Verdrängen Verdrängen Verdrängen
Kuvaaja: Saara Autere
Testing the limits of experimental contemporary music theatre.

Verdrängen Verdrängen Verdrängen marks the 20th anniversary of the Finnish minimalist performance art company Oblivia. In this obsessively researched and crystallised performance, Oblivia works through the various meanings of the German word ‘verdrängen’ and investigates rejection, abandonment, dislocation, and disengagement.

On a plain black stage, in the light of overhanging white neon lights, three performers test the limits of experimental contemporary music theatre. Oblivia devised the performance in collaboration with multitalented young composer Yiran Zhaon and the company’s resident lighting designer Meri Ekola. Together, they drill down to collective European memories from the start of the 20th century until the year 1989. The year when everything changed.
