Edit Kaldor naar SICK! Festival 2015
door: The Basement
Thursday’s child has far to go…
Three teenagers want to talk about something they have no words for. They lead each spectator through memories of his or her own youth, but gradually the usual images of childhood are replaced by images connected to the experience of neglect and abuse. Scientific representations of what happens in the body and the brain during abuse are woven in with subjective experiences, fantasies and dreams. How close can you come to the experience of another person? Can we ever really understand?
Edit Kaldor is recognised internationally as a unique voice in the contemporary theatre landscape. She combines conceptually strong forms rarely seen in theatre with a personal approach to profound issues of life and death. Her pieces convey the inner experience, the emotional and thought processes of often marginal or isolated individuals in today’s hectic world. Kaldor mixes documentary and fictional elements in her work. She works mostly with nonprofessional performers and often integrates in her work the use of various digital media in a sophisticated but straightforward way.
