Since 2015, an ideal theater group for unaccompanied youth is run in Dramaten’s premises. On three occasions starting 19 November at Målarsalen, the group now presents its work with the performance Processes based on Frans Kafka’s story about Josef K.

Josef K has a very bad day. Suddenly when he wakes up there are two guardians in his room. They do not know why or what crime he has committed but it is their job to explain to him that he has now been arrested. Otherwise, everything is as usual. Joseph K still has to go to school, search for a job, and hang out with friends. But after a conversation from his supervisor in court, everything begins to collapse. What is he accused of? What does the court want him to do? And what is the Process actually?

The theater group for unaccompanied youth was initiated and run by actors David Fukamachi Regnfors, Hamadi Khemiri, Jonathan Silén and Malin Janlöv. On three occasions starting 19 November at Målarsalen they play Processes, inspired by Franz Kafka’s novel Process and the participants’ own experiences.
