Book reading with drums

Motor–Jonsson

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.
