2020 seems to be a global Memento Mori* and theatres everywhere are shutting down for the rest of the season. Therefore theatre collective Nineties opens an online grief resort. This performance can be seen at Bellevue Theatre in Amsterdam.
2020 seems to be a global Memento Mori and theatres everywhere are shutting down for the rest of the season. Therefore theatre collective Nineties creates an immersive ritual, a digital memento mori, in which the passing of things will be celebrated. Come and get yourself detoxed emotionally and mourn for everything that is no longer there in this ode to impermanence.
Memento Mori is a cross-over between performance, dance, music, poetry and web-art. This play will be constructed and performed 100% live for an online audience using Zoom and is all in English. The performance can also be attended offline/physically by a limited amount of people. You’ll be witnessing how Memento Mori is constructed, while watching what is constructed on screens at the same time. A performance and a making off at the same time. To reach this local audience, the green screen broadcast studio tours along different places.
‘At Memento Mori the online audience gets front-row seats’ – NRC
‘Memento Mori is a provocative, ambiguous and contemplative experience – but remains pleasant to watch the entire hour.’ – Theaterkrant
