Dreamland - I want a Country

Traumland is the new production of Terrasse Ensemble inspired by the theatre play I Want a Country. The text of the film was written by the participants and developed as a series of monologues that enlighten the dreams, thoughts, fears and desires of 8 characters. In the winter 2020-21 Terrasse Ensemble explored the dramaturgy of I Want a Country and developed these 8 characters. Furthermore, Terrasse Ensemble produced the film Traumland based on the lives of these 8 characters before they meet on stage. In June 2021 Traumland was presented at Theater Stok together with the first live encounter of these people.
