PHANTOM PERSONA OR MONICA EMILIE HERSTAD

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 10:28 pm

–Last Friday I went to Patravadi Theater to see some performances, including PAST IS SIMULATION – THE LADIES OF THE SEA VS. NORA, AND OTHER STORIES OF THE SOCIETY, directed by Monica Emilie Herstad from Norway. The performance is inspired by the writings of Henrik Ibsen, Susan Sontag, and Elfriede Jelinek. I like it a lot. It is now one of my most favorite stage performances of all time. I don’t know how to describe it. I think I can say that its power is like the power of PHANTOM LOVE (2007, Nina Menkes) mixing with the power of PERSONA (1966, Ingmar Bergman).

This is a clip from PAST IS SIMULATION:

–This is a short film called THE LITTLE CHAOS (1966, Rainer Werner Fassbinder). Thanks a lot to Filmsick who told us about it.
