Love Play on Death

I performed as an actor-musician for Love Play On Death devised by Erler Teaterkompani in collaboration with Figurteatret i Nordland. The show toured in schools and theatres of the Lofoten Islands in the north of Norway.

“If music be the food of love play on, and on, and on, and on …” Shakespeare

A young woman is determined to devote her life to grief. A young man is possessed by a selfish love. When a stranger arrives with a suitcase, her past is a blank sheet, the story takes an unexpected turn. This is a world where everything is turned upside down, where boys are girls and girls are boys, where love reigns over chaos and death beckons around every corner.

Original and live music mixed with elements of Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night creates an energetic, distinctive and colourful universe . The music in the show is performed live including guitar, ukulele, Guitarrón (Mexican bass), vihuela (Mexican 5 string guitar) and African thumb piano. With participants from Norway, Finland, France and New Zealand.
