This March let yourself be seduced by the grace and powerful emotions brought onto the stage by the dancers of the award-winning Mute Comp Physical Theatre.
The group’s concluding piece of a trilogy centred on life, death and spirituality focuses on religious feelings.
The first two parts – The Conspiracy of Spring (2013) and Plum Wine, Highway, Lemon (2014) – examined the meaning of life, pushing boundaries and appraising immortality from a youthful perspective.
As a conclusion of this array of emotions, Most Truths Are So Naked attempts to explore what happens after physical death.
The focus falls on cults, sects and their impact on the lives of people engaged into these kinds of religious manifestations. It will be a journey following the transformations that people undergo when giving into the repressive and fanatic
dimensions of religion.
The performance is based on artistic director Kasper Ravnhøj’s personal experiences and on several nights there will be lectures and talks related to the performance, leaving space for debate and further introspection.
The production will be first to not involve Jacob Stage, who Ravnhøj (the primary choreographer since 2008) cofounded Mute Comp with back in 1999. Mute Comp likes trilogies. The Illegal Trilogy (2010-12) focused on sex, weapons and drugs.
