Event description

Description

A touching, visually enchanting and yet thought-provoking all-female performance, The Wallpaper deals with the perception of “madness” and mental health issues. By playing with the fine line between reality and hallucination, it explores the feeling of seclusion through myths and stories, such as Charlotte Perkins' The Yellow Wallpaper, the Greek Myth of Ariadne and the Bluebeard legend. This devised piece combines contemporary dance and physical theatre with live music performed by a violinist in the attempt to immerse the audience in the characters’ claustrophobic world. The latter, who seem to have escaped from their own tales are drawn to one another by their experience of confinement.

“ It is the strangest yellow, that wallpaper! It makes me think of all the yellow things I ever saw - not beautiful lines like buttercups, but old foul, bad yellow things.
(…) The front pattern does move - and no wonder! The woman behind shakes it! “ Charlotte Perkins.
