Orkaters VIA BERLIN (for USA and EUROPE)
Orkater brings to your attention the performance ‘From now on your name is Pjotr staged by Via Berlin feat Ragazze Quartet.
A moving story
Whirring sewing machines
This performance, which had its premiere at the Oerol Festival 2011, is particularly suitable for programming abroad because the story is a universal one: about women who usually remain invisible in a war. The poetic text lends itself extremely well to translation and the beautiful music, played by one of the best string quartets in the Netherlands, carries the audience along.
Via Berlin develops music theatre on the basis of their own texts and lyrics, and music from the classical world repertoire. One of their previous performances was ‘A Mouth full of Sand’ [Een Mond vol Zand] which was also premiered at the Oerol Festival and then toured the Dutch theatres twice.
