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.

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

”In total a really well made dance performance, that is definitely worth watching! A story about the darker side of love.”
-Amalie Sloth de Fine Licht, ungtteaterblod.dk, 29.01.2017

”A performance that by combining the bodily language of dancing and the power of the words drags you back to youth’s first innocent kiss and the overwhelmingly strong emotions.” 
-Ann-Katrine Myrup Andersen, akultur.dk, 29.01.2017
