A theater piece where minor thoughts are given major space.
Måneskinsmanetane is Norwegian and means something in the direction of "Moonlight Jellies". The performance takes place before our eyes, but also elsewhere. Fragments of past, present and imagination merge into this subtle and suggestive notion, where the things that are actually happening are not visible, and where minor thoughts are given major space.
On stage, nothing is said. Yet, something is said. Words from the speakers fill the actors, other people's thoughts and voices, talking to us about loneliness and disconnection, about a longing for other stories.
do you still live there
where the mountains meet the sky
and the river flows wild?
and the bears and wolves and deers
are lurking in the forest?
didn’t you know?
many things have changed
many things have changed indeed
