Theatre Plexus Polaire, France / Norway: Ashes

Premiere in Denmark.

Ashes is a visual show inspired by the novel Before I burn by Gaute Heivoll.

Ashes is the story of a pyromaniac who in 1978, the year of the author’s birth, ravaged a village in the South of Norway.

While recounting this true story, elements of the writer`s own story appear. The two parallel narratives intersect, the meeting created by mirrors and echoes, thereby illustrating the faults present in the human soul and the fine line between sanity and madness.

Gaute Heivoll is a Norwegian author born in 1978.

His work includes poetry, children’s fiction, journalism and novels. He is the recipient of many awards and is widely regarded as one of Scandinavia’s foremost writers.

His novel Before I burn was translated into more than twenty languages.

« The story tells us about internal battles, heart-rending fights against this devil in flame
this monster which wants to take control »
