Ghost Sonata

November 1, 2014 - November 23, 2014


A student with second sight longs for beauty, wealth, and the nobility of the upper class. His journey of discovery will show him crimes, lies, regrets, hyacinths. And a talking mummy. Strindberg unflinchingly squires us through a strange maze of desire and disillusionment, drawing us inexorably deeper into a world of bright shadows and dark truths. Rarely produced in English, director Zach Morgan and nimbus’ fearless ensemble, with a new translation by Danielle Blackbird, illuminate Strindberg’s seminal work of modernist drama.

La Signorina Julie

di August Strindberg

Regia: Raffaello Malesci

             
"Amavo mio padre, ma presi le parti di mia madre, perché non conoscevo le circostanze. Avevo appreso da lei a odiare e diffidare degli uomini - lei odiava gli uomini. Ed io giurai che non sarei mai stata schiava di nessun uomo."

La Signorina Julie
August Strindberg scrive la Signorina Julie nel 1888. Ben presto questo piccolo dramma in un atto diventa un manifesto del teatro naturalistico. Oggi dopo più di cento anni abbiamo deciso di riproporlo in veste moderna, senza realmente preoccuparci delle implicazioni e stratificazioni storiografiche e di genere teatrale.
Oggi come allora Julie e Jean combattono la loro schermaglia d’amore senza esclusione di colpi, inesorabilmente attratti l’uno dall’altra a dispetto di tutti gli ostacoli che si trovano davanti. Ostacoli sociali, ma anche psicologici, di opportunità, di convenienza. Ostacoli che nel nostro allestimento si materializzano come impedimenti fisici che i personaggi dovranno scavalcare e distruggere per inseguire la propria felicità.
Il desiderio però si rivela illusione, la voluttà delusione, il sogno nebbia fugace e alla fine la salvezza si ritrova soltanto nella sicurezza linda e metodica di una tavola ben apparecchiata.

Miss Julie


October 21 - November 8, 2014
At the Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street


The August Strindberg Rep transports "Miss Julie" to an antebellum Louisiana plantation. The landowner's daughter Julie has just broken off her engagement. It's Mardi Gras; she and the master's black butler John dance and drink. They hide in his room while the roughneck field hands vandalize the house in a never-before performed ballet sequence devised by Strindberg!
Julie and John have had sex and plan to flee for New Orleans, take a steamer and open a hotel in Jamaica. She steals her father's cash box to pay for the trip, but their plan is thwarted when John's fiancee Christine the cook announces that she will tell the stable boy on her way to church not to let any horses out until the Master is back!

Starring Ivette Dumeng as Julie, Reginald L. Wilson* as John, and Eboni Flowers* as Christine; Allison MacDonald and Joshua Lamar dance Ja' Malik's choreography.

Adapted by Edgar Chisholm, designed by Miriam Crowe, Marisa Ferrara, Donna Miskend and Andy Evan Cohen, translated and directed by Robert Greer.

The Dance of Death

By August Strindberg

in a new version by Conor McPherson

Directed by Geoff Elliott & Julia Rodriguez-Elliott


Oct 12 – Nov 23, 2014

Production Sponsor: Terri Murray

Love is a battlefield.

“An impassioned, fever dream of an apocalyptic play.” – Chicago Tribune
“[Dance of Death] is a study in the horror of life’s spiritual isolation – the loneliness that unhappy intimacy with another only accentuates.” – The New York Times

West Coast Premiere!
Chicago Tribune called this brand-new translation (performed for the first time West of the Mississippi) “fiendishly energetic” and marveled at its “expressionistic sexual tension.” Long rumored to be the basis of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?—and serving up a similarly unwitting sacrificial lamb—this battle of the sexes crackles with “a leavening vein of mordant humor” (The New York Times, “Critic’s Pick.”). Tense and taut, brittle and brave, these scenes from a marriage cut to the core—and cast an unflinching light on personal revolutions with astounding force.

