5. Elinor Cook's Pilgrims - International Finnish premiere production at Tampere 16 - 18 August

International Epic Silence Theatre Company presents Elinor Cook's Pilgrim performance at Tampere and Helsinki in August. The performance is a part of Paula Silman's (who is originally from Tampere) theatre production master studies at University of Essex's East 15 drama school.

Will and Dan are mountaineers, conquerors. Rachel is a folklorist who studies a heroine in old English tales. Pilgrims is a triodrama and a description of the Y-generation's unrooteness. The drama dramaturgy of the play gives way to Rachel's pursuit of her own story as the main character. How much should we be ready to sacrifice for love? Do you have to be willing to give up love to gain freedom?

”You just want to stick flags on virgin territory and claim it as your own. God, it’s pretty phallic actually.” – Rachel

”…You want to stop. But you can’t. You have to go higher. Cos the higher you are, the safer you feel…” – Dan

”All my life, you know… I only had to shit and someone would applaud  me.” – Will

Performance is at Tampere Demo theatre (Hämeenpuisto 28, 4th floor. 33200 Tampere) on Thursday 16th August at 7pm, on Friday 17th August at 7pm, Saturday 18th August at 2pm (Finnish subtitles) and at 7pm. Ticket price for students 15€. Estimated performance time 75 min. without interlude. The performance is recommended for over 13-year-olds.

Epic Silence Theatre Company was based on Spring 2018 in London and Tampere. The theatre is an international and free theatre group which aims to create independent and border crossing performances.
