I’m a human

marie-vibe-blog

I could call myself Artist? Fool? Playmaker? Analytically obsessed and possessed of synergetic science? Or pass under the name Anxiety, Anorexia de Trix, Artist of Starvation? How about childish blond pt? Politically engaged? Maybe all these words only define someone else? Honestly: It’s not that important.
All I know is this: I’m a human.

We met dramatist Marie Vibe via the organisation ‘One of us‘ in relation to a dedication of a bunker transformation by l’Objartiste titled ‘Akurat‘.

Instant connection, Marie Vibe is now working with BunkerLove veteran Lars Ditlev Johansen on a contribution for BunkerLove, we look forward to hear more about the new collaboration. Welcome Marie.

The BunkerLove speech by Lars Ditlev Johansen

Playwright and actor Lars Ditlev Johansen’s exquisite BunkerLove speech in Danish. Thank you for caring and sharing, Lars!

The bunkers are nothing in themselves. We approach them with humble steps and reverence. Afraid to wake the monster, because what if we woke up the little man with the weird moustache and the uncontrollable urge to raise his right hand and name himself “der Führer”. The demons are there in our own lives, perhaps in other forms and they grow meaner from being ignored. Let spirituality move us into our collective darkness to pull out the monsters and smother them with love and light.

Lars Ditlev Johansen for BunkerLove

On track - by Lars Ditlev Johansen

“Sometimes we feel like corpses, washed up on a remote beach. Bodies feel like an unmanageable mass of deadweight and every step like an endless wandering through blame and self-loathing. We fucked up, a faceless demon forced us… With BunkerLove we turn around and face the beast. Together and separately, we rise towards the sun, with our shades intact. Seems to be worth a celebration. See you July 15.”

These are the voluptuous words of theater director, writer and actor Lars Ditlev Johansen. We are completely delighted that he has agreed to share his thoughts on facing one’s demons at our first BunkerLove Festival on July 15. Can’t wait!

Lars has been an actor and theater director since 1987 and recently made his debut as a playwright too. His well-received piece På sporet (On track) played at Nordkraft last fall and the image above is from the play. Photo by Anne Mette Welling. THANK YOU, Lars <3
