Description

Based on a true story... A mother who is continuously compelled to rebuild her life based on lies. A daughter who is trying to understand the mother's motives.

In the form of a staged investigation into the mother's past and the fundamentals of dramatic storytelling, the company sequentially peels the layers off the mother's organised series of lies by restaging her story time after time: do the layers conceal a kind heart or rotten core?

One of the beauties of Fringe theatre is the willingness to take risks and experiment with form. In that spirit, Forestille / Vorstellen's form of abstract deconstructive theatre toys with the concept of a play until it becomes almost a dramaturgical art installation.Beginning with Anne Elmholt lying flat on the...
