“Play Strindberg”
de Friederich Dürrenmatt
 

“Play Strindberg” de Friederich Dürrenmatt, uma adaptação do original de August Strindberg “A Dança da Morte”, é uma peça tensa e com um clima denso. A peça conta a história da relação entre um capitão de artilharia e uma ex-actriz que se culpam mutuamente por terem abdicado das suas vidas e das suas ambições em nome do casal, vivendo isolados do mundo. A peça segue o comportamento das personagens e todos os conflitos que derivam da relação. A crise acontece com a entrada de uma terceira personagem. A partir deste momento assiste-se a uma trama entre o casal, sempre com a terceira personagem como ponto de equilíbrio. 
Apesar de vivermos num mundo cada vez mais globalizado, as distâncias e o isolamento das relações humanas são cada vez mais latentes. Temas como o porquê da existência humana, a vida de casal, a violência doméstica, a disputa de poderes entre homem e mulher e principalmente como são abordadas as nossas prioridades individuais muitas vezes não pensando no bem-estar do outro farão o espectador pensar nas suas próprias vivências e opções sendo que juntamente com o decorrer da peça chegará às suas devidas conclusões.

“A Dream Play”
by August Strindberg
 
Adopted by Caryl Churchill 
Directed by Katherine McGerr 

“With its contrasting scenes of beauty and terror, ‘A Dream Play’ reminds audiences both to bear witness to larger situations of inequity and injustice, as well as to appreciate the startling, wonderful things the world can do,” dramaturg Leanne Siwicki notes. “The play doesn’t offer solutions, but begins by asking us to be conscious.” 
Director Katherine McGerr calls the play “both a glimpse of the world as it is and a celebration of the human imagination. It has a unique combination of serious ideas and delightful theatricality that we hope audiences will enjoy.” 
Performing in the production are Itzel Ayala, Bailey Blashford, Mario Buffalini, Liz Colarte, Luke Aslanian Davis, Alexis Eldridge, Sean Gannon, Daniel Keitel, Matt Lis, Christian Lombino, Mary Lyon, Karina Mena, Lee Scandinaro, Lizzie Thompson, Audrey Trotta, Danny Wightkin and Dan Crozier. 
Samantha Hoderlein designed the set, Michael Mehler designed the costumes and lighting and Jeremy Loewer is the production’s sound designer and musical arranger. 

Tickets for “A Dream Play” are $10 for adults and $7.50 for non-Allegheny students, senior citizens and Allegheny employees. Although admission is free for Allegheny students with identification, they are asked to make reservations.

Studio Enigma
ETT DOCKHEM
av
Henrik Ibsen & August Strindberg


Torvald har fått nytt jobb som bankdirektör och ser fram emot att äntligen leva ett lyckligt liv med sin docklika hustru Nora och barnen. Det han inte vet är att Nora bär på en hemlighet som kommer att omkullkasta hela hans värld. Men vad rör det kapten Vilhelm och hans äktenskap med Gurli?
När Henrik Ibsens drama Ett dockhem hade premiär 1879 väckte den stor debatt kring kvinnans frigörelse. En av dem som såg rött var den unge August Strindberg, som skrev sin egen version av pjäsen i novellsamlingen Giftas. För första gången sammanförs nu de två dockhemmen på en teaterscen. Genom att låta Strindbergs berättelse inrama Ibsens pjäs ställer Studio Enigma de rivaliserande giganternas olika kvinnosyner mot varandra.