Parco d'Europa - Padova (entrata da via del Pescarotto)

con Loris Contarini, Marta Bettuolo, Erica Taffara, Pierantonio Rizzato, Gianni Bozza

regia di Stefano Eros Macchi

Un capolavoro di dura psicologia che parte da un dissenso coniugale. Adolf, uomo rigoroso si scontra con la moglie Laura sull'educazione della figlia Berta. Egli la vorrebbe insegnante, lavoro che si addice ad una donna mentre la madre la vuole artista, velleità ridicolizzata dal marito.
In tal modo vengono messi a nudo i nodi irrisolti di un rapporto inaridito da regole che hanno reso i due coniugi estranei l'uno all'altro, rivali, nemici. Laura, decisa a imporre ad ogni costo la propria volontà, non esita ad instillare nell'animo del marito un dubbio atroce: quello della sua stessa paternità. Inizia così il lungo calvario mentale del protagonista che sprofonda in un'angoscia devastante, prefigurando la crisi dell'istituto familiare, che si basa sull'idea stessa di paternità quale fondamento del potere sulla famiglia e nella società ed assicurazione di eternità. 

In caso di maltempo lo spettacolo si terrà al Piccolo Teatro Don Bosco - via Asolo (zona Paltana)

Federico Luppi – Érica Rivas - Darío Dukah
Dirección: Augusto Fernandes.

Un extraño llamado Gustavo (Federico Luppi) se presenta en el balneario en el que su ex mujer, Tecla (Érica Rivas), pasa unos días con Adolfo (Darío Dukah), su actual marido. Aprovechando la ausencia de Tecla, Gustavo mina, sutil pero efectivamente, la confianza que Adolfo tiene en su matrimonio. Gustavo juega con ventaja. Adolfo no sabe que aquel al que considera su mejor amigo, no es sino el antiguo marido de su mujer.

Cuando Tecla está a punto de llegar, Gustavo se marcha para, a escondidas, observar los estertores de la relación entre Adolfo y Tecla. Finalmente, y tras la marcha de Adolfo, Gustavo reaparece, para consumar su venganza. Tras un soterrado duelo con su ex mujer, la trama culmina con un crimen perfecto: un asesinato psicológico a plena luz del día, en el mancha las manos con la sangre de la víctima.

DÖDSDANSEN
av August Strindberg

 

   

DÖDSDANSEN handlar om artillerikaptenen Edgar och före detta skådespelerskan Alice som efter 25 års bottenfruset äktenskap fortfarande lever tillsammans, förbittrade över försakade drömmar och förlorade karriärmöjligheter. Genom vännen Kurts besök från Amerika brister fördämningarna och missnöjet väller fram.

- Dödsdansen är ett rent mästerverk. Strindberg sätter fingret precis där det gör som ondast och vrider om med ett glatt sataniskt humör. De drastiska kasten i texten skapar stor komik och livsfarliga bråddjup.

Det handlar om kärlek, hat, åldrandet och döden.

Edgar – Mikael Persbrandt
Alice – Lena Endre
Kurt – Thomas Hanzon

Regi, manusbearbetning & scenografi – Stefan Larsson
Kostym – Kajsa Larsson

OBS: Dödsdansen har premiär den 22 oktober 2014.

GÖREL CRONA, JOHANNES BROST och HENRIK NORMAN intar scenen i de klassiska rollerna som skådespelerskan Alice, artillerikaptenen Edgar och vännen Kurt. I tjugofem år har makarna plågat varandra där man bor isolerade på en befästningsö. Äktenskapet är bottenfruset. När kusinen Kurt kommer på besök från Amerika bryts dödläget och helvetet kommer i dagern. Strindbergs magnifika ”danse macabre” bjuder på stor tragedi, humor och äktenskapsgnabb i den högre skolan.

'El Pelícano' de August Strindberg

SINOPSIS
"Una familia atrapada en una casa, llena de recuerdos, torturas, mentiras y abusos. Un padre muerto y una supuesta herencia por cobrar, pondrán en evidencia la ambición desmedida de alguno de los sobrevivientes de esta familia a la merced de sus propios intereses y ambiciones. Una carta aparecerá en el momento justo para develar la verdad y poner en marcha la venganza. August Strindberg escribió esta inmensa obra en 1907 sobre los vínculos familiares. La esquizofrenia tiñe su obra de apariciones fantasmales del pasado que enloquecen a los culpables."

