Copenhagen Theatre Circle (CTC) presents in English

Pygmalion
By Bernard Shaw
Directed by Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen
Cast: Jens Blegaa, Astrid Lund, Jamal Pejman, Vanessa Poole, Frank Theakston


Copenhagen Theatre Circle is proud to present Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion.

Before George Cukor brought us My Fair Lady as a musical starring Audrey Hepburn in 1964, there was Bernard Shaw's original play, Pygmalion. Now director Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen is bringing Pygmalion back to CTC audiences … with a twist or two.

This production will explore the theme of trying to learn another language in order to fit into another society: a theme that is no doubt familiar to many foreigners who have moved to Denmark, and also to many Danes who have lived abroad. Is learning the language enough for you to fit into a new culture? How many obstacles do you have to overcome to succeed, and how will you know when you have?

Like the musical, we will follow the story from Eliza's perspective, in contrast to the original play, which is told from the perspective of professor of phonetics Henry Higgins.

Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen brought us A.R. Gurney's The Dining Room last spring and Journeys - an adventure in storytelling in early March this year, so you can look forward to another thought-provoking production where the focus is firmly placed on the true essence of the text, sparking your imagination through various media.

TRANSPORT
There is limited street parking near the venue, although there is underground parking for 130 cars accessible from the corner of Serridslevvej and Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads, beside the theatre. Be aware, however, that there can be great demand for parking in connection with events in nearby Fælledparken or the National Stadium (Parken). We would therefore recommend taking public transport. The nearest S-train station is Nordhavn. The venue can easily be reached by buses 1A, 14, 40 and 401.

COPENHAGEN THEATRE CIRCLE
This English-speaking group of theatre enthusiasts has been providing Copenhagen audiences with high-quality drama in English since 1968. It presents three stage productions for the general public each year and hosts play-readings, improvisation courses and all manner of other theatre- and acting-related events throughout the season.

Copenhagen Theatre Circle er stolt af at præsentere Bernard Shaws Pygmalion.

Før George Cukor i 1964 gav os musicalen My Fair Lady med Audrey Hepburn i hovedrollen fandtes Bernard Shaws oprindelige skuespil Pygmalion. CTCs publikum får nu instruktøren Jeremy Thomas-Poulsens version af Pygmalion ... med en ny drejning eller to.

Denne produktion vil udforske temaet om at lære et nyt sprog for at kunne passe ind i et andet samfund: en problemstilling, der uden tvivl er velkendt for mange udlændinge, som er flyttet til Danmark, og også for mange danskere, som har boet udenlands. Er det nok at lære sproget for at kunne passe ind i en ny kultur? Hvor mange forhindringer skal man overvinde for at opnå succes, og hvordan kan man vide, at man har nået målet?

Som i musicalen følger vi historien fra Elizas synsvinkel, i modsætning til det oprindelige stykke, som er fortalt ud fra professor i fonetik Henry Higgins' perspektiv.

Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen bragte os A. R. Gurneys The Dining Room sidste forår og Journeys - an adventure in storytelling i begyndelsen af marts i år, så man kan godt begynde at glæde sig til endnu en tankevækkende forestilling, hvor der stilles skarpt på den virkelige essens af teksten, og hvor ens fantasi bliver vakt til live gennem brugen af forskellige medier i opsætningen.

COPENHAGEN THEATRE CIRCLE
Denne engelsksprogede gruppe af teater-entusiaster har leveret højkvalitets drama på engelsk til det Københavnske publikum siden 1968. Hvert år opfører man tre forestillinger for offentligheden, og derudover er CTC også vært for play readings, improvisations-workshops og alle mulige andre teater- og skuespil-relaterede arrangementer i løbet af sæsonen.

Det er også et godt sted for nybegyndere at møde ligesindede sjæle, som elsker at deltage aktivt i teater-produktioner (www.ctcircle.dk).
