SKAM PROJECT is born from the desire to talk about the present, about how the world goes today.
In a century where technologies evolve at a dizzying speed, will western society be able to keep the pace to adapt, or will have to reinvent itself?
And what is this reinvention?
A redefinition of our individual identity, free from labels and genres?
Or does it lie in the international rankings and ratings, in economic protectionism, in closing borders or in the manipulation of public opinion?
We believe that all this can be a vicious cycle, even at different scales, of IDENTITY – POWER – SHAME.
Skam Project (Skam = shame in Norwegian) intends to deepen these topics through physical theatre, based on a critical observation of actuality and transformed into poetic movement, oscillating between the absurd and the grotesque.
The BESTA Cie. consists of five individuals of different nationalities with the same wish: to use the stage to talk about what’s going on in the world.
Together by the training at Jacques Lecoq School in Paris, or by previous tours with the Cie Philippe Genty, they believe that their professional and cultural diversity are the main ingredients for a poetic and pertinent work.
