Shadowland

A monologue for three dancers

Shadowland is about love. And love’s shadow.
A girl has been institutionalised. She has assaulted a person.
A person who said, ”I love you”.

And afterwards – when the other class mates came in and caught them – he said, “I don’t love you”.
You’re a slut. No one gets to call her a slut.
She got her revenge. In her own way.
She wasn’t alone when she avenged herself.
The shadow was with her. It was the shadow that talked her into revenge.
Now she is in a place where she doesn’t cast a shadow.

The light in the institution is so bright. Almost like a burning sun.
Nevertheless she finds her shadow and allows herself to be consumed again, so she can tell us her story.
About love. And love’s shadow.

TEASER AND FULL LENGTH DOCUMENTATION

FROM THE REVIEWS
”…the dancers convincingly capture the age of passage from child to adult, from silly bean to party animal, congenially supported by Rumpistol’s steaming sound scenography.”
Lise Gaardsdal, Politiken, 31.01.2017

”All in all a very well crafted dance performance and definitely worth a visit! A story about the shadow side of love.”
Amalie Sloth de Fine Licht, ungtteaterblod.dk, 29.01.2017

”A performance that takes you back to youth’s first innocent kisses and overwhelming emotions using the language of the body and the strong power of words.”
Ann-Katrine Myrup Andersen, akultur.dk, 29.01.2017
