities, the distinction between reality and fiction becomes blurry. A cruel and pictorial tale unfolds itself in the middle of nature. This is dance theatre with mystical qualities to it, in which a grotesque reality blends into surreal forms of imagery depicting different levels of yearning.
The Land is a production of Residenztheater in collaboration with Peeping Tom. It can also be seen on May 20 and 21 2015, after which it will be held on the repertoire of the theater, and performed on a regular basis.
World premiere : May 8 - 9 - 11, 2015, Cuvilliéstheater, in the frame of international Dance 2015 festival (Munich, DE).
