Le Bal (2019)

,

With 'Le Bal' (working title), the Jakop Ahlbom Company makes a new and large-scale performance, which offers a cross-section of how we lived together in the past 100 years. Ahlbom creates a dance hall in which people come together, looking for love, company, bustle. They dance, flirt, argue and get bored. During the performance we see the time pass. Ahlbom got his inspiration for the performance from, among other things, the film 'Le Bal' by Ettore Scola.

Seven years on from the success of his original production of his surrealist thriller Innenschau, Jakop Ahlbom is presenting it afresh. The plot involves the lives of a nurse, a stalker and a redundant bank worker and how they become inextricably linked. As viewer you are sucked into their dark world of persecution fantasies, enigmatic scenes and Kafkaesque situations.

A woman returns with two friends to her parental home. The house is haunted by a tragic family event. None of the group knows what happened to the woman’s older sister. Her vengeful spirit, however, does make itself known to them. In a series of flashbacks, the past gradually re-emerges: the cruel parents, the crushed youth. The youngest sister is brutally confronted with the hidden past. The only way to survive is to face the terrible truth.

Lebensraum

,

Two men are living in a small, single-room apartment. Their space-saving solutions are ingenious. Everything is multifunctional: the bed is a piano, and the bookcase also serves as a fridge. But they long for a woman in the house. To compensate for the lack of the feminine touch, they create a mechanical maid. One of the men makes romantic advances; the other sees her in a more practical role. But the doll soon shows there’s more to her than polishing her day away. She has a will of her own and refuses to be bossed around. Things start getting more agitated in the one-room apartment.

“In den 90 Minuten kommt das Publikum aus dem Staunen kaum heraus… einfach wunderbar. Der Regisseur is ein Gaukler, ein Täuscher, ein Verzauberer…Alboms Namen wird man sich merken müssen. Die Wirkungen seiner Inszenierung sind ebenso schwer zu beschreiben wie die einer Zaubershow. Hingehen!”

“Their subtle acting performances are redolent of intense science fiction; their increasingly grotesque struggle is infectiously comedic.”
