The Wondrous

Feelgood – Loneliness – Community
By: Nina Runa Essendrop & Tina Heebøll Arbjørn
Duration: 4 hours
Number of players: 4

We all experience the world in slightly different ways. Some experience it as frightening and dangerous, others as wondrous and nice. The four characters in “The Wondrous” all experience life in ways that differ from the norm, and that makes them feel left out. They find it difficult to reach out to others. They don’t know each other yet, but they soon will. “The Wondrous” is their story, and the story about the way in which small gestures can make a big difference in other people’s lives.

Through a few set locations we will follow how their lives slowly intertwine. We follow their journey where a careful nod turns into a greeting and a “can I bring you a cup of coffee?”. We will see how they experience the world around them changing from difficult and alienating to helpful and wondrous.

This is a scenario about discovering others who also battle loneliness and slowly engaging in their lives, even though it is hard. And about daring to invite others into your life with all what this brings of vulnerability and strangeness.
