We to be
We to be is a performance that is written as a play and read out loud by one performer sitting together with the audience, in front of an empty stage. Additionally, the performance is broadcast live on the radio. Thus, the piece works with three media presented simultaneously in three places: a performance in a theatre, a play in a book, and a live radio broadcast.
N.B. Starting time for this performance is 20.00, and will begin exactly then, due to the live broadcasting through SR Radioteatern. Please make sure to be here in good time.
