The group attempting to transfer the “observer” Strindberg to the field of observation, uses in this work extracts from both personal letters of the author and other letters and texts. The fragments of these letters function as an acoustic environment creating a parallel space of obsessions and ghosts from the world of the author himself and not only. This particular “space” functions as a canvas and scenery of the central drama among the three main heroes of the work.
“We will live in loneliness in green meadows away from people”
(an extract from A. Strindberg’s letter to his wife)
The ASIPKA Group was founded in 2007 by the director Dimitris Bitos and the actress Irini Drakou.
