All the leaves are brown, 
and the sky is grey… 

A turbulent serenade about living together. 

In Tillsammans (after the film "Tillsammans" by Lukas Moodysson), 14 young creators/players from KASK Drama play the story of a Swedish commune from the 1970s. Elisabeth decides to become part of the politically leftist living group “Together" after she flees from her husband. The rules are simple: Pippie Longstocking is a capitalist, doing the dishes is bourgeois and porridge is a delicacy. But not everyone is happy about her arrival.

The multidisciplinary play shows that living together is anything but self-evident, yet much needed. For although the hippies are no longer relevant and the Cold War passé, the actors find parallels in our contemporary, tempestuous political climate. Could cohousing be a solution to the housing market crisis? Who are the Nixons of our time? How do you create a performance in eight weeks? How do you juxtapose 14 different opinions? How do you not fly at each other's throats? Or do you? Collectivity, conflict and a bit of communism.

Tillsammans is an exuberant site-specific project by third-year Drama students at KASK & Conservatorium guided by Camping Sunset. The playground is NTGent's city theatre. Together, they will tackle the methodology à la Sunset: choosing a play, adapting it and exploring it as much as possible on the floor in a few weeks' time. The idea behind Camping Sunset is as simple as it is radical: an actor only really learns to play by playing a lot, in front of and with an audience.
