Gunilla Heilborn "Merkurius"
MDT have been working with Gunilla Heilborn in different ways over many years, and this is the first time in the framework of an LLB co-production. This new piece, Merkurius, is a co-production between LLB, MDT, Norrlandsoperan in Umeå and Regionteatern Blekinge Kronoberg in the south of Sweden.
About the piece:
A solo show with Kristiina Viiala by Gunilla Heilborn
– technology, entertainment and communication.
The wonderfully distant planet Mercury is said to affect our communication, our intelligence, our technology and our social interactions. In addition, Mercury has an extra gig as the messenger of the gods and as such has the task of delivering both good and bad news. The solo show Merkurius/ Mercury with Kristiina Viiala on stage, addresses all these aspects, as well as the desire of some people to move into space.
