Rörelsen – Teater Nu

We are thrown down a steep spiral towards the inevitable end, a path lined with secret missions, wigs, and lies. What are we doing when we act and what are the consequences? A spy drama about the will to make a difference inspired by the political philosopher Hannah Arendt.

 She has arrived here to wait for someone. Maybe he’s wearing a trench coat, that’s irrelevant. What has she made herself guilty of? She for sure has been acting, she make things move. Is it even resonable to blame her? She at least did something. 

We are thrown down in a steeply spirat towards the inevitable end, a road crossed by secret missions, wigs and lies. Inspired by the political philosopher Hannah Arendt, spy dramas and object theatre, Teater Nu has created a piece where goodness, happiness and work are explored.

What I propose, therefore, is very simple: it is nothing more than to think what we are doing.” – Hannah Arendt.

Arendt demands action and that we take account for our actions, even though we can’t predict their consequences. Where even the quality of the action is important and not only the goal. What is it that we do when we are acting upon something and what consequences does it get?

Teater Nu is a performance and art collective based in Bollebygd and Gothenburg who creates performing arts, room for modern art and mobilises meeting places. Teater Nu has a passion for exploration of new places, new ways of doing things, newly written and work cross-disciplinary.
