SPLITT BILL// MY BIRTHDAY & PlAN C

SPLITT BILL (with two t's): Swedish clowns are keeping it together. One is having a birthday. The other is having a ball. Poetic with lots of food for thought, including giant birthday cake. And some Scandinavian/French/American flair!

A collaboration between Michaela Lind (ARA Theater) and Caspar Schjelbred (IMPROSUPREME)

http://www.caspar-schjelbred.com/plan-c

Michaela's work is solo-poetic-clown-theatre: It incorporates an eccentric, tragic character, situation, object, costume, sound, dance, song, and stage design. The audience follows a female clown as she prepares and celebrates her birthday. We all have birthdays, and this ritual proves to be a deep vein for theatrical and clownical inspiration. Expectations about this rite of passage vary by personality, age, and culture. This piece compels the audience to reflect on their own birthdays and what they signify. 

Caspar's piece is a one-man variety show, an existential and absurd comic performance with a considerable dose of clowning and mime. Scandinavian functionalism meets French flair as our hero transforms between all kinds of characters, demons and other likely –or unlikely– figments of his imagination. Strung between freedom and necessity, each performance is unique in its more or less scripted improvisations…

Audiences have found the work playful, earnest, and universal.
