• Let's get personal
    February in Grand Theatre

  • So …. how are you really doing? It’s no easy matter to show your vulnerable side in a world in which we seem to be making ever higher demands on ourselves and on others. It might sometimes seem as if people are actually baring their soul on social media, but we have come to know better. In February, Grand Theatre will be inviting theatre makers who do dare to expose themselves and share their deepest thoughts with us. They turn their personal story into a universal one, and in so doing say something about the world we share.
