The Jon Fosse Project in China
Jon Fosse is Norway’s new Ibsen and his work also includes novels, poetry, essays and books for children. He is one of the most produced playwrights in the world and his plays have been translated into more than forty languages. He was introduced to China for the first time in 2010 with the production Someone is Going to Come.
This is a play without the traditional plot. The writer simply describes a day’s life of an ordinary family. A pregnant girl Beate went back home with her boyfriend. The event breaks the peace on the surface in the family, and everyone’s life is affected. They are embarrassed, annoyed, trying to communicate but fail. It is the most common slice of life, but the most effective manifestation of our inner world.
