UNCANNY YOU

2017
  • Ann Mirjam Vaikla
  • Lærke Grøntved

Concept and direction: Ann Mirjam Vaikla and Lærke Grøntved

Co-producer: Kanuti Gildi SAAL

Premiere: October 2017

“Uncanny You” is a visual theatre performance borrowing elements from installative art forms. It investigates the sensation of the “uncanny” in relation to the expectable war situation in the world and the survival strategies of laughter and mimicry. Two performers, scenographer, costume designer and videographer will dig into the times of Trump’s rhetorics, right-wing forces in Europe, declining democracy, growing nationalism and populism throughout residencies in New York, Norway and Estonia. Created material will be turned into a holistic performance which will premiere at Kanuti Gildi SAAL in Tallinn, Estonia in October 2017.
