The Erased

5 Mar, 2020 - 5 Mar, 2021

The story of The Erased unfold around a table. That everyday kitchen table known to us all, a colloquial meeting point in constant change and stagnation. Join us in a compound of burlesque theatre, circus art and visual magic, highlighted by music and an absurd sense of humour.

This is the story of a woman with a repressive family history leaving a heritage of inhibition, where fear and apprehension has been the driving forces. Where an inner voice has been created, saying you are unwanted and unloved. To piece by piece be erased. But this is also the story of faith, to dare to be reliant when all you have been fed with is betrayal. Because real strength is to be able to trust again, after all trust has been broken. Though almost stone frozen inside she carries an overpowering desire to be visible. Not to be the erased.

The Erased is a play independent of spoken language, told with visual magic, emotional music and a big chunk of liberating humour. The artistic collaboration between Jemth, Öhlund and Moomsteatern have proven to bring out all the strengths of Moomsteatern’s actors and create stage art that appeal to the emotions of the audience, much like music, poetry and dance.
