Få med deg ”Hollywood dolls (Hull i hodet)” i mai!

Publisert: 11.05.2016 14:05 av Ann-Kristin Johansen-SSAF

KLART FOR AVGANGSFORESTILLING: "Hollywood dolls (Hull i hodet)" på Akademiet i mai og i Oslo i juni.

Avgangsstudentene på Akademiet er klare med "Hollywood dolls (Hull i hodet)". I samarbeid med det New York City-baserte ensemblet Radiohole.

Tradisjonen tro så serverer avgangsstudentene en spennende forestilling før de takker for seg etter tre års studier i skuespill eller scenografi ved Akademi for scenekunst.
Denne gangen presenterer Høgskolen i Østfold og Akademi for scenekunst resultatet av et spennende samarbeid mellom studentene og det New York City-baserte ensemblet Radiohole. Avgangsforestillingen vises som vanlig både i Fredrikstad og i Oslo. Forestillingene i Oslo vises denne gangen i Malersalen på Nationaltheatret. 

"Hull i hodet"

Om forestillingen "Hollywood dolls (Hull i hodet)" heter det følgende: "a visceral romp though grand guignol, reveling in camp and black comedy. The production was created from the students’ visual, physical and written responses to the film "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?". Robert Aldrich’s 1962 "grand dame guignol" starring Hollywood rivals Bette Davis (Coke®) and Joan Crawford (Pepsi®).
In its time "Baby Jane" was a critical and commercial success, due in no small part to the well-known enmity between Davis and Crawford. It was ground-breaking for its controversial plot spun around a theme of deep-seeded sororal hatred and casting two aging women in lead roles in a horror film, at a time when aging women generally didn’t get any roles in Hollywood. The production uses the film itself to frame students’ responses to it.
In this sense Hollywood Dolls is an echo of that which inspired it, a continuous play of reflections, always looking back at itself like the reverse shot of Bette Davis looking into the back seat of the car to see if the body of Elvira the maid is still there, still dead. But over time, as rehearsals unfold, through relentless physical commitment (that film, by nature, can at best only reflect), play and associations that begin to multiply like fractals, the piece begins to reshape and escape it’s reflexiveness, creating an other-worldly theatrical universe complete unto itself."