The Bread & Roses Theatre Company (BRTC) presents

Miss Julie
by August Strindberg,

adapted by Tessa Hart


Tuesday to Saturday
28th April to 16th May at 7.30pm

Previews from Tue 28th to Thu 30th April - Opening Night on Fri 1st May

A Striking & Sensual Take on Strindberg's Masterpiece

'€œTonight Miss Julie is crazy again - absolutely crazy!'€
Young socialite Miss Julie struggles to find her place and sense of purpose in life. After breaking up with her latest fiancé, she amuses herself by attending the servants'€™ ball on Midsummer'€™s Eve and takes a particular liking to handsome butler John, himself engaged to the cook Christine. They soon get into a series of dangerous mind games as things quickly spiral out of control.
Originally written in 1888, the play caused a scandal when first produced and has been hugely popular ever since. This sensual adaptation emphasises Strindberg'€™s viscerally honest portrait of the class system and human sexuality. Amidst the midsummer frolics, the boundaries of status start to blur and the battle of the sexes intensifies. Who truly has the upper hand and how far will people go in the ultimate power struggle?
Miss Julie is the first full-length production presented by The Bread & Roses Theatre Company (BRTC).  Founded in 2012, the BRTC is known for producing regular new writing showcase, The Platform, which originally took place in the upstairs function room at The Bread & Roses pub.  After a lot of hard work and financial support from the pub, The Bread & Roses Theatre officially launched in November 2014. Since the launch the theatre has immediately been able to build up a busy and diverse programme, which is growing from strength to strength. We are now thrilled to be presenting our first ever full-length production in our very own theatre!  The upcoming production of Miss Julie also features founding members and current theatre directors Rebecca Pryle and Tessa Hart. 

And to help us take this show to the next level, please support our crowdfunding campaign!  Any support that you can give to this project, whether it'€™s £5, £50 or simply sharing this link with your friends, would be hugely appreciated!

The Kintetic Theatre Company

April 17 – May 3, 2015
The Dance of Death
By August Strindberg

In a new version by Conor McPherson
Directed by Andrew Paul


Starring Sam Tsoutsouvas, Helena Ruoti & Mark Staley

In The Dance of Death, which Strindberg considered to be his finest play, we meet Edgar and Alice, a witty, long-married couple and the obvious forbears of Albee’s George and Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Married perhaps 25 years too long, this career military man and his grand dame of a former stage actress wife reside in a metaphorically apt former prison on a remote island off the Swedish coast. As their silver wedding anniversary approaches, their scathing and hysterically funny banter escalates, even ensnaring Kurt, an “innocent bystander”. Will they survive to celebrate? Accept our invitation to come and find out.

interACT presents

Miss Julie


A relationship so wrong....could it ever be right? Come decide for yourself when interACT'€™s Miss Julie takes the stage on April 10-12 at the Baird Theatre on Three, 5 Mead St., South Orange.  This controversial play of its day, Miss Julie centers on dominance, control, and the battle of the sexes. The characters move from their typically mundane lives into a previously unexplored world of passion and danger.
Cynthia Ross will direct this Pocket Theatre production of lusty social discomfort. Written by August Strindberg, the searing naturalistic classic features a new translation by Truda Stockenstram.

Miss Julie takes place on a Midsummer'€™s Eve in the kitchen on the estate of Miss Julie'€™s father, the Count. Miss Julie (Skye Hersh) is drawn to the Count'€™s valet Jean (Mike Cox), who is particularly well-traveled, well-mannered, well-read, and who also happens to be engaged to the Count'€™s cook, Christine (Diane Machin). Over the course of one evening the characters explore two of Strindberg'€™s favorite topics, Darwinism and society'€™s class struggle.

The program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council of the Arts.

Tickets are $10 online, $15 at the door.
Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday April 10; 3 pm and 7:30 p.m. Saturday April 11; and 3 p.m. Sunday, April 12.

interACT Theatre Productions is a theatre of the community in South Orange. It'€™s committed to building strong ties within the community by producing thought-provoking plays and musicals that challenge stereotypes and prejudices.

Versión y dirección:             Claudia Faci

La incansable autora, actriz, coreógrafa, bailarina y directora de vanguardia Claudia Faci cambia de tercio con su última creación y se atreve a explorar todo un clásico del teatro, la obra Acreedores de August Strindberg. Estrenada por primera vez en Copenhague en el año 1889 y calificada por el propio autor como una “tragicomedia en un acto y en prosa”, Acreedores pertenece a la etapa naturalista de Strindberg, considerado como el escritor y dramaturgo sueco más importante de la historia. Estructurada en tres cuadros que se suceden sin solución de continuidad, la pieza narra la historia de un ajuste de cuentas entre una mujer, su ex marido y su actual pareja.
En la obra, el conflicto de intereses de los tres protagonistas desembocará en auténtica violencia, sobre todo psíquica. En palabras de Claudia Faci, que cuenta con los intérpretes Pablo Messiez y Fernanda Orazi como cómplices sobre el escenario, su nueva creación, titulada A-creedores, “nos sirve para activar una serie de cuestiones sobre cómo nos construimos a través de la mirada y cómo la idea de verdad es, sobre todo, una puesta en escena”. En la obra, toda la peripecia se desarrolla a través de un juego con lo que se puede ver y lo que no, con la visión como fuente ingenua de verdad y con la posición del testigo. Faci explica además: “Ya que nos hemos establecido de pleno en la representación y ya que nuestra inteligencia se somete casi por completo al lenguaje, al menos llevemos a cabo prácticas que convoquen a la sensibilidad –que es más fina, más profunda y más segura involucrando la carne y los nervios”. La iluminación de la pieza ha sido diseñada por Carlos Marquerie, mientras que Óscar Villegas es el responsable de sonido.
Antes de su presentación en el XXXII Festival de Otoño a Primavera, el estreno absoluto de la pieza tuvo lugar en el Festival Temporada Alta de Girona en octubre de 2014.

