Markus Öhrn is one of Europe’s most intriguing directors, proposing a bold theatre poetics of his own, inspired by video-art. His trilogy – Conte d’amour, We Love Africa and Africa Loves Us and Bis zum Tod – was featured at some of the most prestigious European theatre festivals. Now Öhrn is staging August Strindberg’s Ghost Sonata – his first handling of a classical drama text, his previous productions having been based on his own scripts. We will see him break into Strindberg’s text; it is noteworthy that they are compatriots. This punk take on Strindberg, indeed all of Öhrn’s punk theatre, is an experience that can alter one’s view of theatre and its subversive power once and for all.

Translation of the play into Polish subsidized by the Swedish Arts Council.
