"Dramatikerna Lars Norén and Jon Fosse directs both harsh criticism against the royal Dramatic theatre's board of directors after the decision to terminate the working Eirik Stubø."
"I despise you,” writes Lars Norén, in a letter, citing the SvD."
"Lars Norén, whose performance of ”Andante” right now played at the royal dramatic theatre, has written a letter to the board of directors. He does not want to reproduce the letter in its entirety to the Swedish newspaper svenska Dagbladet. He wants to instead save to their fourth diary. However, he tells the magazine about her views:"
"– What the board has been able to achieve is a tremendous loss for the american theatre. Instead of supporting Eirik in the process of changing the historic ojämlikhetskulturen previously teaterchefer have been indifferent to, have fled from their responsibilities and leave behind a moral augiasstall (something very neglected, ed.). I have told them what I think of them: I despise you, " he says to Svenska Dagbladet."
"the' Artistic disaster '"
"He also believes that the image presented in the media of the closure of the Jenny andreasson's sculpture ”Hamlet” has been simplified. The royal dramatic theatre's management communicated externally that the show was shut down because the Andreasson was sick. In an interview in Today's News told Andreasson that in fact she was healthy but was silenced."
"– ”Hamlet” was shut down because it was an artistic disaster, " says Norén to the newspaper."
"Even the Norwegian playwright Jon Fosse has written a letter to the Metro board of directors:
"”Seen from the outside, from Norway, it seems as if the man now in Sweden – with a kind of populism in the bottom – wish to break down the cultural institutions that have given both Sweden and the Nordic countries a higher level of art and reverence. First it was the municipal theatre, then it was the Swedish Academy and the Nobel peace prize and now also the royal dramatic theatre, soiled,” writes Jon Fosse in an e-mail to SvD."
"Fosse continued, ”I shake despondently on the head and do not understand what kind of destructive forces raging in Sweden now”."
