Showbox Fringe: Didn’t know that about you
Undercover Theatre Company
The Gods invite you to the ultimate house party!
David Tann (UK) and Karen Houge (NO) collaborate with Malaysian super-star Bella Rahim, director Elisabet Topp and the visual artist Simon Matthew Valentine to create an intoxicating show about power play.
The old Gods’ popularity is fading – where have the offerings and worshipping gone? Humanity is invited to a feast of glory and glitter. This is the Gods’ last chance to regain the throne and uphold the ways of old.
«Didn’t Know That About You» is a play about power structures and the different expectations men and women face. Inspired by interviews with young people in Norway and Malaysia, it both makes light of and shines a light on what is deemed acceptable of a young person in today’s society.
