Lauder! is a performance about growing up, about losing the one you love and about learning to live with the memory of what no longer exists. It is about the worlds that vanished. It was inspired by prose of Jonathan Safran Foer and by motifs from Shakespeare’s Hamlet and The Tempest. It tells the story of a boy who lost his father in the tragedy of the World Trade Center, who, in searching for him, faces the difficult and mysterious history of his family.

Lauder! is a mixture of live acting, puppet theatre and computer projections with excellent original music.
