8th International Monodrama Festival THESPIS

04.09.2012 |

The ARS BALTICA granted "Thespis. The inimitable and international renowned festival of monodramas from all over the world" takes place from 9 to 16 November 2012 in several locations in Kiel (Germany).

You might ask: "What is a monodrama?" Monodrama means that just one person entertains the entire hall. There is no supporting actor and no prompter, just this one person and his way to entertain the audience. The passionate Monodrama-actor Roy Dotrice says: "If you want to do this you really need much self-esteem but there is also nothing that could push it as much as this kind of acting does."

Monodrama can include many kinds of acting: You may enjoy tale-tellers, body artists, poets or processors of images. Whether intelligent comedy or dramatic tragedy, entertainment is assured.

With artists coming from all over the world THESPIS is an international event with a wide range of performances. The main issue is literary and highbrow entertainment.
