STRAINER

with Glimt (Denmark)

A physical and wordless performance, fusing together physical theatre, contemporary circus, acrobatics and music, based on the complex social rules that make it so difficult to be human and have to navigate in the mercurial society of the 21st century.

STRAINER is a hardcore physical performance about the complex social rules, we try to navigate through. The three internationally renowned performers work in the intersection between several physical performance disciplines, and fuse together visual theatre, contemporary circus, acrobatics and contemporary dance.

STRAINER is about trying to move through modern and swiftly mutable world. About decoding the complex social rules between strangers, friends, colleagues, lovers and family. About being on the outside and dreaming about being let in. About disappointment and success, anger and reconciliation, desperation and harmony.

In the reality of the 21st century, with internet, social media and a growing exchange between cultures, the social rules are more complex than ever before, while our brains are more or less the same as they were around 74,000 years ago. Brains, which are powering through like high speed trains to decode and interpret the impressions we are bombarded by.

What happens when the rules become so advanced, our brains can no longer keep up? What happens when we are put under the strain of living up to the limits we've imposed on ourselves and each other, and are struck by the consequences of an extremely complex society?

 

STRAINER is a co-produktion by GLiMT, Limfjordsteatret and Vendsyssel Teater.
