Udsigt is several plays, which are written based on the same set of guidelines.
Four guidelines for the one or those, who are going to write a play. (1) The play is to take place at a location, which can act as the scenography for the play. There cannot be taken anything from the place, only added. (2) The play may not have an audience, the only way to experience the play, is by participating. The participants come as they are, and cannot be asked to bring anything, or have practiced or read anything beforehand. The roles in the play are given at random and all roles must be playable by everyone. When the play has begun, it must be able to complete without anybody else, but those who came unprepared, is present. (3) The one or those who have written the play, cannot be present, when the play is acted out. Therefore the play needs a gamemaster. The gamemaster is there to welcome and to be sure that everybody has come and are given a role. The gamemaster may participate in the play, but if the gamemaster does, then the gamemaster may not have a predetermined role, but have to be given one at random, like the rest of the group. (4) The play may not be documented by the one or those who have written the play. The line-up of the play (scenography, costumes, props, manuscripts) may be documented when the participants are not present. The participants may not be asked to document, but may take pictures and record during the play.
Udsigt have invited Selina Rom Andersen to write a play for Alt_Cph 2018. Udsigt is arranged by Aske Høier Olsen.
