A Kassandra Production in coproduction with Bora Bora at:
Bora Bora, Aarhus: September 25 – October 4 2012
Café Teatret, Copenhagen: February 4 - 9 2013
WELCOME TO THE ENGINE ROOM OF ILLUSION, THEATRE AND OTHER DECEPTIONS!
KASSANDRA PRODUCTION presents a new performance about smoke-screens, cover stories, diversion tactics and stage craft – everything that comes in handy when “there’s absolutely nothing to hide!”
Real events and breaking news stories have urged performer and director Annika B. Lewis to take a closer look at a reality in which role-playing and theatre attitude is business as usual; From media-designed politicians, to corporate branding of new products, spin doctor’s framing their messages, mainstream media chasing headlines – or our daily self-promotions on Facebook. We all play our parts, and we’re good at it!
But how far would you go to reach the top?
With bite and humor COVER UP questions the concept of power, the glorification of media reality and our dealings with the stories we are fed.
