A short story from Brobyggarna (“Bringde builders”) by Sune Jonsson is read aloud accompanied by dynamic and powerful drumming.
“During the fall, Motor-Jonsson was a genuine seeker. His body started to show weaknesses which to him felt fatal and life threatening. His thoughts were often about death.”
The story is about amotor-engine draisine driver who wants salvation to be a peaceful bridge connecting life with death.
Interpreted by Marianne Folkedotter and Hannes Sigfridsson.
The performance is a collaboration between Västerbottens museum, Norrlandsoperan and Västerbottensteatern.
Text and music: Peter Engkvist and Joakim Milder.
