The world premier of Katarina Frostenson’s “Kristallvägen” showed how effectively Visual act wagons can be in a spoken drama. The designer, Tomas Franck, placed furniture – a sofa, piano and a cupboard – on three wagons. The movement of the wagons was so quiet and smooth that the room changed in full view, even as the actors performed on and around the wagons.
The production was a great success, with the reviews ecstatic over the fantasy, clarity and virtuosity of the result.
The Gothenburg Post: “Pia Forsgrens production extends the drama’s theatrical limits. … it has become a production based on choreographic precision, where the self propelled, dancing furniture take active part.”
Svenska Dagbladet: “Pia Forsgren uses the room, static, but in motion like a carousel with sofas, to hide and to emphasize, to allow the actors to observe and be observed, aware or unaware, Yes, this is exciting, sometimes very exciting.
