The time of the monster

Nordanåteatern, Skellefteå

A monstrous performance

Monsters are everywhere. Behind the facades, in the fairy tales and in the dark. Among the world's great leaders and the little kindergarten children. Darkness descends in the salon, never before have so many monsters gathered under one roof. "Monstrets tid" is a newly written comedy show by Olof Wretling, Mattias Fransson and Sven Björklund. Known from Klungan and Mom's new guy.

A monster. Stupid and shaggy, it staggers forward and gurgles incomprehensibly, without aim or meaning. Is it Satan himself who wants to destroy and kill everything beautiful that has ever existed in humanity?

In a contemporary world characterized by threats and uncertainty, monsters seem to be lurking everywhere. Here we meet the constantly stuffed boy Jönsson. He is the starving monster who hasn't eaten a single crust in his entire life. Then we have Hadar with his arms made of asbestos, he has to clean himself every three hours. And the water monster Ingegärd,she was changed after trying water aerobics. Now Ingegärd just wants to swim - at any price. Then of course we also have the wash basin monster, the horse monster, the farming monster
and all our other monsters.

All monster issues intertwine in a wild stream of associations, stories and characters. Slowly but surely, all concepts are lifted, fears, horror and laughter become one, and suddenly we are there, in the time of the monster. Or were we there already before?

The time of monsters is a monstrous newly written comedy show that moves freely around all our monsters. From the most childish Pixibok monster to the darkest monster that carries the pure evil of man. This is the comedy trio's first collaboration with the director Ada Berger , who last autumn was seen on Umeå's stage with the Riksteaterproduktionen Skapelsen . She has also worked with the Umeå local Ögonblicksteatern, and at Dramaten she has amongother dramatized and directed hit performances Liv Strömquist thinks of you! (2014) and Liv Strömquist thinks about herself (2020).

"I didn't believe in monsters before we started rehearsals, but now I'm not sure."
MATTIA'S FRANSON

"He who fights monsters should make sure that he does not become a monster himself. And when you stare into an abyss for a long time, the abyss also gazes into you.”
FRIEDRICH NIETSZCHE
