TYST TEATER PERFORMANCES
In 2018, Tyst Teater paud the tribute to 150 years of the Swedish deaf culture movement, as the oldest deaf association was formed in Stockholm in 1868. We produced a fairytales’ play that consists of deaf culture and movement for our youngest audience members in the small and intimate show Turkos sagobok (Turquoise Fairy Tales). We invited the adult audience on a time-travel journey through the important historical events of the deaf in a form of dinner for two. Parismiddagen (The Paris Dinner) moves through time and space with a title that refers to the banquets thrown in Paris in the 19th century.
Superhjältar (Superheroes ) is aimed at young adults with a story about love, identity, friendship and superpowers. The piece is based on a visual language, sign language along with extreme physical and comedic timing and is a tribute to the superhero in all of us.
In the spring 2019 we will perform Hem (Home), which is based on true stories told by deaf refugees. People who were never allowed to learn their own language or inherit their right to culture. Through this piece, we gain an insight into what it is like to be deprived of your language as well as the power of surviving. For fall 2019, we will produce the famous story of Peter Pan, the boy that lost his mother and had a miserable childhood but as free-spirited young he were, he never wanted to grow up again. He managed to escape to the island of Neverland where he faced exciting adventures and found the strength to believe in himself.
2020 is a special year for Tyst Theatre where we will be 50 years and celebrate our existence in the past half century! That way, we will offer a clown performance; Buhu and Stank!
