Perpleks opened Friday night. It´s a funny-weird little show that is impossible to put in just one category.

Costume-design: Janne Robberstad

Lighting-design: Torill Lund Sævland
Actors:

“Øystein”: Øystein Martinsen
“Svein”: Svein Solenes
_MG_1899
A couple returns home from a holiday, where a couple of friends have been house-sitting. Or have they? They act like if it´s their home, and maybe it is, because didm´t they have a different sofa-table? And a cat? And that plant was never there before?

The characters in the show change roles and relationships with each other continuously, but you hardly notice until after a while, and it is quite confusing.

_MG_1747

It is actually done on purpose by the author, to confuse the audience. It´s part of his idea for the show.

_MG_1901

The actors start out in normal clothes, they are just ordinary people.

_MG_1895

Svein constantly without clothes, getting some brilliant philosophical ideas in the shower.

_MG_1762

Øystein above as an 8-year old boy who didm´t succeed in getting his judo-belt.

Some ghosts are found in the closets of a summer-house….

_MG_1793

There is also a costume-party in the middle of the show, based around the theme: Nordic nights.

_MG_1815

Øystein as a down-hill-skier…

_MG_1809

Ragnhild as a valkyrian viking!

_MG_1831

Svein as a moose. And ingrid as a…

_MG_1822

Her head is exploding in a cloud of ash! Her arms are streams of lava running down her rocky mountainous body… she´s an Icelandic volcano, of course!

_MG_1867

What goes on behind the couch between the moose and the down-hill-skier?

_MG_1850

Well, it certainly seems to slow down the feel-goo-vibe of the party…

_MG_1905

Ingrid always though someone was watching her.

Nietsche visits, the backstage-crew starts taking the set down, the director is gone, the stage master takes a break.

_MG_1908

This is a show with lots of food for thought, if you have the chance, you should absolutely see it! The director and the actors have made such a brilliant show! And I am so honored to be part of this great team!!