Nota del Director:
"Para que haya Strindberg, tiene que haber esclavitud. Me retrotrae este material a la época en que los hijos eran esclavos de los padres y por más que uno tuviese un padre imbécil, injusto y hasta violento, no podía más que obedecerlo.
Creo que por suerte (estoy hablando de manera general y no de manera particular), la época en ese sentido cambió para mejor. Y esos padres terribles quedaron expuestos en toda su miseria y narcisismo ante la psicología entre otras cosas y a partir de ahí, el engaño ya no fue tan fácil.
Pero esta familia, es un ejemplo de oscurantismo, y de cómo puede ejercerse la tiranía sobre algunos seres, tomando como escudo el rol de madre o padre de familia. Los que deberían dar de comer, son los que esconden el pan solo para ellos, y dan migajas a sus pequeños.
Por eso la imagen del Pelícano, se yergue con una humorada sutil, irónica, para retratar a una madre que está dispuesta a comer a sus propias crías con tal de sobrevivir.
Retratar a esta familia, es retratar el horror de haber tenido que soportar alguna vez los vejámenes de una educación patética y miserable."
Gabriel Molinelli.

Fräulein Julie

August Strindberg


REGIE: Joana Tautz


Es ist die Nacht des Mitsommernachtsfestes: Die junge Adelige Julie fühlt sich zu dem Diener Jean hingezogen. Jean beeindruckt sie mit seiner Bildung und Männlichkeit, Julie wiederum, von hohem Stand und lebensfreudig, schafft es, dass Jean schließlich seine Verlobte kurzzeitig vergisst. Zwischen den beiden entspinnt sich eine heftige Liebesbeziehung, die von den starken Standesunterschieden und wechselnden Dominanzverhältnissen geprägt ist. Am Ende der Nacht scheint die Situation der beiden ausweglos verwickelt.

August Strindberg ist neben Ibsen der bekannteste klassische Dramatiker Skandinaviens und gilt als Wegebreiter des literarischen Expressionismus und Symbolismus. »Fräulein Julie« stellt einen der Höhepunkte in Strindbergs Werk dar. Kernthema vieler seiner zahlreichen Werke ist das Verhältnis der Geschlechter zueinander und das Untersuchen sozialer Rollen.

Joana Tautz studierte Regie an der Theaterakademie in Ulm und ist seit Sommer 2012 Regieassistentin am Theater Konstanz. Mit »Iris« nach Hermann Hesse gab sie dort im Februar 2014 ihr Regie-Debüt, nun inszeniert sie für das Sommertheater Überlingen »Fräulein Julie« in der Kapuzinerkirche.

August Strindberg’s The Stronger



Friday and Saturday, July 18 & 19 at 8 pm; Sunday July 20, 7 pm

Two iconic short plays directed by Glenda Donovan
Friday and Saturday, July 18 & 19 at 8 pm; Sunday July 20, 7 pm
August Strindberg’s The Stronger
Featuring Anna Smulowitz and Kathleen Isbell
In this short play Strindberg creates an episode of incredible, poetic power – a snapshot of life so intense, so powerful, that it rivals Beckett at his best. Like a Kafka short story, ‘The Stronger’ is rich in allegory and lends itself to many layers of interpretation.
It is a powerful play, one that makes a deep impression, and leaves one with the illusion that one has travelled far and seen much.
What is it that makes the play so powerful? To begin with, it is an immaculate piece of stagecraft. It is a tribute to Strindberg’s genius that despite the fact that one character, Miss Y, says nothing right through the play, the interaction between her and Mrs X is in every sense of the term a dialogue, leaving open the question of who is ‘The Stronger’ one.