Theatre Encounter


MISS JULIE
By August Strindberg
Directed by Michael Fenton


One of the most well-known classic plays in dramatic literature, Strindberg's Miss Julie prys apart the class system, and promotes lust as the medium that binds all of the classes together. What is the modern middle class now, and who considers themselves to be part of it? What are the binds that tie all of the classes together, and what separates us more than ever?
Theatre Encounter holds experimental trials of movement and sound in its investigation and dissection of the middle class, and society's acceptance and non-acceptance of gender rules. Boys will be boys and girls will be girls, but not with each other, and certainly not outside of their station. One thing is for sure though, lust has no class.

USA, Spartanburg, (SC)

SMC Players present

August Strindberg’s Easter

on March 26-27-28


SPARTANBURG, SC –  Spartanburg Methodist College announce that the SMC Players will present August Strindberg’s Easter. The opening performance will be at 8 pm on Thursday evening, March 26 with additional 8 pm evening shows on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28. All performances will in held in the Gibbs Auditorium, located inside the Edgar H. Ellis, Jr. Hall on the campus of SMC. The public is invited to attend; general admission tickets are $5 at the door.
In co-operation with the August Strindberg Repertory Theatre of New York, SMC will be presenting their successful 2013 adaptation, set in New York City in 1958. Easter (1901) is a play by August Strindberg, Sweden’s most famous playwright. The drama takes place on days leading up to Easter Sunday.
The plot concerns the fortunes of the Morgan family, who are on the edge of ruin. The father is imprisoned for embezzlement and their youngest daughter, Lenora, is committed to a mental institution. The family has been ostracized by their friends and neighbors for the financial scandal, and Ellis’ job is endangered. Into this situation steps Lindy, to whom the family is greatly indebted thanks to their father’s malfeasance. At the moment of greatest turmoil comes a breakthrough of unexpected and, indeed, quite undeserved grace and mercy.
Easter is one of Strindberg’s late expressionist dramas. Typical of the genre, the characters display extremes of emotional suffering and spiritual awakening. Strindberg was greatly affected by the bankruptcy of his own father, and the character of Ellis puts the playwright’s own suffering at center stage. The character of Lenora, one of his finest female roles, was inspired by Strindberg’s daughter, whose sanity was only tentative. Lenora’s spiritual gifts anticipate the play’s happy conclusion.

The SMC cast includes:
Pierce Allen Burch as Ellis Morgan, a college instructor. Pierce is a freshman theater major from Holly Hill, SC and a graduate of Holly Hill Academy.
Shakira Jackson as Christine, the fiancée of Ellis. Shakira is a sophomore Fine Arts/Fashion Design major from Inman and a graduate of Chapman High School
Tatiana Sade Ferguson-Short plays Mrs. Morgan, the matriarch of the Morgan household. Tati is a freshman Mass Communications major and graduate of Union County High School.
Samuel Stockdale plays Benjamin, a scholarship student living with the Morgans. Samuel is a Dorman High School graduate from Moore, SC majoring in Speech and Drama.
Anna Elizabeth Barrett as Lenora, the youngest daughter of the Morgan family. Anna is a sophomore education and biology major from Greenville, and a graduate of J. L. Mann High School.
Patrice Faith Haynes plays Lindy, a family acquaintance to whom the Morgans owe great deal of money. Patrice is a sophomore Performing Arts major from Columbia, and a graduate of Ridge View High School.

