THE YEAR OF THE HARE
Are we really looking for freedom?
The novel of Arto Paasiliinna meets object-theater with analogue and digital projection on stage
How does it feel to be ripped away from the life with which you are familiar at just a moment’s notice? A man and a hare dive together into a world full of light and colour, shadows and paper, and ultimately must answer the question of whether the freedom of one of them also means the freedom of the other.
With “The Year of the Hare”, the company mikro-kit and Alessandro Maggioni create a laboratory on stage, in which everything revolves around the power of encounter. With the means of shadow play and paper art, digital video techniques and analogue live projections, images are created, telling of the research and longing for freedom, but also of the question of how far we can let ourselves go with someone else, and how far the common path can lead us.
