Combining the futile attempts to stage the fragments of an ancient play by Aristophanes with a visit to a Monument Research Center, this production will guide the audience through the construction and deconstruction of monuments.
Using documentary collected texts as well as complete fiction, our two guides K and L will take us through facts, images and stagings with the help of a choir commenting the outline in the way a Classical Greek choir would do.
No other period in history have been more interested in the past than we are. But does the construction of a monument help us to remember or to forget?
Monument is a coproduction with Turteatern in Kärrtorp, Stockholm and part 3 in The Memory Theatre trilogy.
Premiere March 22nd.
