SYSTEM ERROR at Teater Manu
Finding love is hard. Especially when risking everything on a blind date… SYSTEM ERROR is playing at the National Deaf Teatre, Teater Manu in Oslo!
Things don’t always go as planned, neither in the real nor the digital world. Unfortunately, the undo button only works in the digital world. Why shouldn’t people have the right to re-start or heedlessly blame system errors?
SYSTEM ERROR is the first production Teater Manu and Jo Strømgren Kompani creates together, addressing our times’ increasing need for the good conversation. Meetings between people are constantly complicated by linguistic challenges, digital mediums, and new norms for what’s accepted to talk about and not.
The performance is neither a moral lesson nor a scrutiny into sociology, but rather an attempt to mirror a melodramatic era with big emotions and no content. Jo Strømgren’s dramas always aim to reveal the banalities of modern human behaviour.
The performance will run until Heddadagene in June.
