INSIDE THE SKELETON OF THE WHALE

An Odin Teatret ensemble performance

Kafka's parable "Before the Law" tells of a man from the country who, out of subjection and obedience, does not dare to pass through the Door of the Law.


Into this theme the performance weaves metaphysical and nihilistic urges, subterranean plots and black apocryphal versions of the Holy Books. Despair disguises itself as hope, and spiritual extremism assumes an appearance of mocking scepticism. The public space of the theatre turns into a paradoxical space of shared solitude.

 

The title refers to a verse of the Gospel according to Matthew: Our evil and adulterous generation demands a sign. But no sign will be given to us, except for the sign of Jonas.
