Unter Drachen

Theater/Performance (in dt. Lautsprache)

Ira has built something after her grandfather’s death: a place for feelings, a memory playground. She invites the audience into her “cave” and encourages them to let their thoughts wander and allow their feelings to be heard.
What is it like to lose a loved one? How can a relationship continue after death and what comforts us? Ira talks about shared experiences with her grandfather Mate, his death and the time afterwards. With the help of the audience, she talks about memories, rituals and wishes.

“Unter Drachen” is both narrative theatre and an immersive experience. This solo impresses with its acting precision, interwoven with everything theatre has to offer: (stage) space, light, sound and video. The delicate moments of interaction are carefully guided and create a feeling of togetherness between audience and performer. “Unter Drachen” is an encouraging piece of theatre that shines a bright light onto the taboo subject of “death” and – without trivialising it in any way – takes away some of its horror by simply allowing feelings to be present.
