Overview

Virginia Woolf’s classic tale

 

“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” (David Bowie)

 

Nothing changes. And then, in three and a half seconds, everything is changed. No one can know what the future will bring. A half century can pass in the blink of an eye – don’t you think so too?

 

Virginia Woolf wrote her acclaimed novel Orlando in 1928. In it we follow the ups and downs of Orlando’s life and travels through continents and centuries. S/He is both man and woman, young and old, rich and poor. Through 400 years s/he is robbed of her illusions – and gets new ones.

 

Who then Is Orlando? Everybody, and yet unique. A poet, lover, courtier to Queen Elizabeth I, England’s ambassador to the Sultan’s court in Constantinople and modern woman.

 

Sigrid Strøm Reibo and Njål Helge Mjøs have untangled Woolf’s fantastic tale for the stage, a tale that undermines dramatic genres and challenges probability. The musical backdrop is provided by Simon Revholt, with a mix of genres and styles from elisabetanske madrigaler til glamrock’s David Bowie.

 Orlando – in his/her many manifestations – is played by Nina Ellen Ødegård. Together with a tight ensemble and powerful visuals, she’ll take us on a journey across time and geography.

 Who speaks to us? Orlando? Or the voices of history?
