Psycho - Street Cut

A Comedy Thriller

What frightens is the expectation of terror
Film director, Alfred Hitchcock

We’re going for the thrill...

 

Dansk Rakkerpak pay homage to the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, with a remake of his undisputed masterwork, “Pyscho” from 1960. All, of course, in authentic, non-verbal, Rakkerpak-style with dollops of hilarious slapstick, precise timing, physical humour and musicality – and, of course, with an unsurpassable slow-motion, finale.

The performance will be played in daylight, which naturally forgoes some of the normal characteristics associated with a thriller. Furthermore, the police and children’s rights organisations have demanded that the murderer’s deadly kitchen knife be replaced by a wet fish and the detective’s pistol, by a banana.

Nevertheless, we are obliged to issue the following warning:

“Psycho – Street Cut” is not for the faint-hearted!

 

”The most respectful way to approach a classic is to attack it disrespectfully!” -Theatre director, Niels Grønne
