Twitter description / For the stressed
Long beards and “bigly” brains, vibrating badgers, dragons, fairies, unshaved fruit, know-it-alls, know-nothing-at-alls and one ordinary princess trying to navigate through it all and find her own story.
I wanted to create a performance for the whole family, children as well as their parents and grandparents. A story relatable to anyone who ever dreamed, loved or longed for and fought for their own voice and path in life. Alexandra Ekelöf
Preferred Technical Requirements
A warm full stage light. Front stage light. One spot. Fade to black.
Stereo to play music from iPad
Many times have people from the audience approached me afterwards telling me how amazed they were that they still could see all the characters clearly on stage as I stepped in and out of them. They did not know that their own imagination would be so vivid. And that’s the thing really. One actor in a black box, with no props or change of clothes can create a whole world using only physicality and voice, because the story lies in the imagination of the beholder.Alexandra Ekelöf
