Accademia Teatro Dimitri – Master
Jit Dastidar “Dr Sick”
Lavoro di diploma Master.
It’s 2021. Billions of people have instant access to information. It has become easier to attain it, create it and share it. It has also become easier for others to take it from you. What happens when one loses their way in the maze of such a reality?
In this Contemporary Devised Theatre Performance, a student from the Master of Arts in Theatre programme from Accademia Dimitri finds himself caught in the centre of the whirlpool that is the modern media landscape. This Bangladeshi theatre artist equips himself farcically with the innovative techniques of mass media manipulation and playfully wrestles against the insidious sides of this manipulation with dark humour.
Charlie Chaplin have once said: “We must laugh in the face of our helplessness against the forces of nature — or go insane.” Facing the force majeure, this performer use his last power to live in truth by telling lies on stage.
This project is birthed from the international collaboration of artists across various disciplines from Switzerland, Singapore, Italy, Hong Kong, Germany, Thailand, Scotland, Taiwan, Austria, France and of course, Bangladesh. The intercultural approach to this artistic creation makes this Master project a must-watch in Teatro Dimitri.
