SALON

 

 

The National Theatre, Torshov Theatre, Oslo,  15. January – 15. April, 2009

The performance was based on interviews and observations made from closed concerts in private homes. The performance text was a reconstruction of a series of these situations. The invited musician was the talented flautist Ingeborg Christoffersen. When she wasn't playing, the audience were given an insight into the host-family’s life; what ought to be seen as perverse and why it isn't so dangerous to suffer a little. The party consisted of different people with a common interest for that which is beautiful as well as a tacit agreement that one shouldn't be disturbed.

Participants: Actors from the National Theatre, a musician and a child, the audience.

Duration: 90 minutes.
