In the future
KÄRRINGMOSSEN (eng. SWAMP OF HAGS)
”Silence lingers upon the swamps. Two creatures appear out of the blue – dissapointed over the oblivion on their very existence. A time for reconing has come. The world has changed – but not for the better. A shameless reckoning can start. The Hags prepare for a party – you are also invited! A change is celebrated in good company.”
Kärringmossen (eng. Swamp of Hags) Hagtribe mixes physical theatre, clowning and acting. It takes its inspiration from the bouffon-technique – a special kind of clowning where grotesque characters deal with injustice and hypocrisy in a shameless manner. Through mockery the “ugly”, almost mythical creatures attract us “the beautiful people” to laughter and dismay.
The performance will have it´s premiere at Åbo Svenska Teater (Turku Swedish Theatre), whereafter it will tour on different venues in Finnish or in Swedish.
The lovable Hags are presented by the unique Cris af Enehielm and Grus Grus Theatres own Master of Arts in clowning, Janna Haavisto.
