August Strindberg's Inferno is a classic novel that takes palce in France, where he attempts alchemical experiements and suffers from hallucinations, paranoia and nightmares. His pillow takes human form, he suspects that he might be followed and he hears knocking on the walls. In the village where he lives, people call him the weirdo. In another country a little daughter is waiting for her fathers.
Where do we draw the line between fantasy and reality? With whom can we share our secret fantasies and dreams? Can a grown-up be as scared as a child? In that case, who will be there to comfort them?
Strindberg's production of Inferno directed by Anna Pettersson and with Siri Hamari as Strindberg is a playful, charming tale of unlimited dreams and joyfully scary fantasies. Through magic tricks, clownery and film we show Stringberg's depiction of a creative crisis and the search for new forms. Suitable for children aged 6-10.
