Scenrecension: For tangled and cryptic and  Rocky horror show

When the new working and director Nils Poletti, together with the group Ramaj put up the seventies queer kultmusikal ”Rocky horror show” at Östgötateatern is the angle of the local and political escalated right from the start.

The newly engaged couple Brad and Janet have been Tommy and Annika, as prim and proper as the siblings in ”Pippi Longstocking”. And while they are running around in the storm it is someone calling in to P1 in the car and harp on about ”everything is the immigrants ' fault”. Then they get a flat tire, seek help at the nearest castle and ends up in the middle of an erotic nightmare of the professor and the transvestite Frank n Furter from the planet Transexual, Transylvania.

the muscular shape is this ”science-hen” the opposite of Tim Currys white, feminine revelation that has become the closest synonym with the role thanks to the film version of ”the Rocky horror picture show”. Richard O'brien's musical was heavily influenced by glamrockerans androgynous rymdkapplöpning and playing at the same time, with all the horror and science fiction genre, from Dracula to Frankenstein. Here, also, the ”Motorsågsmassakern”. The plot itself is basically thin, but packed with bizarre excesses, blood and filth. Not least when Tommy (David Sigfridsson) and Annika (Elin Skarin) reaches his sexual redemption with both fetischprylar and naked tits.

To Frank n Furter's creation, Rocky (Viktor Björkberg) is not a muskelpudding, without an anxious jättebebis in grisrosa sammetsbody gives the criticism of the manlighetsideal even a comic twist. But many times it feels as if the Poletti't really left the Turteatern. In short, as the river stångån turned into a friteatergrupp with too big a budget. There are simply too many whim and markers that should have been deleted at the concept stage, but as subject to uninhibited on stage and strösslar question mark after it.

and symbols in Mark Granqvists scenographic storbygge with several floors, slaktrum and videokulisser. In combination with Lena Lindgren's sprawling costume design, where corsets, rubber gloves, and Mickey Mouse-ears meets dalahästdräkter getting this set, both cryptic and intrycksöverlastad. Poletti and Janne Tavares Swedish translation takes so many liberties that it is, despite good singing and acting, and Karl Dyalls creative choreography, also dramaturgical tangled.

the Team will of course have a right to högerkonservativa forces is today's imminent threats against the norm-breaking or the so-called ”genusflummet”, that Poletti himself puts it in an interview on the theatre's website. It is certainly the aliens – Frank n Furter and his companion Magenta (Andreas Österberg) and Riff Raff (Shirin Golchin) – just immigrants who face two inhibited Svenssontyper. Therefore, it is of course also possible to let the possible ufo-research-Dr. Scott (Sven Angleflod) roll out in a wheelchair as a Hitler-copy with twitching in one arm.

at the same time, emphasise the clash of cultures becomes this queer frigörelsestoryn paradoxically, the more one-dimensional and the plot is effektsökande. Reading it feels simply not färdigtänkt and often lose the balance between the merry and the macabre.

both the strong and evocative impression do otherwise William Wahlstedts eerily skrockande narrator who occasionally pops up on the scene in this vuxensaga. As well as the musicians, under the direction of conductor Charlie Malmberg, the old theatre itself to vibrate with both the rock’n’roll and spejsade synthljud.
