I’M PURPLE, BITCH – a new show opening in February

I’M PURPLE, BITCH

SWE:

En föreställning för unga om könsroller baserad på undersökningen Läget – Liv och Hälsa Ung i Västmanlands län.

Föreställningen handlar om hur vi lägger olika förväntningar på kvinnor och män, och hur det påverkar oss. Pjäsen tar sitt avstamp från verkliga människor och händelser, allt från Miley Cyrus och Anton Hysén till Drottning Kristina. Det är en tematisk pjäs som består av en rad olika scener/kapitel där de tre aktörerna i pjäsen behandlar tematiken på olika sätt. Vi ämnar att reflektera de ungas värld som den är, med hjälp av just statistiken vi tagit del av och de kompletterande undersökningarna som gjorts.

Skriven av Amanda Högberg, Regi Christopher Lehman, Scenografi och kostym Alex Berry Ljus Design Guillaume Pissembon Skådespelare  Maria SendowHanna Björck och Christopher Sivertsen

Målgrupp: 13-19 vi behöver en  we 6x6m scen. I’m Purple, Bitch! kan spelas både på Engelska och Svenska.

ENG:

The project is commissioned by the culture municipal region of Västmanland, Sweden.

The Script is based on research done on the mental health of young people and tackles issues of gender in-eqiality. It looks at how we have different expectations on boys and girls and how this affects us.

Amanda Högberg has written a piece that has real human beings and happenings at its centre. It includes among others Miley Cyrus, Anton Hysén and Queen Kristina of Sweden. Directed by Christopher Lehman, with design by Alex Berry and performed by Maria Sendow, Hanna Björck and Christopher Sivertsen – the theme is explored through rhythm and physicality as well as strong imagery and innovative storytelling.

LOVE Orchestra to Tour China in October

After our Shanghai success in April this year we are going back to China for a three week tour of family concerts in Bejing, Chongqing and Chengdu.

The A.S:K and Vertical productions write this: “Amongst the top-class production we invited, Awake Love Orchestra proved to be a hit this year from April 18th to May 9th, with 24 full house performances. Besides, the art exchange with the first-class Chinese Kun opera artists was also an extraordinary and influential experience. As a meaningful trial of cultural communication, Awake Love Orchestra adapted and performed a special song of a household Chinese ancient poem with a Chinese traditional opera melody, which impressed the local audience that much. The three weeks’ tour with 24 performances as well as 6 workshops attracted nearly 4000.”
