An Italian guy tells us the story of his journey from Rome to Copenhagen, his struggle to find his own way amongst cultural differences and strange encounters…
by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, directed by Andrea Ruaro
The short story on which this theatre adaptation is based revolves around the Greek myth of the Minotaur. In Dürrenmatt’s version, the perspective is inverted and the myth is recreated and voided in a post-modern fashion. Read more at Andrea’s website.
People in Cages
by David Henry Wilson, directed by Anna Pliachkounova
This short play is in fact a set of four scenes, linked together by the idea of humans being put into a cage and by the recurring character, the caretaker Mr. Jacob. Each scene introduces a new “caged” attraction, as Mr. Jacob brings in the new visitors to see “it”.

by Walter Wykes, directed by Micah Epstein
