Second half: Virus - A Fugue, the play's world premiere.
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.
