Laura van Dolron does stand-up philosophy. She stands on stage as herself, and has a conversation with the audience. She makes theatre without any roles, illusion, or transformation. Clear, verbal searches in which she consistently makes the performance situation as “atheatrical” as possible, and tries to avoid all forms of irony.
We were looking for the simplest gesture that could make a space personal. No cumbersome and heavy statements, but rather as transparent and light-hearted as possible. The audience remains aware of the fact that they are sitting in the theatre – in a local and temporary meeting – but they are also visiting Laura. In this way, her argument can manifest itself in the space, and your gaze, even if it wanders for a moment, does not end up fixed on a boring theatre curtain, but rather on an object that is part of a larger thought.
