The Script

6 performers and only 1 solo

What would happen if a director gives the same solo to six different performers? And demands them on the same night, at the same time, on the scene? How strictly follows each performer the directions in the script? Will they give each other a place in the spotlight? Will they become selfish-performers or will they serve each other?

 

In the script, there’s no main cast or supporting cast. There’s only one role and six performers simultaneously bring their own interpretation of the same solo. There’s a group on the stage and yet there is no direct contact. The performers do their thing separately. They are bound by the script.

But casual encounters and the need for interaction with their fellow-performers put their loyalty to the script to the test.

The script reveals how the interpretation of the solo may differ. The show focuses on the frustration of 'living alongside each other’. The feeling that you, even though you're part of a group, you can’t escape an existential loneliness.
