Skuespillerskolen ophelia


Revolt is a necessary modern classic – and Alice Birch’s astute capabilities to play around with form and language have put her on the map as one of today’s most prominent playwrights.

With the #MeToo movement that started in 2017 – and peaked in Denmark in 2020 – this play is of the utmost relevance.

In a series of vignettes the playwright rages over the gender-defined norms that possess the power to dictate our existence and expressions. The human race has a fundamental need to think, move, play and sustain itself but these societal norms leave us with a claustrophobic sensation that there is a very tiny, limited space set aside for us to live out and explore these fundamental needs.
