The Comical Tragedy by Eve Bonfanti og Yves Hundstad is a monolog performed by Olaf Johannessen. The play is a kind of masterclass in acting. It is a playful, teasing, philosofic declaration of love for theatre and life. This is a comedy and it is funny, but also profound. Jokes and seriousness, light and darkness, life and death, eternity and the temporal, the imaginative and the concrete earthly constantly alternate.
“And I am about to die of laughter, as it turns out, several times during the show. So glorious. Almost to die of laughter (…) and then it is so embarrassing, so painful that it goes all the way in. All the way in right to the sense of existence itself (…) At times, in short: It was sublime. ” Gunnvá Zachariassen, actor and leader of TVAZZ 09.12.20 in Nón, KvF.
“and it requires … as I said … disciplined direction and an actor who masters his art to the extreme (…) this was the real art … art that makes a difference …” Carl Johan Jensen, writer, in Dimma 11.12.20
