Description

Body – Oppression – Friendship

Expressions like “My hands are tied” or “I’m up to my neck in this”, indicate just how much we link many experiences to our physical body. “Your body is a temple”, says the bible. The big question is what happens to us, when we no longer posses the control of our own bodies – when our country forces us to go to war, when we are wrongfully put in prison, made slaves or forced to carry children to a husband we did not choose?

The scenario is about two best friends who are pushed apart. They both enter a new life situation where they lose their freedom, and the control over their own body. The story is set in three acts, from a farewell to a reunion.
To tell this story the scenario has both the two characters and the helpers. The helpers symbolize the losing of control of your body. They hold back, carry, push, pull or put pressure in such a way that the emotional experience and expressions are strengthened by the physical sensations created. The players will take turns as these roles.

Played at
