King Size is performed in German with Danish surtitles.
Guest performance by Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne and CPH Opera Festival
This production from Theater Basel / Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne is presented in collaboration with CPH Opera Festival and has been made possible with support from the Bikuben Foundation and Pro Helvetia – Swiss Arts Council.
Christoph Marthaler, one of Europe’s most popular theatre directors, presents an irresistible universe. Tenderly, gently, the production reveals and embraces what it means to be a person living in 2018.
A king-size bed takes centre stage. Here, in the most intimate of settings, a man and a woman deliver a musical repertoire encompassing everything from traditional ballads and classic works to pop music.
Christoph Marthaler invites his audience into a world of absurdity. For example, the man styling the non-existent hair on his bald head, the lady revelling in senile gaffes, and pop tracks performed with such vigour that it is hard to contain your laughter.
Offbeat humour and very touching.
The performance is in Deutsch with Danish supertitles.
Expected duration: 1 hours and 15 minutes
The Royal Danish Playhouse, Mellemgulvet
