The Visionary/Martyrdom 1:77 – 2015

About This Project

A man that studieth revenge keeps his own wounds green
– Francis Bacon

To wake up in the baron’s bed can be both delightful and risky. One might get ideas. We fear the outcasts, because they are unpredictable in their actions and are a reminder of everything that can go wrong.

Jeppe regularly wakes up in heavenly hell,– an outcast scapegoat and unruly king. He finds himself in states of chaotic delirium, open to visionairy ideas and dystopian pondering. Exposed to the everyday he is incapable of wanting what he wants, and becomes a symptom of a constrained world.

The performance is inspired by Jeppe på Bjerget by Ludvig Holberg; the story of a miserable man seeking refuge in a world of intoxication despite his wife’s efforts to knock some sense into him.
