Madragora – physical/ puppet theater performance
27 August 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm€10.40 – €20.40
The mandragora (common mandrake) is a poisonous medicinal plant from the nightshade family which was used in rituals. Because of its special root shape, which resembles the human figure, magical properties have been attributed to it.The staging is based on an examination of discrimination, experiences of violence and othering of homosexuals.
For Mandragora, Jan Jedenak is working with the renowned “King of Physical Theater” (The Scotsman Newspaper) Al Seed from Scotland for the first time. In this work Jedenak expands the aesthetic means and narrative methods of puppet theater by body and movement techniques of physical theater.
