Lars Norén’s Andante takes place in the last room where even remains of life-lies and class differences refuse to let go. It’s about aging, memories and parting. First performance on the Little Stage on March 1st.

Andante is the first movement in Lars Norén’s non-linear trilogy about aging. Trilogin’s other movements have already had their first performance in Stockholm and Paris. The second movement Winter music directed by Sofia Jupither at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern 2017 and the last movement Poussière (Stoft) directed by Lars Norén himself at Comédie-Française in the spring of 2018.

Andante takes place in a service home with a number of people who are merged but who have not chosen each other and where they still set up after old hierarchies.

– It starts realistically but ends in a nightmare, says Lars Norén.

For both text and director stands Lars Norén, one of the foremost figures of the modern Swedish theater. Norén’s plays have been played extensively at Dramaten, most recently the drama Autumn and Winter on the Little Stage directed by Stefan Larsson. At Dramaten he was most recently the director of his own work Stilla liv at Elverket 2017.