Anton Checkov’s, The Proposal
First performed in 1890, this one-act farce suggests that, in marriage, economic security takes precedence over romance and love. The play takes place in 19th Century Russia and takes a satirical look at the upper middle class and courtship.
Lomov is thirty-five years old and his neighbor Natalia is twenty-five, well past the age of most brides at the time of the play's setting. This fact suggests that Lomov's motivation is not romantic, but practical.
Lomov is reluctant to say anything romantic to Natalia; instead, he speaks of the meadows, “....and furthermore....my meadows touch your birchwoods.” The marriage proposal itself is laced with foolish arguments over small things.

AAA Laboratori teatrali cercasi?
È sempre tempo per imparare e formarsi: ecco i laboratori che si terranno in città nel mese di luglio.

Di Giulia Esposito
Quartar Parete, 27 giugno 2014 


Laboratorio condotto da Orlando Cinque – Verso il Pellicano – II studio      
Dove: Palazzo De Liguoro
Quando: 12 giorni dal 7 al 19 Luglio 2014 per quattro ore di lavoro.
Orario: 15-19

Descrizione: Dopo la straordinaria esperienza umana ed artistica di CREDITORI, intendiamo continuare il nostro percorso di studio e ricerca sulla drammaturgia classica moderna, muovendo i primi passi verso la messa in scena de IL PELLICANO, anch’esso di August Strindberg.
Crediamo che in momenti di crisi, culturale ed umana prima che economica, bisogna ritornare a confrontarsi coi Maestri e con le necessità più profonde del fare teatro. Abbiamo cercato in Strindberg un nume tutelare, un “padre” nell’arte. Abbiamo incontrato la sua struggente e spesso contraddittoria ricerca di verità, riconoscendoci in essa. Abbiamo trovato una miniera aurea di stimoli e suggestioni per sviluppare la nostra poetica e dare risposte alle nostre domande.
Non vogliamo abbandonare un percorso che ci ha dato così tanto. Vogliamo cercare nuovi modi – anche produttivi – per proseguirlo. Quindi rilanciamo: CREDITORI per il momento non girerà? Bene. Noi puntiamo a una Trilogia Strindberghiana, e ci prepariamo al secondo movimento: Il PELLICANO
Perché? perché ci permette di affrontare un tema per noi fondamentale: quello della famiglia e , in generale, del rapporto con tutto ciò che ci nutre ma al tempo stesso ci rende dipendenti da pesanti gabbie ‘identitarie’: la Tradizione, la Cultura, la Religione o perfino il Metodo che adottiamo, dentro il quale ci sentiamo sicuri. Vogliamo fare un passo per liberarcene..
Ci proponiamo quindi di realizzare una serie di laboratori intensivi nei quali condividere quanto appreso dall’esperienza di CREDITORI, muovendo i primi passi nello studio de IL PELLICANO. Per non disperdere quanto imparato, aprendosi a incontri e modalità nuove.
A chi è rivolto: Il laboratorio è diretto ad allievi attori che abbiano maturato esperienza scenica e ad attori professionisti che vogliano misurarsi con la drammaturgia di August Strindberg.

Nigeria


Arojah Royal Theatre

August Strindberg's
Dance of Death 1


Swedish playwright, August Strindberg is set to make, probably what could be said to be his first ever appearance on the Nigerian’s theatre space, as Abuja based theatre outfit, Arojah Royal Theatre is set to stage Dance of Death, Part 1.
The two part play is about a half-crazed married couple locked together in splenetic isolation. Edgar, a garrison captain played by Toba Oyewale, and his wife, Alice played by Oluwaseun Odukoya, a thwarted actor, prepare to celebrate 25 years of married torment in the fortress they laughably call home. Half-starved and seething with contempt for everyone on the island, they fall with malign glee on Alice's cousin, Kurt, played by Ebitchi Promise, who arrives to be the new quarantine master. Since it was Kurt who brought them together, he becomes a weapon in their domestic warfare, as well as someone to confide in. But, contaminated by their viral passion, Kurt eventually beats a retreat leaving the pair in a state of exhausted reconciliation.

VENUE - Residence of the Swedish Ambassador to Nigeria on Plot 41, T.Y. Danjuma Crescent, Asorokoro Abuja.

