In Det Siste Epos (The Last Epic), universes collide and lay the foundation for an epic story where existential, political, and personal issues unfold over different parallel levels. We meet Lilith – a nasty woman, a man who becomes allergic to society, Simone Weil, a dystopian prince and six imaginary astronauts trying to figure out how to live on the red planet. This is the anti-heroes’ epic, a story 2.0.
Det Siste Epos, is a performing arts project that describes the entire world in one performance. Correspondingly to epic works such as the Odyssey, the performance describes a whole new universe where new traditions and laws prevail. The last epic is a moment in history that holds a whole world story.
The three self-proclaimed maximalists costume designer Fredrik Floen, dramatist Runa Borch Skolseg and director Marie Nikazm Bakken have teamed up to take hubris to new and forgotten heights.
