David Lynch meets Susperia meets Florence and the Machine: Witch Hunt is the latest NITE performance directed by Eline Arbo!
Prep yourself for a rollercoaster-experience, take a deep dive into history in and allow yourself to be confronted with the traces left by the past. Together with the NITE ensemble, wildly talented director ELINE ARBO created WITCH HUNT; a interdisciplinary, musical and innovative work about witches past and present.
Young archaeologist Esther (Sarah Janneh) returns to the remote country village where she was born. Little there has changed: men sit in silence in the village pub with their backs turned, and the youth are all vacant and bored. An invitation to head up a dig there forces her to confront a past that had been hidden away deep inside.
By portraying past and present on stage together at the same time, the performance shows how much has changed in 500 years, and how much hasn’t..
