Virus: A Fugue - The play's world premiere - an absurdist tragicomedy
Fear, power and hierarchies compete in a world of people, puppets and model villages.
Who will survive?
This one-act play by well-known Norwegian playwright Fredrik Brattberg and translated by May Brit Akerholt, builds using the principles of musical composition. Short sentences and absurd situations are repeated with different variants as the play progresses - like the contrapuntal interweaving of parts in a fugue. As the story unfolds, the characters also experience a 'psychiatric fugue' - a "loss of identity often coupled with flight from one's usual environment."
The result is a humorous and eventually disturbing text that reflects our Covid times and develops in surprising ways.
The play was commissioned by the Czech and Slovak drama journal Svet a divadlo, Jakub Škorpil, Editor.
