Frascati presents Utopia/Dystopia


Frascati International presents Utopia/Dystopia, a programme made up of Dutch and international productions in which theatre-makers explicitly relate to our times. They speak out in an attempt to create order in a world from which the big ideologies have disappeared. You could call it documentary theatre in which the personal and the political meet.
Between October 27 and 31st this series of apocalyptic world views is staged. Whether this focuses on the fall of the Berlin Wall, the political situation in Beirut or the rise of a ‘liveability crisis’ in the Dutch town of Venlo; the productions that make up Utopia/Dystopia are all in search of ways to relate to (lack of) ideology.
Staalvilla resident Marjolijn van Heemstra, in collaboration with Julie Van den Berghe, contributs with 2012. The play is part of the After the Fall: Europe after 1989 theater project initiated by the Goethe Institute. Check the trailer right here…

Other contributions will be Void Story (trailer) by Tim Etchells – Forced Entertainment; 1: SONGS by Nicole Beutler; Theater with dirty feet by Rabih Mroué and Venlo by the Wunderbaum Collective.
