Teatret Lampe- international Work and Tours

2013: Pakistan
I march, Lampe participated the International Folk Puppet Festival in Lahore, Pakistan, with the new show “Kasper and the Concert”. It is a travel show for one actor and one musician – with a scenography that together with the puppet Kasper, can be packed into the regular hand luggage. The show is directed by Niels Grønne.

 

The Danish-Pakistani collaboration continues with the production of the show “The Border”. “The Border” is directed by Søren Iversen, who also was in Pakistan in March alongside Anne Nøjgaard and musician Jonas Stampe. Besides the puppet festival, the goal with the journey was to find a new Pakistani collaborator, after the puppet maker Faizaan Peerzada passed away suddenly in December 2012. Fortunately we got a connection with Mirela Peerzada, a Rumanian-Pakistani puppet maker, who made the puppets for
“The Border”. The Project involves three Pakistani artists in all, and the rehearsals started in may 2013.

 

“The Border” will have its press premiere at 29th of March 2014 on Dansekapellet, Copenhagen. The production is supported by the Danish Arts Council's Committee for the Performing Arts,  Bikubenfonden and CKU.

actress/puppeteer, as well as an upcoming collaboration project, “A Border Tale”. Yamina handles the main character puppet in the new Pakistani version of “Sesame Street”, and she has achieved national fame as an actress in two TV-series.

Anne Nøjgård had the task of doing an interactive demonstration at the Festival which resulted in our developing an improvisation with the two puppets (made by Martin R. Olsen) from our show “A Sandwich in Heaven” that we had brought with us. Anne and the puppet Casper started playing among the audience and approached the stage and a small podium where musician Jonas Stampe was playing electric guitar. On the stage we performed a small scene and concluded by bringing the other puppet, Carl, and a child from the audience onto the stage to play with us. A great success that demonstrated how puppets and animation communicate effortlessly across barriers of language and culture. This will also form the theme of our next production for children, “A Border Tale”.

“The Mole and the House That Came and Left” is to participate in the Mela Festival in Oslo this summer, and we will have the opportunity to meet with our friends from Pakistan there, too.
