the wall by elfriede jelinek

Tags: , ,

When: Saturday, September 13 at 19.00. Playing until September 20.
Where: Black Room at Inter Arts Center in Malmö.


A stove. A cigarette. A nylon nightgown. The naked skin.

Elfriede Jelinek, Sylvia Plath, Ingeborg Bachmann and Marlen Haushofer will tell you the truth. But it wouldn´t be possible if the object of revelation were another human being. Consequently, it is a wall.

The Wall is the fifth and last part of the suite Princess Dramas: Death and the Maiden I-V by Elfriede Jelinek. Here, Sylvia and Inge are performing a ritual slaughter on a male animal. The title, The Wall, refers to the 1963 novel of the same name by Austrian author Marlen Haushofer, whose unnamed protagonist awakes one day to find herself completely alone in a world that has died; separated from the outside world by an invisible wall, she writes on scraps of paper in an attempt to retain her sanity through the ordeal.

Together with the production of Rosamunde (2011) and the coming Winterreise (2016), the performance of The Wall founds the artistic articulation of the doctoral thesis work by Petra Fransson at the Theatre Academy in Malmö. Thematically, the triptych problematizes emancipation – investigates the relationship between the body and a possible existence by probing Simone de Beauvoir’s ethics of ambivalence as an artistic method – and seeks to promote acting as a dialogical and reformulating practise.

Translation: Magnus Lindman | Adaptation and performance: Petra Fransson | Set design: Sofie Josefsson | Costume and mask design: Jenny Ljungberg | Light design: Mira Svanberg

Tickets at www.kulturcentralen.nu

The production is a collaboration between Avdelning14 and the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at Lund University, with support from Kulturrådet and Stockholm Stad. Publisher: Nordiska ApS – Köpenhamn
