In the near future, a fugitive arrives on an uninhabited island with an unusual, almost paradoxical geography. Little is known about the island: its structures are abandoned and in disrepair, it bears the marks of a hasty evacuation, and recent visitors are rumored to have suffered the affects of a strange and acute form of an unknown disease.


The fugitive encounters several others who seem to share the island: an inventor, a scientist, a woman in white, and a group of jovial strangers at a party who appear to be under a sort of curse. His memory, rapidly decaying, is played back to him in fragments with the use of a tape recorder. This recorder has captured the very essence of him and the inventor says that it will play until the end of time. This makes clear what the fugitive has found: a private universe, repeating itself endlessly.


Strangers explores the themes of connection, choice and mortality as they relate to modern threats of climate change, surveillance, the spread of disease and the fears of a rapidly shifting world. Warnings from the past become a guide for how to approach the conflict of the immediate future – and patterns through time are revealed. Drawing on the work of Adolfo Bioy Casares, Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus and Albert Einstein, Strangers explores the nature of time and memory, the dividing line between magic and science, and the consequences of invention.


Following Hansel and Gretel in 2015, Strangers is the second cooperation between the TNL and the Circle Theater of New York. In the context of the Luxembourg residency, the founding members of the Circle Theater of New York will be conducting two workshops giving insights to the company’s work:


Tools for Physical Performance [for individuals]

This intensive workshop will reveal how movement and non-verbal communication leads to a deeper awareness of primal energy and honest storytelling as an individual and as a group.


Devising Lab [for University students]

Bush & Bradford reveal insight on how to think outside of the box when creating a unique world for the audience and play to exist.
