The project AMFI # 1-4 (working title), deals with the question of how one with sound design and video can create a dramatic situation in a lyrical text performed on stage. The project aims to investigate the staged reading as a theatric form in order to create a new scene for contemporary drama – where texts are read and dramatized through video and sound design during a two years period as a start. The intention is to draw attention to and emphasize the dramatic potential of new texts.
The artistic team looks at new dramaturgies, moving towards concepts such as post-drama and composed theater and texts that in style and in its way, it addresses the reader, are found in the tension field between poetry and theater. At the same time, examining what can be handed over to the staging and reception of the audience.
The project is based on six newly written texts by Athena Farrokhzad, Dimen Abdulla, Christina Ouzounidis, Felicia Mulinari, Lone Aburas and Balsam Karam performed by an actor, in collaboration with a sound designer and a video artist.
