Uncanny You | Performance & Discussion

  • Arts Letters & Numbers 1543 Burden Lake Road Averill Park, NY, 12018 United States (map)

This Sunday, we invite you to experience the work in progress by our brilliant artists in residence Ann Mirjam Vaikla and Lærke Grøntved. Their theatre performance “Uncanny You” is co-produced by Kanuti Gildi SAAL in Tallinn, Estonia where it will premiere in September 2017. The project is also supported by Teater Momentum in Denmark and TOU Scene in Norway.

"We see “uncanniness” as a counterweight to traditional values, such as lightness, visibility, the known - we are curious to explore disturbance in our perception: grotesque and dark situations, spaces and characters while studying survival strategies of insects, military parades of different countries, bullshit speaking of weather or politics and closed territories in embassies."

Please come and join us on Sunday, at 1pm at the Barn where they have been working intensively through out the week. The performative sharing will be followed by a discussion, and they look forward to hear your thoughts around the subject “uncanniness” !