SMC is South Carolina’s only private, residential college exclusively for freshmen and sophomore students and one of only four colleges in South Carolina affiliated with the United Methodist
Church. SMC’s mission is to transform lives in a values-oriented, student-centered atmosphere in the Christian tradition that encourages academic excellence, intellectual exploration, social awareness, and character development within the liberal arts tradition. Spartanburg Methodist

College, founded in 1911, is proud of its heritage of providing “the opportunity TO BE your best and the inspiration TO DO great things.”

Klassiker om längtan efter något annat
5 mars 2015
 
DRÖMSPELET
Text: August Strindberg.
Regi: Karl Seldahl.
Norrbottensteatern
Medv: Sven Wollter, Kajsa Linderholm, Filip Tallhamn, Therése Lindberg, Roger Storm, Malena Hallerdt, Linda Wincent m fl.
Det faller en gammal man ner på scenen. Det är som om han ska återfödas, drömma sitt liv ännu en gång. Han förvandlas raskt till en liten grabb med Robin Hood-hatt av papper och pilbågen höjd. Så trillar en uppväxt på, ett liv som ofta liknar det en viss Sven Wollter varit med om, men lika ofta det en viss August Strindberg genomlidit. Kärlek, skilsmässor och omtagningar, men hela tiden med lusten att gestalta något mer än bara vardag. Hitta något att tro på, slåss för – om det så är öppnandet av en låst skafferidörr. Så till sist lära sig den svåra konsten att avstå, acceptera att tillvaron krymper.

Karl Seldahl har iscensatt ”Ett drömspel” av August Strindberg, men har strukit Indras dotter och i stället låtit Indra själv ramla ner på jorden. Han har stuvat om texten rejält så att den speglar en treenighet av pappa Sven, titanen August och Människan. Det är intelligent gjort, även om det rent dramaturgiskt haltar ibland, eftersom man inte kunnat göra sig av med Indras dotter Agnes helt och hållet. Hon är omdöpt till Envar, en mycket poetisk kvinna.

Lotta Nilsson har skapat en gles scenbild för stora scenen på Norrbottensteatern. Stolar hänger från taket, och den berömda dörren med sin fyrväppling – den som innehåller intighet, den stora insikten. Seldahl/Wollter har gemensamt skapat uppsättningen som här kallas ”Drömspelet”. Det är något som liknar en delvis musiksatt livsvandring, på flera plan biografisk, men också en ålderstrappa om pojken som blir yngling som blir man som blir farbror.

USA , New York (NY) 

The August Strindberg Repertory Theatre presents
 

Kristina 

March 13 - 29, 2015 
At the Gene Frankel Theatre
 
24 Bond Street, New York, NY
 

Before Hollywood's Queen Christina there was August Strindberg's Kristina. See the role that made Garbo notorious! 

KRISTINA is the true story of the scandals leading up to the abdication of Sweden's only queen. Her naturalistic portrayal in this play made Strindberg's name as a revisionist historian and led to vicious attacks on him for the unforgivable sin of telling the truth. We see Kristina struggling against old lovers and former mentors, hiding her impending conversion to Roman Catholicism, putting on ballets to distract from her financial and sexual misconduct, fighting her feminine nature and finally succumbing to it. Kristina wore pants, which were first adopted by women 300 years later; she struggled with a world not ready to accept a strong-willed woman in a position of authority...supreme authority in her case. Design evokes Garbo and the Roaring Twenties as a parallel to the 1600s. 

A new translation by Wendy Weckwerth premieres here. Director is Whitney Aronson. 

Stars Ivette Dumeng as Kristina with Sergio Castillo, Martin Boersma, Brent Shultz, Amy Fulgham, Jacob Troy, Al Foote III , Steve Shoup, Eric C. Bailey, Michael Cirelli and Christine Nyland; stage manager, Hanna Delmore.
 

Designs by Miriam Crowe, lighting; Jessa-Raye Court, costumes; Mikhail Poloskin, projections and graphics; and Andy Evan Cohen, sound; produced by Robert Greer, artistic director of the August Strindberg Repertory Theatre.

