It knows no decline

Script based performance for one person at the time during Bar Drama (curated by Flavia Badioli) on the 13th of June at Moderna Bar. Photographs above by Valentin Brutaru. 

 

The script performed accounts for a humorous yet somber tale about regal figurehead carver Johan Törnström, and his great grandfather's peculiar involvement in the décor of one of the grandest battleships in Nordic history. Revolving around the Vasa mythos, the performance touches on subjects like full spectrum dominance, the sovereign state, mighty seraphime blues and how the legendary maiden voyage may have had serious fundamental impacts on the Swedish language as we know it today.
