A serious car accident made Coby a long-term patient, for one long year. She survived thanks to a skilled surgeon, good nurses, her physician-husband, her own efforts, several stomas, intravenous nutrition and a vast social network. But repeated misjudgments and missed routines threatened her life several times and led to a breach of trust in our health system.
Socially committed, she wanted to get to the roots of her experiences as their contours started to resemble a systematic pressure on all levels, with serious consequences for both health staff, patients and their families.
humoristic documentary theater
on life in and around a sickbed
intensely social and creative
and with a strangely indestructible good mood
despite pain and discomfort
Scenic means like video, music and scenography
link us to a larger picture that concerns us all,
and gives an unvarnished glimpse into the everyday life of hospitals.
And hope for the future.
Nonsense and other senses
A musical plunge into the universe of nonsense poetry, helped by the
endless possibilities of puppetry. Nonsense poetry has been around for a
long time, at times with recklessly funny reflections and statements. There
are many children who are not always kind, adults who are not always wise.
And vice versa. We have let ourselves get ensnared by the subtle humour and
cunning view in this poetic non-sense.
The show takes place in and around the "Ronzebons", a small theatre stage, with secrets and surprises, and with a varied cast of characters.
The Grand Finale
When the apocalypse hits the tiny town of Fagersund and doomsday has become a fact, not all the inhabitants are well prepared. Who will be sent up onto the Pearly Gate, who will be forced to dive into the Hellish Fire? Also our main character, photographer Belcampo, is panic-stricken, when he reflects upon his own somewhat untidy lifestyle. In Teater Fusentast's Jubilee performance (20 years) we meet Magic Lanterns projecting illustrations, live camera and the rather down-to-earth history about the population of Fagersund on The Final Day.
