In April 2012 we will premiere, DREYER, DEN DANSKE TYRAN (Dreyer, The Tyrannical Dane). The work is a collaboration between Lynch Company and the 2012 Copenhagen International film festival CPH PIX

DREYER DEN DANSKE TYRAN is a filmic theatre work that explores live stage performance and film. It charts the psyche and art of the brilliant twentieth century Danish film maker, Carl Th. Dreyer. It asks the questions, what was his joy?, what was his anger?, and how would his angels and his demons scream, cry and laugh? Labeled a sadist and obsessive, Dreyer created films that were decades ahead of their time. Dreyer was an enigma in his lifetime and a legend after his death.

The Live Stage work features Baard Owe, who performed in Dreyer's last film, ‘Gertrude’.
