Nina-Maria Häggblom: Minnesbyrån

Price: 0 Length: entire festival day Language: Swedish

Have you ever wanted to change your past? To make amends with someone who hurt you?

Minnesbyrån is an experiment on what an interactive and digital theatre piece could look like. In the work, reality and fantasy are woven together on an imagined ferry trip where the participant can decide how the story takes place. The piece is performed by a chatbot on Facebook Messenger, and the interaction takes place between a person and a computer program.

Minnesbyrån was developed in connection with Labbet r.f.’s residence playwright program.

Nina-Maria Häggblom is a Helsinki-based playwright and dramaturgist who often explores borders, expectations, longing and tragicomic angles. Häggblom was chosen as Labbet r.f.’s first residence playwright, and she currently works as a temporary dramaturgist at Svenska Teatern.
