STAND UP DRAMA
What' s the body gotta do? To evaporate the heart? The heart's melancholy?
Concept, Choreography & Performance by
Charlier Laban Trier,
This is not a stand-up. I repeat. This is not a stand-up.
It is time for sorrow indeed.
The urgencies should be considered irrelevant and received lightly.
In a space where everything is possible, I wonder…
I wonder how much it can fit. My stuff, are not in boxes.
Laugh / Cry after the tone. Please!!! Please!!!
The format of Stand-Up Comedy is used and addressed to structure a drama inspired by the personal experiences of the performer/maker.
His main drive is the tiredness of standing up for things he doesn’t believe in. He believes in love and not in politics. He is desperately trying to find a way to evaporate the sadness from his body.
His act consists of an ode to work and money, a pathetic moment for empathetic people, a denial of a nation, a survey on open, closed, short and long distance relationships, a report on bikram yoga, an algorithm to evaporate sadness, an award to learning, a lullaby for walking a bit faster and many more…
STAND UP DRAMA had its first presentation in OT301 (Amsterdam) during the 12th edition of Highs & Lows by 4bid Gallery. 23rd of September 2015. For more information: Highs & Lows