The Father
 

Written by August Strindberg, in a version by Laurie Slade. Directed by Abbey Wrigh
 

An uneasy stand-off exists between the Captain and his wife, Laura. But, a disagreement over the future of their daughter, Bertha, triggers an all-out war. 
Laura will stop at nothing to gain control of her daughter's future. When she suggests to the Captain that he may not actually be the girl's father, she sets a chain of events in motion that cannot be stopped. 
It is a battle of the minds, but the real question is - is it a battle either party can win?

presented by Living Record
 

A deserted hotel in the heart of a conflicted city. 
People are rioting; banks are burning; debts are being settled. 
And Adolph's mind is playing tricks on him. 
As he waits for his wife to return, he finds a safe haven in Gustav, the only other guest. 
But his new friend may prove even more dangerous than the demons in his own head.

'€œI don't turn the other cheek. It's not in my nature.' 

Neil Smith's darkly comic new version of one of Strindberg's most powerful plays reveals how much of ourselves we owe to our past, how much of ourselves we are willing to lose, and how suddenly old debts can come back to haunt us. Strindberg himself described his play 'as three persons, one table, two chairs, and no Sunrise'. For one of his characters, credit has been extended to its ultimate end point. 

I think it unlikely that Osborne would have written Look Back in Anger, or Pinter The Homecoming quite as they did had they not had knowledge of Creditors. The Daily Telegraph

Theatre of Nations  �‚ Artistic Director Evgeny Mironov 

Miss Julie
by August Strindberg
 

Adaptation Mikhail Durnenkov
 

Director Thomas Ostermeier
 

With Evgeny Mironov, Chulpan Khamatova, and Julia Peresild
 

Following its premiere, Strindberg’s daring and explicit drama of the ill-fated romance between a well-born young woman and a household servant ran afoul of the censors and was considered so provocative that it was banned throughout much of Europe. Now, more than 125 years later, Miss Julie is one of the playwright’s best-known and most frequently performed works. 

"€œMironov onstage is instantly responsive, quick to engage, at ease in paradoxical, provocative, embroiling transitions." €�Inna Solovyova, Teatr, on Evgeny Mironov 

“Wrenching free at last from the clinging image of a Dostoyevsky hero, Mironov meticulously constructs the likeness of a serf, who flatters as passionately as he hates.”—Natalya Vitvitzkaya, Vash dosug, on Miss Julie

After Miss Julie 

White-Hot! 
Strindberg’s great classic, Miss Julie, is given a powerful and chilling makeover in this adaptation. The original play about power and sex and money and class is updated from the Nineteenth Century to an English country house in 1945, immediately after World War Two. We watch breathlessly the sexually charged cat and mouse game between the spoiled aristocrat Miss Julie and her rakishly handsome chauffeur John. Marber’s adaptation is a thrilling tour-de-force of psychological and social drama. Not for the squeamish or faint of heart. 

For mature audiences only.  Not recommended for high school students.

Totentanz
 

Premiere 27.02.2015
 

Besetzung 
Regie - Malte Kreutzfeldt 
Ausstattung - Nikolaus Porz / Anke Wahnbaeck

Alice - Ewa Rataj

Inspizienz - Elke Wittek 

Edgar und Alice leben eine Krisen- und Katastrophen-Ehe. Sie umkreisen sich, sie belauern sich und sie schlagen zu, wo sie können. Als sie heirateten, gab Alice ihre Karriere als Schauspielerin auf, Edgar wurde Hauptmann bei der Artillerie – doch dies war schon das Ende seines hoffnungsvollen Berufsweges. Je länger man sich kennenlernte, desto klarer wurden die Defizite ihrer Beziehung – und die Schwachpunkte des Partners. Vorhaltungen, Vorwürfe, Destruktion: das Paar hat es sich in der gemeinsamen menschlichen Vorhölle gemütlich gemacht, die nicht verlassen kann und möchte. Zur Silberhochzeit kommt ein Weggefährte der weniger katastrophalen Vergangenheit zu Besuch. Doch in seinem Beisein werden die gegenseitigen Vorwürfe noch einmal verstärkt und der psychologische Stellungskrieg spitzt sich zu. August Strindbergs 1900 entstandener „Totentanz“ ist das Urdrama aller Ehedramen – emotionale Schlachten, an denen sich bis heute nichts geändert hat.

