We to be (2015)

photo by Mette Edvardsen

We to be is a performance that is written as a play and read out loud by one performer sitting together with the audience, in front of an empty stage. Additionally, the performance is broadcast live on the radio. Thus, the piece works with three media presented simultaneously in three places: a performance in a theatre, a play in a book, and a live radio broadcast.
