Monologer från europeiska teatrar ger en bild av Europa under pandemin.

Hur ser vardagen ut för de som måste jobba vidare när allt är vänt upp och ner? Sjuksköterskor, städare, taxichaufförer och andra personer från hela Europa som arbetar i olika samhällsbärande funktioner får här tala fritt ur hjärtat om en ytterst ovanlig tid. 

I korta monologer framför skådespelare de intervjuades personliga och existentiella berättelser som bearbetats av dramatiker. 

Ett internationellt samarbete mellan teatrarna i nätverket Mitos21, initierat av Dramaten. Digital premiär 12 juni. 

Monologues from European theaters paint a picture of Europe during the pandemic.

What does everyday life look like for those who have to continue to go to work, when everything is turned upside down? Nurses, cleaners, taxi drivers and people from all over Europe who work in various community-carrying functions can in this project speak freely about this extraordinary situation.

In short monologues, based on the interviews, actors perform these personal and existential stories, adapted by local playwrights.

A collaboration between the theaters in the international Mitos21 network, initiated by the Royal Dramatic Theater, Stockholm Sweden. Digital premiere 12 June.
