By on January 11, 2017

Frida Röhl sets up Dumma jävla mås an acclaimed newly written version of Chekhov’s classic The Seagull, translated by the author and journalist Bengt Ohlsson. Thalia prizewinner Nils Poletti makes his debut at the Culture City Theatre in the role of Constantine. In other roles Katarina Ewerlöf, Sven Ahlström, Kristofer Kamiyasu, Kirsti Stubø, Niklas Falk and Maja Rung. The internationally acclaimed and albumscurrent Gothenburg duo BF/C has written music for the show. European Premiere January 27.

Dumma jävla mås is a modern version of The Seagull, Chekhov’s immortal classics of the actress Arkadina, and her son Konstantin, who wants to become a playwright, and who loves the young Nina, she wants to be an actress, but falling into the arms of Arkadinas lover, the famous writer and cynic Trigorin. A love and lifecarousel that goes toward disaster. The same action, the same desire for love and art, with a contemporary filter over everything.

It’s about love. But what is love? Today we live in a culture where we can buy us free from the hurts, which costs a sacrifice. We drink alcoholic beer, eat sugar-free candy, but love costs, the one in love falls handless. But dare modern day people fall? Our performance is anti-romantic, the unhappy in love human is stuck in the idea of itself, says Frida Röhl.

The play is written by award-winning the american playwright Aaron Posner, known for his classic interpretations.
The music to the performance will be available on Spotify after the premiere January 27
