Iron Ring

Experience Shostakovich’s 7th Symphony in Iron Ring, a puppet theatre performance for young and old from 15 years and up. See Rolf Heim’s and Rolf Søborg’s critically acclaimed performance about the 872 days long siege of Leningrad by the Germans during WWII.
Using Shostakovich’s entire 7th Symphony (1941) – “Leningrad Symphony”, puppet theatre grows out of the music and shows a poetic story of a family in Leningrad during the siege.Iron ring is a poem of images to a fantastic musical work. The music carries us throughout the story and the audience will experience the bombing as grotesque and touching images, for example with Stalin as a pole dancer and Death in grotesque forms. A image series of despair, heroism and the will for survival in spite of the atrocities of war.
