What silence has to say: Nine international actresses read and perform their new, dream-inspired play “What Silence has to say“. The theater group explores the various facets of female sexuality, from abuse to ecstasy.
This extraordinary story was written by all of the women in the company. Eight dreams merged into one shared dream in which women not only play women, but also men, children, animals and objects. The performance includes hair hanging, aerial, dance, singing and an introduction with a guided dream meditation for the audience to tune in. This is a short version of the full length, three hour long, play “What Silence has to say”. The scenic reading opened at THEATER UNTERM DACH, Berlin October 2018.
Jill, a forty-year-old, overworked mother and businesswoman, falls asleep, com- pletely overworked, dreaming that she is a man. Even in reality, Jill does not know what it means to be a woman. Too many tasks, too many expectations, an alcoholic husband and finally a burnout. At night, you‘ll encounter all the dream symbols that literally rob you of your voice. Be it a hundred chained tigers, a feather, a murderess, a underwater algae or a 33 km long horse cabaret with ballerinas wearing red tutus. Jill experiences a transformation through her encounters, but the transformation is not just for her…
The voice of silence asks many questions. Among other things, what does it mean in today‘s society to be a mother, sexualized woman, successful business woman, friend, daughter, neighbor? What does it mean to be completely “free” from any expectations? The answers are found in the voice of silence when the answer comes from silence.
