Ghost Sonata by Marcus Öhrn | Nowy Teatr
On Sunday May 17 we will broadcast the recording of „Ghost sonata”, directed by Markus Öhrn. We are presenting our productions every Sunday; each show is available online for 36 hours.
August Strindberg's Ghosts sonata is the first dramatic text made by Öhrn.
Markus Öhrn is one of Europe’s most intriguing directors, proposing a bold theatre poetics of his own, inspired by video-art. Now Öhrn is staging August Strindberg’s Ghost Sonata – his first handling of a classical drama text. 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.
