Existential splatter-theatre for adults: Burnt Toast is the third and final part of Susie Wang’s trilogy about human nature.
Over the past four years, theater company Susie Wang has presented three critically acclaimed performances that altogether make up a horror trilogy about the human nature: The Hum (2017), Mummy Brown (2018) and Burnt Toast (2020). This fall, we are presenting the entire trilogy at Black Box teater.
Betty is at the front desk, Violet is waiting for her baggage and Danny asks for a map. All of them are longing for love.
– We are here, says Betty as she draws a ring around the hotel.
– Not so fast, says Danny.
– And this is the zoo.
– Would you like to go there?
– How did you know, says Danny.
– Body language, says Betty.
We move around in an animal vessel called the body. Culture looks down on the body and we look up to the culture, but the animal is lost to shame and does anything to look good.
Susie Wang was founded in 2017 by Trine Falch, Martin Langlie, Mona Solhaug and Bo Krister Wallström. After years in a performance-oriented theater field, they have taken a dramatic turn and now make theatre based in fiction.
NB! This is body horror for adults. The story contains elements that some might find scary.
