200110 the breakdown by jubal battisti 1129


Starting off 2020 with the final rehearsals for our up and coming production The Breakdown!

Artists involved includes brilliant actor Kate Pendry and dancer Vilde Viktoria Madsen together with our creative team, Stephen Rolphe as light designer and Bregje van Balen doing costume design.

Who owns history? What of private history? We meet a broken woman whose genetic passport has been stamped by multiple ancestors. Following her story back in time and geographical bends we try to find reasons for the mess that stands before us in the present day. The Breakdown is a little wooden boat that tries to navigate the stormy seas of a woman’s identity and physiology – where all that she is is also all that her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were. We ask the ultimate question: What the fuck happened?

The world premiere will take place at The Norwegian Opera and Ballet in January 2020.
