A Separation is a play by Scarlet Tummers, Evgenia Brendes, Gustav Koenigs, Sachli Gholamalizad and Mokhallad Rasem under the auspices of tg STAN and co-produced with d e t h e a t e r m a k e r.
The production takes as its starting point the 2011 Iranian film 'A Separation' by Asghar Farhadi. Among other awards and nominations, it won an Oscar, a Golden Bear, a César and a Golden Globe.
First image: a couple in a law court. She wants to leave, to leave the country, to be able to give her daughter a better future. He wants to stay and care for his elderly father who is ill.
The divorce procedure is under way.
But what does the child want?
We see five actors endeavouring to perform the roles of all the characters in the film: each one is an antihero, fighting for a better future.
A human story about guilt and innocence. A universal story with no heroes.
About real people striving for their rights and for equality.
About making mistakes.
About being a child.
About being a woman.
About being a man.
About being old and helpless.
In a system of oppression and censorship.
Where do the performers hit the brick wall of their imagination?
And where do political and religious differences come between them and what they have to perform?
-“Your Honour, what am I to do?”
-“You cannot seek a divorce for every little problem.”
-“Little? My problem is not little.
My daughter’s future is at stake.”
-“She is also his daughter.
He has rights too.
I am the judge here and I believe your problem is little.
Sign here, please, and goodbye.”
tg STAN - Scarlet Tummers
In the coming years tg STAN will invest in the work of a number of young makers and actors. In this way, the company wants to share its many years of experience as a theater collective and pass this expertise on to a new generation of theater makers. STAN offers them an artistic sounding board: during the creative process there is a continuous dialogue with the three core members of tg STAN. In addition, the necessary financial, administrative, technical and production support is also provided.
In the 2020-2021 season, STAN invites Scarlet Tummers to make her own creation. Scarlet was previously involved in De Kersentuin, a STAN production that premiered in 2015 and is still on the repertoire. Scarlet was also a guest in productions by De Warme Winkel, Wunderbaum, KVS, Simon De Vos and Fabrice Murgia and was part of the company Le Mouton Noir until 2017.
