Oil!

Ojasoo / Semper

"Oil!" is based on different texts and skeches written especially for this production. First of all the production is about oil peak. What happens in economy, in society, among people? Is it sad or funny? Is the importance of oil over- or underestimated?

This production tries to see the bigger picture. It's not about how expensive oil we have to buy from Statoil. Yes, we don't get 95 under 10 EEK anymore, but is this the only reason why we should worry? Maybe. But the real reason comes, when we face peak oil. The moment, the last seconds, when there is enough oil. The scientists say that the peaks is here after 10-40 years.

The production is a mixture of cabaret and critical theatre. It has been invited to the auawirleben festival in Bern and Projektion EU festival in Hamburg. Already in 1940 wrote Tigane in the preface of Nauwelaerts' book "Oil": "The first sentence of this book talks about power. The whole book is about new power."

The producers are Tiit Ojasoo and Ene-Liis Semper. Scenography by Ene-Liis Semper.


Actors: Mirtel Pohla,Tambet Tuisk, Gert Raudsep, Kristjan Sarv, Jaak Prints

The production has been invited to the following festivals: auawirleben (Bern, Switzerland), Projektion EU (Deutsches Schauspielhaus, Hamburg, Germany) and Cut & Paste 2 (HAU 2, Berlin, Germany).

Frank Gerber wrote after the performances in Bern:

Ihre Bühnenpräsenz ist so überwältigend, dass der Abend auch ohne Textverständlichkeit zum Grosserfolg wird. Die junge Truppe knüpft an die alte Tradition des akrobatischen Körpertheaters an. Eine Tradition, die leider kastriert wurde durch den protestantisch-nationalistischen Unsinn des «Theaters als moralischer Anstalt». Noch heute glaubt der Theaterabonnent, dass Theater zwangsläufig etwas mit Text zu tun habe. Die Gruppe NO99 aus Estland beweist das Gegenteil.
