More about Aske* (Ashes)

At the website of Nord-Trøndelag Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Aske* (Ashes) by Plexus Polaire:

"In Aske Yngvild Aspeli examines the invisible border between normalcy and madness: The balance between the creative and the destructive and the distance between 'under control' and 'out of control'. The director and her French theatre company Plexus Polaire take us into a sensory landscape of dreams, with sounds and smells of flames. Visual imagery, such as images, movements and human-sized puppets, are used to tell the story of Aske."
