Festen - The Celebration

based on the eponymous film by Thomas Vinterberg. Adapted for the stage by David Eldridge

From 06.07.2017 to 09.07.2017

ZILLER - HALL

A family celebration disrupts the superficial peace of the Hansen family household. The family patriarch and businessman Helge celebrates his 60th birthday, surrounded by relatives and close friends. The buried secrets of the family come to light. Nobody is really shocked, though. The feast goes on as if nothing happened. The well-oiled bourgeois machine still holds. Thomas Vinterberg’s film Festen created a sensation when it first came out in 1998. It was the first film created under the rules of Dogme 95, a movement founded by Lars von Trier and other Danish filmmakers. They proposed a form of filmmaking that would not be based on technical gimmicks, special effects, and other conventions that give an illusion of reality. In this production, which was first presented last year at the National Theatre of Northern Greece where it got rave reviews and was sold out, director Giannis Paraskevopoulos and his team introduce their own “Dogme,” revealing the true core of the theatre: humankind.
