About the Show
The unearthed serenity in a mother's sarong. The smell of burnt photos. And what if forgetting is not erasure, but mere misplacement?
An experimental and multisensorial theatre experience, Alu & Lesung tracks the journey of an ensemble as they revisit the calmer moments in their lives, the events that happen after where they deal with the loss of security, followed by a newfound journey of healing.
This project zooms in on individuals who are private about their own challenges and struggles. Vulnerable moments are often kept to themselves and away from others, even from the people close to them. Audiences take on a voyeuristic lens by peeking into these private moments. This production utilizes movement, minimal text in various languages, scent, light, sound, and projections. Alu & Lesung is the fifth production of Theatresauce’s 2023 season.
Alu & Lesung contains elements of violence, sexuality, and self-harm. Loud sounds, bright lights, strobe lights, fake blood, and smoke are used. Viewer discretion is advised. For mature audiences.
