FLAMMENWERFER is Hotel Pro Forma’s new musical-dramatical performance on the famous Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Hill (1849-1911), his life and art. Hill lived with the diagnosis schizophrenic paranoia isolated from the rest of the world in the last years of his life.
FLAMMENWERFER is based on Hills beautiful, poignant, and strong artworks from this period of illness, where dissolution of reality, nature, paranoia, megalomania, and longing for something else characterize his life.
On stage: Blixa Bargeld and vocal ensemble IKI
IKI: Johanna Sulkunen, Guro Tveitnes, Kamilla Kovacs, Randi Pontoppidan and Jullie Hjetland
