- THE ONE WITH THE ASYLUMSEEKERS AND SOME REJECTED ONES
Spring 2010, NYAVENY
A live theatre performance and sit-com recording in front of a live studio audience.
For 10 seasons the all time favourite sit com Friends aired all over the world. A show about ordinary people with ordinary problems, trying make it work in New York. Trying to get a job, a place to live, maybe get a girlfriend, or try to get rid of one.
This theatre performance casted some other ordinary people who just wants to make their lives work. A group of asylum seekers living in the asylum camps around Copenhagen starred in the roles as the six friends.
For 13 episodes they where hanging out in Central Perk instead of the camps in a serial performance. It was just like real friends, just like real life. Just a little bit funnier.
For the performance i created a simple minimalistic live editing station where i could mix different cameras, add chroma key and subtitles live to the audience. Both in the studio and live on the internet. The performance was directed by Tue Bierring and Jeppe Kristensen, the same people doing Pretty Woman A/S
