Inferno and paradise

The Man with no Direction

The play Mannen utan riktning (“The Man with no Direction”) is based on Dante’s the Divine Comedy. Words are not always necessary when you’re venting your feelings. The Moomsteatern stands for a powerful, visual and unique expression that can linger on in the hearts of the theatregoers long after the applause have died down. In this play (with nine actors on stage) the audience will be in for a journey through Dante’s inferno and paradise. The duo in charge of the production, Nina Jemth and Pelle Öhlund, worked together in 2010 with the highly-praised Compagnie of Strangers, That was a poetic, visual and profoundly humane experience. The newspaper Skånska Dagbladet wrote then: “magical, grotesque, beautiful, bloody, tragic, violent and warm-hearted in one big clutter”. Now the duo is looking to create similar magic with the classic the Divine Comedy – and the intention is clearly to charm the whole of Sweden, as the play will go on tour with Riksteatern.
