The beauty that contains suffering is, according to Vladimir Nabokov, the closest we can get to art.
Lo has passed the middle of life. She has never received a lewd text or email, and she realizes that she will most likely never be sexually harassed.
It is too late. She is too old. She has spent too much time with her three friends in the drag group The Three Sisters: Mo, Ho and My, who, like her, are becoming invisible. Lo probably belongs to the last generation of women who have never had, and never will have, a dick pick. She feels an unacceptable sadness, but then: why has no one ever wanted to send her an offensive picture of their penis?
Do-re-me-too-sa-Lo-li-ta becomes a performance about desire, aging and a last attempt at sexual awakening.
Hildur Kristinsdottir is a director, playwright and actor, and Eirik Willyson is a writer, playwright and performer. They have visited Black Box teater a number of times, both together and separately. Kristinsdottir was an associate artist at the theater from 2017 to 2019. Kristinsdottir/Willyson is known for unpredictable performances with big questions, strong emotions and small people.
Their work is characterized by friction between private and collective experiences, between the text and a physical-visual idiom, between the immediate and performer-based on the one hand and the strictly choreographed and directed on the other.
+ On Friday 24 November from 17.00, Kristinsdottir/Willyson and Black Box theater invite you to a pre-party before the performance. There will be poetry, ping-pong and talk, food and lager. Marius Kolbenstvedt reads from Willyson's upcoming novel Nesodden. Henriette Pedersen reads from Hildur Kristinsdottir's, hopefully, future publication Prosalyrikk from the daily press.
Free food for the first 50 to arrive!
