I overmorgen bliver jeg en anden [The day after tomorrow I will become somebody else] is a well-received theatre piece inspired by the life and works of Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. A creation in the realm of theatre and performance constituted by a collaboration of different independent art forms magic, music, modern dance, acting/theatre, video- and space installation. I co-created the piece with director Mikkel Flyvholm, scenographer Lisbeth Burian, actor Morten Burian, modern dancer Sandro Masai and musician Christian Skjødt. Together with the three last mentioned I also performed the piece, which played at Teater Nordkraft, Aalborg, spring 2011. The project was sponsored by The Danish Arts Council.
A poetic image storm about losing everything and rediscover it where one least expects it... A theatre bastard about the fragility of the identity and a tribute to the game that makes life worth living. -Teater Nordkraft
Fernando Pessoa lived and wrote in the first part of the 20th century. A distinctive feature of Fernando Pessoa is that he wrote under a wide range of different identities - using very different linguistics. Pessoa means person. The word is derived from Latin, where it means mask. In I overmorgen bliver jeg en anden the story of the modern man's quest to understand himself was told by the different voices of the different art forms of music, dance, performance, acting, magic, video- and space installations.
