AN ETERNAL PIECE ON LOVE AND THE LACK OF IT / The Professional Amateurs (Reykjavík)


  • Borgarleikhúsið Listabraut Reykjavík, Capital Region Iceland

An Eternal Piece on Love and the Lack of it, where is god?

In the ETERNAL PIECE ON LOVE AND THE LACK OF IT the Professional Amateurs invite the audience to think about love. The show has the form of a ceremony where illusion gives way to knowledge and the theatre come alive in the mind of the audience. The work is based on requested letters dealing with love in life, expectations, disappointment, heat and cold, the beginning and the end.

The collective The Professional Amateurs was founded in May 2005, a group of established artists interested in pushing borders and making theatre that is reflective by nature. The Professional Amateurs offer their audience progressive theatre free and independent in process, form and content. They neither regard their performances as entertainment nor a convenient product but rather as a dialog between actors and audience about relevant issues concerning the human nature and until this day have not accepted any admission fees. A retrospective of the collective´s work will be on display as part of LÓKAL and RDF

ÓDAUÐLEGT VERK UM ÁST OG ÁSTLEYSI hvar er guð? / Áhugaleikhús atvinnumanna

Nýjasta verkefni Áhugaleikhúss atvinnumanna í röð ódauðlegra verka fjallar um ástina. Sýningin er eins konar athöfn þar sem sannleikurinn er hafinn upp á stall, blekkingin verður að víkja og leikhúsið lifnar við í huga áhorfandans. Verkið er byggt á innsendum bréfum sem fjalla um ástina í lífinu, væntingar, vonbrigði, hita og kulda, upphaf og endi.
