Secret Hotel søger prøvepublikum til forestillingen “Banket for Bier”, som skal spille på Horsens Teaterfestival 2020. “Banket for Bier” er en familieforestilling – voksne kan komme alene, eller tage børn med.

Vi søger både voksne og børn over 8 år, som er interesserede i at deltage. Visningerne vil foregå udendørs i Mols Bjerge for at optage video til trailer og VR (Virtual Reality).
Man kan komme blot én gang eller begge gange. Mere information nedenfor.

Info om “Banket for Bier”
“Banket for Bier” er en familieforestilling, hvor scenekunst møder forskning. Performerne guider gæsterne, og serverer inddragende sanseoplevelser omkring et langt banketbord. De serverer smagsprøver fra biernes verden, blandet med bidans og nørdet bividen. Sammen iagttager vi jord, luft, blomster og div. kriblearter, mens vi dykker ned i biernes univers – biernes glæder og deres udfordringer.

“Banket for Bier” handler både om honningbierne og de enlige bier – to områder af biernes verden, som i disse år omtales som hinandens modsætninger. Men hvad er op og ned på blomsterniveau?

16 september kl 16: Testvisning samt videooptagelse til trailer
Visningen tager 80 min. og videooptagelserne vil foregå undervejs.

21 september kl 13: Testvisning samt VR-optagelse produceret af LiveArt.

VR eller virtual reality, er en teknologi, der inviterer brugeren ind i en virtuel verden, hvor det er muligt at opleve en forestilling som om man selv var til stede. Vores kollegaer LiveArt producerer sådanne optagelser ( Denne dag vil kræve lidt mere tid pga. optagelsesformatet. Sæt gerne nogle timer af.

Hvis du er interesseret i denne dag, men har problemer med tidspunktet, så skriv alligevel, så ser vi på det.

Adresse: Earthwise Residenscenter, Provstskovvej 9, Bogens, 8400 Ebeltoft.
