The Pelican, one of the most well-known dramas of the outstanding Swedish playwright August Strindberg, is directed by Alexa Felix from a new and sensitive perspective. It is a staggering performance that offers the actors exciting challenges.
“The performance is the image of the world we live in: cynical, full of latent aggression that sometimes breaks out from the depths. It is a play about spiritual devastation and self-destruction. Strindberg is relevant to the core, especially because he expounds a family apocalypse through borderline cases presented with black humour. When hope dies and illusions are useless, the world of emotions and extreme feelings starts.
I have explored this strange world of The Pelican together with a team of excellent actors.”
