At the Bottom of Darkness

A performance by Sanseværk
– engaging performing arts for children

The performance is inspired by mythical tales of delving into the Darkness, facing whatever is hidden there, and resurfacing stronger into the light.

We put bodies, minds and senses into play and explore darkness as our shared space, where we are connected and open. Equipped with flashlights and playful curiosity, together, we enter the darkness. We look and listen to what is sheltering there, in the darkness that surrounds us and in the darkness inside each of us.

The children are active participants who, together with the two performer-guides, move around the performance space. We create a common ritual of diving down to the bottom of darkness in order to experience its unique poetry an its power to revive us.

The regional TV2 East was a guest at the performance in 2019 and on the 12th of March, and this feature was broadcasted in the 19.30 news

    The question is, can children be taught anything? But if they can be made feel safe, as in Egnsteatret's "On the Bottom of the Darkness" - an interactive performance with two actors in a dark room with magical and evocative light design, then much can be achieved. Because it is about daring. Dare to go into the darkness and accept it, to feel at home there. Not to disappear, but to take it over.
