A tribute to Sir Peter Maxwell Davies
We will meet two complex characters; enigmatic and contradictive to the audience. They tell stories from the past, present and future, all intermixed, and maybe some that are mere fantasies, bordering on madness?
The Medium is a woman who invites the audience to take part in her sessions, to start with she is leading those, but as time passes she gets snared in herself and her memories. Her character becomes more and more schizophrenic. Is she herself one of the clients? Has she murdered her child? Is she psychotic or is it all just a game? No instruments, no co-stars – just a voice.
Mr Emmet is at first sight a middle aged, successful business man ready to bring the best deal of his life to closure. Or is the walk down memory lane that we can follow all the time meant for another purpose: to end his life? The two commenting actors create characters and memories from Mr Emmets life. The two leading parts are played by Monica Danielsson and Olle Persson. The ten musicians from Gageego! play music spiced up with quotations from Bach’s fugues, Schumann’s sonatas and themes from Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
The piece will be performed in English.