TIME - First Show - 3.00pm & Second Show - 5.30 pm

Gate Fee - STRICTLY BY INVITATION. To reserve a seat, call 0805 277 1123 or email: arojatiata@gmail.com for details.

Times: June 13-15, 19-21, 26-28 at 8pm; June 22 at 2pm
Playwright(s): William M. Razavi

An upstairs/downstairs love affair.  A desire for debasement and advancement.  Bullying, brutal, tender, wistful.  All of these have been used to describe productions of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie.  Ours is a new version, exploring these same emotions and conflicts in a contemporary, local setting.  The mad tryst between Julie, a rich kid bored with her privileged life and tragically abandoned by mother, father, and fiancé, and John, a Valley exile striving to attain his own small American dream, is fueled by those very desires for debasement and advancement, but also by Julie’s fragile need to have a real moment of connection.  John’s lover and Julie’s friend Christine is sacrificed on the fire of John and Julie’s sexual collision, until she, too, sees an opportunity to achieve her own ends.  In their desperate attempts to grasp a little of their own, the three are ultimately willing to destroy each other, even themselves, for a moment of true freedom.

Stadtbad Steglitz

Totentanz (Blauer Raum)
nach August Strindberg
/ gefördert vom Kulturamt Steglitz-Zehlendorf aus den Mitteln des Bezirkskulturfonds

Donnerstag, 22. Mai 14, (20:00) bis Samstag, 24. Mai 14 (13:26)


„Totentanz“ von August Strindberg ist das Urbild aller Ehedramen. Auf einer entlegenen Insel lebt der Offizier Edgar mit seiner Frau Alice seit fast 25 Jahren in einem Festungsturm. In völliger Isolation. Aus der einstigen Liebe ist mittlerweile abgrundtiefer Hass geworden, sie bekämpfen sich, wo sie nur können. Aber was geschieht, wenn man die Machtverhältnisse umdreht?
Wenn aus dem Patriarchen Edgar Eddy wird, eine moderne und erfolgreiche Geschäftsfrau, und aus Alice, dem Musterbeispiel weiblicher Ohnmacht, Al, der erfolglose Schauspieler, der um der gemeinsamen Kinder willen seine Karriere aufgegeben hat? Jetzt sind sie in mittleren Jahren und ziehen Bilanz, dass einem Hören und Sehen vergeht…
Im „blauen Raum“ des Stadtbads Steglitz, dessen blau glänzender Boden die Zuschauer wie ein lebensfeind liches Meer empfängt, spielen die beiden hier die tragikomische Version eines Endspiels, in dem man sich hasst, sich bekämpft auf Leben und Tod, das aber durchaus spielerisch, mit scharfem Witz und einem besonderen Sinn für Humor.
Und so wird weiter getanzt am Rande des Abgrunds, bis dass der Tod sie scheidet.

Konzeption und Schauspiel: Anette Daugardt und Uwe Neumann
Bühne und Kostüm: Dorothea Schutsch
Regieassistenz: Birthe Walter
Licht: Friedrich Gatz
Ort: Blauer Raum Eintritt: 20,-/ 15,- Euro ermäßigt

The Naked Stage presents


MISS JULIE
By August Strindberg


May 23 - June 8, 2014

Directed by Margaret M. Ledford
Starring: Katherine Amadeo, Matthew William Chizever and Deborah L. Sherman


The Naked Stage returns with Michael Meyer’s vivid translation of August Strindberg’s classic drama.

The year is 1894. Midsummer night’s celebrations are in full swing, but the Count’s daughter, the beautiful and imperious Miss Julie, feels trapped and alone. Downstairs in the servants kitchen, handsome and rebellious footman, Jean, is feeling restless. When they meet, a passion is ignited that soon spirals out of control. Strindberg’s masterpiece caused a scandal when first produced -- and has been hugely popular ever since -- for its searingly honest portrait of the class system and human sexuality.