La Milana Teatro

La Señorita Julia
 

DIRECCIÓN Rocí­o Carrasco 
Licenciada en Dirección Escénica por la ESAD de Murcia completa su formación con Máster en Dirección por la Universidad de Middlesex en Londres y dirección actoral en la Escuela GITIS (Moscú), fundada por Meyerhold. 
"La Señorita Julia es una obra sobre el poder, pero no solo desde el enfoque de la condición social sino  del poder desde la perspectiva de las relaciones humanas y sociales...  
Puede ser que Strindberg solo deseara plasmar sus fantasmas personales, pero sin quererlo ha creado un entramado de arquetipos trágicos que ha soportado con sorprenderte vigor el paso del tiempo. Desde  La Milana, queremos aprovechar la fuerza de los conceptos de los clásicos para hacer reflexionar al espectador actual y ahondar así en la sociedad  presente". 


INTERPRETACIÓN 

VICTORIA NIETO 
"Una de las cosas que más me ha atraído del personaje de Julia ha sido su sabor romántico. A pesar de ser una obra naturalista, Julia se presenta como una heroína que se enfrenta a su irrefrenable pasión de ser amada sin pensar en las consecuencias que conllevan sus acciones... 
Pero no todo en ella es pasividad como la quiso mostrar Strindberg, Julia es fuerte y con carácter, y varias veces salta sobre su pasión para asumir su rol de hija de un Conde. Ahí reside la tragedia de la obra, el destino puede a Julia y lo lleva hacia el desenlace fatal. La variedad de matices en  los personajes convierte esta obra en un regalo para cualquier actriz". 

Loli Gutiérrez 
"Cristina es el personaje secundario más rico con el que me he encontrado. Por un lado, ella es la representación viva de la sumisión frente a los señores, en este caso Julia. Pero por otro lado, es el soporte realista que Juan necesita cuando su ambición le ciega. Podra decirse que Cristina es una olvidada, pero sin ella el drama trágico no existiría, pues marca los limites entre los de arriba y los de abajo. Ella es también traicionada, pero más lista que Julia, pues sabe en todo momento de dónde viene y cuál es su papel en ese baile oscuro de máscaras que Strindberg propone". 

Agustí­n Gallardo 
"Para un actor novel como yo, construir el personaje de Juan es, más que un reto, una osadía, una locura quizás. Nunca me vi ante coyuntura tan difícil pues a lo largo de la obra mi personaje atraviesa un caminar delirante entre la pasión y la racionalidad, entre la ambición y el amor hasta casi desangrarse emocionalmente. Muchos grandes actores dieron vida a este personaje. Yo solo pretendo mostrarlo con sus luces y sus sombras, con su fuerza y su debilidad y desde mis más profundos sentimientos que se representan en él". 

DRAMATURGIA: Fran Giménez 
ESCENOGRAF͍A: Pedro Javier Casanova López 

Sinopsis
A finales del XIX, el autor August Strindberg escribió La Señorita Julia , obra maestra donde se vuelcan sus rencores infantiles, su misogínia, su deseo de destrucción  -que lo  llevó al intento de suicidio dos veces- y su odio a la sociedad a través de la truculenta historia entre un criado, Juan,  y su neurótica señora, la señorita Julia. 
Con esta versión libre de Fran Giménez, La Milana Producciones Teatrales propone sacar el lado más oscuro de esta pieza  naturalista -oscuridad que por otro lado dejó sugerida en el texto y no pudo explicitar- y llevar al extremo la pasión y el deseo más oscuro, intensificado por la clase social a la que pertenecen los personajes y por la que son trágicamente determinados. 
Por eso, el  poder y la lucha por obtenerlo se convierte en el hilo dramático que sacude y golpea a los personajes e irrumpe con energía en el espectador. Una obra tan poliédrica como lo es el ser humano, un clásico lleno de fuerza con el que La Milana pretende así alzar el vuelo por el panorama teatral nacional.

Solo
de
August Strindberg
 

Sinopsi 
Strindberg escriu el relat Ensam, Solo, l'any 1903, amb 54 anys. L'autor deia sempre que com a escriptor només podia escriure sobre el que coneixia, i el que coneixia més a fons era ell mateix, per tant, ell era la matèria dels seus llibres. Ensam és una confessió, un experiment, un viatge introspectiu, lluny de la fressa social, on el protagonista repensa des de la memòria i el record el seu jo, es transforma i reneix. Un relat molt apreciat pels coneixedors de l'univers strindberg. Un text a descobrir.
