This grotesque horror story isn’t for the faint at heart, but a boon for visual-art fans and those wanting to renew their love for theater.

A museum is exhibiting mysterious objects from outer space or the past. “You may touch it,” the museum guard says to Margit, a visitor. “Feel inside.” Margit puts her finger into one of the objects and screams. Then things start to get bloody…

MUMMY BROWN is the second part of Susie Wang’s horror trilogy about the human relationship to nature, centering on the female body. The group consists partly of members of legendary Baktruppen, who made theater history as a pioneering group for post-dramatic theater by enthusiastically destroying almost all stage standards between 1986 and 2011. As Susie Wang they are now building a new kind of dramatic theater out of the wreckage they themselves wrought, passionately pulling people over into an absurd, grotesque world. In MUMMY BROWN, they mix theater illusion and body horror with a humorously dark fantasy to create a most exciting theater piece. This grotesque horror story isn’t for the faint at heart, but a boon for visual-art fans and those wanting to renew their love for theater.


“This performance is fundamentally different from anything I’ve seen before. Its allegories urges you to interpret. Yet it is corny, bloody and blunt. However, it is within this bluntness you find the magic of it all.“ Scenekunst.no
