The Plaster sculpture is made in the studio in 1949. It has been given to Vallekilde Højskole
(a school for grownups) in Seeland 60 years ago. When the studio was launching the opening
exhibition the school gave it to the Association of Astrid Noacks Atelier. The Bronze foundry
Leif Jensen has sponsored the restoration of the sculpture and Mogens Jensen
(Hellerup Transportation company) has sponsored the transportation from Vallekilde to the foundry
and from there to the studio.

Sarah says: The dramaturgy of the performance is inspired by the works and
working method of Astrid Noack, which make the creation process an event
between the audience and the players.
The performance is inspired by her understanding of the individual which
Astrid Noack expressed through her works.
