BIRD IN MAGIC RAIN
Multi-medial two act play for three performers
Essentially a piece about longing and coming to terms with ones current situation or predicament, Bird in Magic Rain With Tears centers around three characters whose fates are, more or less, coincidentally intertwined:
A conceptual artist trying to get past the death of her son. A boy-prostitute vainly looking to find the truth about his past. A terminally ill businessman longing for the love his marriage could never provide.
The starting point for the play was a dark chapter in the biography "Storeulv" ("Big-wolf"), about real-life Norwegian tanker mogul John Fredriksen. The project therefore received a lot of attention from the media, even before work was started on the production.
Eventually the true story of Fredriksen's past became part of the play that very much raises questions regarding facts and fiction and how we present and stage our lives.
What are the truths about ourselves and our past?
"A text-theatre that sends shivers of joy down your spine because it's so elegant, raw and cheaky [...], but also because the experience is so complete and unique."
