Helsingborg Stadsteater & Malmö Dockteater
About A Dream Play
A Dream Play is a tragic vaudevillesque pageant for two actors inspired by Strindberg, but also by Ibsen, Beckett and 20th century surrealistic dream clichés such as melting clocks, an elongated buttock and rabbits pulling people down their rabbit holes.
Where we begin and where we end up over the course of the play, really has no single answer. The piece is a farce, and a head trip, and a collective descent into a subconscious luna park. Situations, characters and scenery are in perpetual flux, the only constant is the present moment shared with the audience.
A Dream Play was performed at Helsingborg City Theatre´s small stage during the spring of 2020.
