Exodus

Teaterforeningen Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt

Description

A Swiss-Danish family travels to Sicily. They visit a house in the mountains called Mondo Nuevo. This is the provisional home of nine Nigerian men, who are recovering from a boat trip and waiting for further travel documents. The north-European guests and the inhabitants of Mondo Nuevo exchange songs for songs and establish temporary friendship. EXODUS is a performance concert by and with family Liebmann-Schmidt. Inspired by medieval tradition, the tale is sung on the melody of the Danish ballad Kongebørnene, and reports from a valley on the other side of the mountains. EXODUS was produced in 2015. In 2018, it is already an archive of lost optimism within the recent history of migration.
