Dag & Tid –
A man experiences how his life falls apart, but is unable to ask his family for help. BROTHER (life # 3) investigates what it can be like to have a sibling who always has to come first.
Øyvind and his ten year old son walks towards the dock, but stops outside a kiosk where you can get a hotdog for only 25 Norwegian Kroner, which is really good. What is less good is that he is bound to find out that they have no place to live anymore. The man’s sister, who has a functional disability, has at the same time decided to move home to their mom – so her apartment is completely empty. Does that mean that everything can be solved – for everyone?
The performance is split into three parts. The first one will consist of walking around Oslo Central, and part two and three will be held at the main stage at Det Norske Teatret from a bird's-eye perspective.
