Request Concert by Franz Xaver Kroetz


A performance without words. The room was a reconstructed bedsit flat. The piece is about a woman who changes her clothes, drinks tea, watches TV. brushes her teeth, before she makes her bed, swallows a glass full of sleeping tablets and dies.

In our version we allowed the woman to be on social security, with sole charge of a boy of eight. Based on interviews made from twenty single mothers in Oslo who live under the poverty level.
