World premiere of the play OLBMOT/FOLK. Olbmot/People is an artistic response to happenings from our nearpast, a result of several stories and many different people.

“Shadows from the past

something has happened that still follows us

something is stuck

some have more shadows than others”


Olbmot/Peopleis a collection of fabrications of historical events as a response to what isstill stuck and continuing. The texts consist of several glimpses from thehistory of racial biology. It moves historically over several places and times.

It doesn´t have a social policy objective, it´s not documentarism,journalism or desire for facts. The play is a result of many and differentpeople. Olbmot/People don´t have only one moral, it doesn´t point toonly one solution. It´s a collection of phrasings, words, thoughts andsubjective sounds in response to the shadows of the past.
