“Compagnie Mobil” from The Netherlands will present a joyful and romantic comedy called “Sulky M1”. The rural accent and moustache of company member Aat Dirks provides for a seductive grip on the audience, including fans of “Monty Python”, whereas his vibrancy has proved to heal even those under the grip of a winter depression – after at least a brief encounter with Aat, you’ll be running to hug your loved ones!
On Friday, August 8th, 19:00 and Saturday, August 9th, 19:00
The most grandiose performance, however, can be expected from a special collaboration between the Norwegian troupe “Cirka Theater” and the Latvian Youth Wind Orchestra “Auseklītis”. Their co-production “Musika Mobile” is a surprising tale about a travelling circus and Moldon, its director. His greatest treasure is the music machine – a huge hurdy-gurdy on wheels. The intrigue of the show arises from the moment when the orchestra first encounters this unusual machine. On August, the 8th and the 9th, this ambitious show will tell a unique story about the contrasts of an attractive theater troupe and an orchestra, sporting glossy uniforms; this echoes on many other levels and further explores the differences between human and technology, noise and music, etc.