The Naked Stage performs at the Pelican Theatre. 11300 NE Second Ave, Miami, Florida 33161
Tickets: (866) 811.4111    Admin Office: (954) 261-1785    Email: thenakedstage@mac.com

USA, New York (NY)

August Strindberg Repertory Theatre



To Damascus, Part 1

August Strindberg's "To Damascus, Part 1" will be adapted to Harlem, 1962, by August Wilson playwrighting fellow Nathan James with a multi-racial cast April 18 to May 11, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday matinees at 1:30 PM.

The August Strindberg Rep will present Part Two in March, 2015 and Part Three in 2016, the first time the trilogy will have been presented complete in English and the first time in any language in 99 years!
The Harlem 1962 setting was chosen by artistic director Robert Greer and dramaturg Nathan James, a frequent actor in Strindberg Rep productions. It seemed appropriate to place this expressionist play into an era where, at least in Black neighborhoods, the pace of social change had accelerated nearly to the point of surrealism. Not only had the Civil rights era come to a boil during the early '60s, but the first inter-racial couples had begun to appear in public. A partner in one of these couples was the literary artist Amiri Baraka. His parallels to The Stranger, the hero of Strindberg's play, were poignant to James and Greer and influenced their vision for this character.
Part one of the trilogy has been described as "Strindberg's most complex play" and as "his greatest play," with its mix of myths, symbols and ideas and a profound spiritual analysis in a new dramatic form, and the trilogy his magnum opus, drawn from his near-total nervous breakdown, the marriage that preceded and precipitated it, and the restorative effects of the marriage that followed. The Strindberg Rep will present one part each Spring through 2016.

At the Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street in the East Village.

The Dance of Death


By August Strindberg
In a new version by Conor McPherson


Directed by Henry Wishcamper

April 1 - July 20, 2014


Location:
664 Vernon Ave | Get Directions ›
Running Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission

August Strindberg’s masterpiece tells the deliciously venomous story of a crumbling marriage—laced with black comedy and biting humor. As their 25th anniversary approaches, military captain Edgar and his wife, Alice, face off in a fierce battle of wills. Their sparring proves both harrowing and hilarious, amplified by the voice of celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (Port Authority, The Seafarer, Shining City, Dublin Carol). His adaptation brings lyricism and ferocity to the story of the tyrannical captain and his manipulative wife, and the “innocent” Kurt who stumbles into their midst and quickly finds himself ensnared in the couple’s wicked game.

Deutschland, Frankfurt



Ein Traumspiel
August Strindberg
Deutsch von Willi Reich



Und manchmal schwirrt der Schwindel durch die Lebenden / an der Grenze zwischen Wahnsinn und Verrücktheit.

Was ist das Leben oder: Wie wollen wir leben? Strindberg schickt Agnes, die Tochter des Gottes Indra, auf die Erde und beschreibt, was in ihrem Kopf passiert: ein Alb-Traumtrip durch Lebens-Möglichkeiten. Phantasie übertrifft dabei die Wirklichkeit, alle Figuren und Geschichten kommen und gehen wie im Traum. Hinter jeder Tür ist: Nichts.

Strindbergs Traumlogik schwebt zwischen Schönheit und Wahnsinn, beklemmend und befreiend, bürgerliche Selbstverwirklichungsideologie trifft auf ein Gespenst namens Freiheit.

Der Regisseur Philipp Preuss wird mit dieser Arbeit an seine früheren Inszenierungen am Schauspiel Frankfurt wie »Alice im Wunderland« und »Das Käthchen von Heilbronn« anknüpfen. Wiederum wird er Bilder des angelegten und verlegten Lebens zaubern und skizzieren, denn das Stück hebelt das Diktat des Orts und die Logik der Zeit aus und führt zu unendlichen Stationen, die letztlich immer nur Zwischenstationen sind.

Regie: Philipp Preuss
Bühne: Ramallah Aubrecht
Kostüme: Katharina Tasch
Musik: Kornelius Heidebrecht
Video: Konny Keller
Besetzung: Franziska Junge, Lisa Stiegler, Nico Holonics, Sascha Nathan, Christoph Pütthoff, Kornelius Heidebrecht (Musiker)

August Teatern

August Strindbergs svarta komedi ”Leka med elden”.

