Stilleben

a theatre play for 3 women
and 40 green transportation boxes

About

Stilleben is a theater play for 3 women and 40 green transportation boxes. An ingenious and minimalistic puzzle.

For one hour the actresses build successive compositions on stage. Mysterious objects emphasize an ongoing alienation, a tension between realism and abstraction.

In a space splendidly designed by Inge Roseboom, WorsøeProduksjoner has gathered artists from different disiplines in a direction of Kenneth Homstad. The result is an unsettling yet humourous performance where both the spectator and the location play a significant role.

Stilleben reflects on everyday life and imagination as a bare necessity.
