Flowers for Torgeir // CPH STAGE

Event Series Event Series (See All)

4. June @ 18:00 19:00

Grief and gratitude are two sides of the same coin when you lose a loved one.

In FLOWERS FOR TORGEIR, Roberta Carreri pays tribute to her work and life partner for many years. The performance is a beautiful and nuanced depiction of the light that causes the darkness of grief to crack.

“The joy that has filled my life for so many years in his company shines through the sorrow and makes it transparent.

There is no cure for grief. You have to learn to live with it as with a chronic illness.

I am not the same as I was before Torgeir died – and I never will be.

But I am still able to sing and smile while feeling the presence of his absence that will always follow my steps.”

A poetic video design by Stefano di Buduo, is projected onto a transparent, permeable and moving canvas that sometimes serves as foreground, sometimes as background for Carreri’s world of flowers and memories.

A Roberta Carreri & Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium Co-Production (2020)

First performed in Holstebro, Denmark on 7 November 2020.

Born in Oslo, Norway in 1947, Torgeir Wethal discovered the world of theater with his school’s drama team when he was eight years old. He was just eleven when he started earning money performing on a traditional stage. At the age of seventeen, Torgeir met Eugenio Barba, and became one of the founders of Odin Teatret. When Torgier was nineteen, he moved with Barba and the small ensemble from Norway to Denmark. He lived and worked here, only interrupted by the theatre’s many international tours, until his death on 27 June 2010. He was 63 years old.