Spelas 4, 5, 11 och 12 april i Teaterladan, Wadköping.


Kom på en underhållande och intressant föreställning av August Teatern, en nystartad frigrupp bestående av teaterpedagoger, som nu sätter upp August Strindbergs svarta komedi ”Leka med elden”.
Knuts och Kerstins äktenskap ser bra ut på ytan. De har det gott ekonomiskt, hus, familj och en gemensam vän som älskar dem, men älskar dem varandra? Vad händer om gnistan försvinner och man börjar tröttna på varandra? Oskyldigt flörtande kanske kan tända lågan på nytt? Fast ingen av dem kan ana vad som händer när man börjar leka med elden.
I denna moderna tolkning av Strindbergs originalmanus, berörs de känsliga och tabubelagda ämnena olycklig kärlek och otrohet. Ett aktuellt ämne att belysa idag, precis som för över 100 år sedan när manus skrevs. Var går gränsen mellan harmlöst flörtande och otrohet? När bör man följa sitt eget hjärta, med risk att såra dem man älskar?

Spelas:
4 april kl. 19.
5 april kl. 14 och 18.
11 april kl. 19.
12 april kl. 14 och 18.

Plats: Teaterladan i Wadköping.

Regi: Peter Joelsson.

FUNDACIÓN TEATRO A MIL Y TEATRO LA MEMORIA PRESENTAN
“CASTIGO”

Montaje teatral basado en un texto autobiográfico de August Strindberg
Puesta en Escena / Cristián Plana
Con / Rodrigo Soto / Alexandra Von Hummel / Daniela Ropert / Diego Salvo / Natalia Ríos.

DESDE EL 21 DE MARZO AL 28 DE ABRIL


CASTIGO es la Puesta en Escena de un episodio de infancia relatado por el sueco August Strindberg en su novela autobiográfica “El hijo de la sierva”, escrita a finales del siglo XIX. La escena gira en torno al castigo recibido por el niño Strindberg a manos de su padre, en complicidad cruel con su madre y presenciada compasivamente por su niñera. Se trata de un retrato arquetípico que pretende dar cuenta de los vicios y abusos enquistados en esta intangible institución moral llamada familia.

En CASTIGO se exponen conflictos humanos que trascienden la biografía del autor, permitiendo al espectador mirarse en la escena y verse reflejado como en un recuerdo de infancia, donde se mezclan siniestramente la memoria y la imaginación, reconstruyendo, y a la vez ensoñando, un pasado inmemorial.

du 15 novembre au 15 décembre 2013 au Théâtre de la Tempête (Route du Champ-de -Manœuvre 75012 Paris)

