On stage is a woman, a chair, a purse. The woman pulls different items out of her purse, one by one. A kind of absurd and existential stocktaking, which always starts with “I like … I”. Her entire life is folded out in front of us. She doesn´t find a lot of things, but the few things she finds is not exactly beautiful. Little by little, while the purse gradually empties, the audience is witnessing a story that doesn´t necessarily end well.

Sagliocco Ensemble presents its new project: Phillipe Dorins piece Deux mots! (Two words!), Translated to Norwegian by Christine Amadou, premieres at Showbox. French Philippe Dorin is an award-winning and significant contemporary playwright for a young audience. Dorin’s words often go to the essentials of life: how to manage to eat, to sleep, to fill the loneliness, how to not forget, to get out of trouble. The precious humor and elements of the poetic-absurd in the text also have a depth, a layer of dark seriousness and a lyrical structure one can relate to.
