Parrot {in the} Tank presents LIFE Show by Sgt. Tejnorova & The Commando - direct from Prague and after a roaring success at this year's Stockholm Fringe. LIFE Show is an interactive show blending fiction, reality show and documentary. Contemporary Hansel and Gretel, lost in a gingerbread cottage of media reality, leave the stage to find their missing fathers in the streets of North London. Performed in English.

Exploring the borderline between reality and show, between documentary and acting, truth and lies, it asks a fundamental question: Is theatre a social event or is it a form of an individual's experience and perception?

LIFEshow demonstrates new possibilities of combining theatrical language and modern technology. The project focuses on finding the borderline between actors and performers, between being in a role and being oneself, on examining the borderline between reality and show, between documentary and acting, truth and lie. That relates to new ways of audience involvement and the strategy of affecting and influencing public life. This style of work raises the fundamental question if theatre should remain a social event or if it is a form of an individual’s experience and perception.
