SMALL METAL OBJECTS – Back to Back Theatre

Rådhuspladsen i København // 08.-11.08.2007 // varighed: 50 min.

En perle i byens mylder. Det hele handler om noget der skal hentes i en bagageboks. Men hvem er hvem, og hvorfor vil de to smarte reklamefolk ikke sige, hvad der skal hentes?

Oplev en meditativ thriller over storbyens skjulte liv, en hyper-realistisk iscenesættelse med hundredvis af statister. På en publikumstribune som vi kender fra teatersalen, bliver publikum udstyret med hovedtelefoner, der bl.a. gengiver dialogen mellem de fire medvirkende. Bag mixerpulten sidder instruktøren og dirigerer sine spillere mellem alle de mennesker, som flyder gennem storbyens åbne scener. Midt i dette mylder skaber det australske kompagni Back to Back Theatre en underholdende, intelligent og visuelt fornyende leg med virkelighedens voyeuristiske tendenser midt i storbyen. En livsnerve i krydsfeltet mellem dokumentarfilm, Paul Auster og den flygtige skulptur.

“The story alone would be enough to make small metal objects one of the most riveting works of theatre of recent times, but it’s the astoundingly successful physical situation of the piece that makes this essential viewing.” Beat Magazine, Australien
