Margit is in the museum,  looking at things from the past, which then attack her.
“Ouch,” Margit says.
“What did I say,” the museum guard replies.

Mumiebrun is the second part in Susie Wang’s horror trilogy about the human relationship with nature. With the female body as the metaphor for an excavation site, Susie Wang conducts some kind of reverse archeology, where primitive forces discover man and pulls them down into their world. The audience looks into a museum where abstract objects from the past and space are exhibited. The museum guard warns against a very old and very deep hole in the floor. When the guard is not present, the hole attacks and the action takes a dramatic turn…

+ Afterwords with Susie Wang and Elin Amundsen Grinaker after the show May 24th.

The Norwegian theater company Susie Wang has abandoned the performance-oriented post-dramatic tradition, making mimetic theater that treats fiction with sincerity. With its hyper realistic environments and driving narratives, they create an absolutely unique performative language where the everyday, absurd and monstrous combine in unforeseen ways.
Susie Wang´s performances play with a theatrical “almost-reality” that does not distinguish between the natural, unnatural and supernatural. By transferring power from the human and psychological to the cosmic, Susie Wang allows extraneous and invisible powers to take control of the action, and the characters stand back, powerless. Mumiebrun carries allegories, hallucinations, dreams and horror.
