About the Performance
Lilly (Thomas Dudkiewicz), is a young girl blessed with an extraordinary lineage. Her father, Max (Thomas Dudkiewicz) and her grandfather, George (Thomas Dudkiewicz) are both gifted storytellers. Every night, before bed, she gets to wander off into an unexplored universe created solely for her. Unforeseen events throw these three generations into a twirling journey through both universes. The final story. The one that lasts a lifetime.
Bedtime Stories is inspired and conspired by the world. This coming of age live radio-play in theater is an exploration and experiment to discover the ancient forces behind the narrative. An homage to the imagination, to technology, and to the struggles of life itself.
Thomas Dudkiewicz studied theatre at the Theatre Academy of Maastricht where he founded performance collective URLAND together with Jimi Zoet, Ludwig Bindervoet, and Marijn de Jong. Dudkiewicz has been an artist-in-residence in Theater Rotterdam since 2017 and has created numerous performances, interactive video games, and a thriving art scene at music festivals centered around global themes like the digital revolution, the importance of art, and on what it means to be human. Life art in digital times is their credo. Dudkiewicz’s solo performances center around the power of storytelling and experimenting with the combination of voice and soundscape to create the perfect proverbial soup to fuel the imagination.
URLAND is a performance-collective. URLAND works autonomously. URLAND knows no hierarchy, there is no director. URLAND designs the set. URLAND creates the sound. URLAND writes the text. URLAND is on stage. URLAND experiments. URLAND refers, quotes and samples. URLAND sees technology as a means, not an end. URLAND believes in live art in digital times.