Est-ce qu’August Strindberg a cherché à écrire une pièce sur le temps immobile, où les personnages semblent à jamais figés dans un éternel présent ressemblant bizarrement à un passé encore tout proche ?On peut aussi peut-être supposer qu’August Strindberg a mis dans sa pièce Orage plusieurs éléments autobiographiques, puisque de nombreuses similarités concernent aussi bien la vie d’August Strindberg que celle du personnage nommé Monsieur dans Orage… Derrière le calme apparent d’une salle à manger vue à travers une verrière, un homme déjà âgé, solitaire, dîne dans un décor figé et vieillot. Seule une servante qui vient méthodiquement apporter les plats et desservir, rompt cette solitude quelque peu pesante qui imprègne ce lieu où à l’évidence, personne ne s’aventure. Pourtant un autre personnage lui-aussi d’un certain âge vient tambouriner sur la vitre, invitant le dîneur à venir le rejoindre pour une promenade que l’on devine pratiquée quotidiennement par ces deux personnages. Peu à peu s’engage entre les deux hommes âgés qui se révèlent être frères, une sorte de dialogue, qui va permettre de découvrir le passé du personnage qu’August Strindberg nomme Monsieur. Un passé que Monsieur tient absolument à refouler et à bannir de son existence actuelle confinée et répétitive à l’excès. Monsieur tient en effet à sa tranquillité et le souvenir d’un divorce avec une certaine Gerda dont il a eu une fille peut s’il est évoqué accidentellement au détour d’une conversation, ramener à la surface des souvenirs que Monsieur d’une certaine façon aimerait enterrer à jamais. Elément dérangeant qui sournoisement va s’infiltrer partout et imposer une sorte d’angoisse latente : la présence matérialisée par de fréquents éclairs d’un orage qui se prépare à éclater. On peut dire que l’orage éclate lorsque Monsieur se retrouve à nouveau face à face avec Gerda qui mue par on ne sait quelle force obscure, s’introduit à nouveau dans la maison de Monsieur. Ce qui suit après cette rencontre est d’une rare et sèche violence et Gerda s’aperçoit qu’elle n’est nullement la bienvenue et finit par disparaître à jamais dans les ténèbres, laissant Monsieur à sa rancœur et sa haine. Le frère qui pourtant vient quotidiennement se promener avec Monsieur n ‘est pas lui non plus exempt de toute ambiguïté et l’on devine que ses relations avec l’ex-épouse révèlent chez lui une alliance de fait avec Gerda contre Monsieur…
Pièce d’atmosphère, Orage de Strindberg malgré son apparente simplicité, ne laisse guère d’indices pour cerner ce qui détermine le destin de chacun de ses protagonistes condamnés par une sorte de fatalité à errer dans les labyrinthes que tout au long de leur existence ils ont patiemment façonnés..
Jacques Osinski qui est responsable de la mise en scène d’Orage d’August Strindberg réussit une mise en scène démunie de tout artifice et de toute convention. Par petites touches il met à nu la personnalité de ceux qui gravitent autour de cette maison, révélant leurs lâchetés et leurs faiblesses, sans pourtant trop les accabler ou les juger. Pour arriver à ce résultat Jacques Osinski a choisi deux acteurs parfaits : Jean -Claude Frissung (Monsieur) et Michel Kullmann (le Frère) qui incarnent avec une étonnante justesse leurs personnages respectifs, semblant ne faire qu’un avec ces derniers…
Le reste de la distribution d’Orage est aussi d’un très haut niveau révélant chez Jacques Osinski le soin extrême qu’il prend à diriger avec précision chaque personnage même « secondaire »..
Au total un spectacle Strindberg hautement recommandable tant par la qualité du sujet abordé que par la très grande fidélité apportée à l’esprit du grand dramaturge, par Jacques Osinski.

«ΔΕΣΠΟΙΝΙΣ ΤΖΟΥΛΙΑ», του August Strindberg
(Fröken Julie)

december 2013


Επιμέλεια: Νίκος Αρώνης
Redaktör: Nikos Aronis


Η ομάδα χορού flamenco ARROYO NUEVO παρουσιάζει στον ομώνυμο χώρο, για περιορισμένο αριθμό παραστάσεων κάθε Παρασκευή, Σάββατο και Κυριακή, το έργο του August Strindberg, «Δεσποινίς Τζούλια», σε χορογραφία και σκηνοθεσία Σταύρου Λίτινα. Μια παράσταση που από την πρώτη στιγμή είχε θερμή ανταπόκριση από το κοινό γνωρίζοντας παράλληλα και καλλιτεχνική επιτυχία!

Το έργο πέρα από τα προφανή επίπεδα της πάλης των φύλων και των τάξεων, διεισδύει αριστοτεχνικά στο δίπολο «φόβος & εξουσία» και μέσα από αυτό φωτίζει πρισματικά όλες τις σχέσεις των εμπλεκόμενων προσώπων. Η παράλυση που προκαλεί ο φόβος και τα περιθώρια χειραγώγησης που επιτρέπει, καθώς και η δυνατότητα ανατροπής της εξουσίας, ως προέκταση, σμιλεύουν νοηματικά το κείμενο ενισχύοντας τη διαχρονικότητα του. Γράφτηκε το 1888 και προκάλεσε μεγάλο σκάνδαλο για την προκλητικότητα των ιδεών του και την αμεσότητα της γραφής του. Αποτελεί σήμερα το εμβληματικό δράμα του Σουηδού συγγραφέα.
