BRÅK – PotatoPotato
When was the last time you quarreled? Did you lose it? Did you get too shitty? Did you feel stupid? Do you want to feel less alone and laugh at the misery?
BRÅK is a four-hour quarrel between four actors. In BRÅK all phases of the quarrel, qualities and actions are embodied. BRÅK is catharsis without peripetia, an eternal lingering disagreement. BRÅK is a chamber play that revolves around the very core of the drama – the conflict. And to digest the impressions: a bluegrass band!
Go to the bathroom before it starts, bring a snack in the salon. Four hours has never passed so fast and you do not want to miss a second.
BRÅK is produced by PotatoPotato in the spring of 2021, and according to PotatoPotato’s method, the actors’ personal expressions, experiences and perspectives have influenced both the content and form of the set. BRÅK will be played in Stockholm and Malmö in the spring of 2022.
