Mythomania 9.jpg


Premiere: May 26th, 2016

Sture Bergwall was for years Sweden's most notorious serial killer. Until he turned out to be a fraud who did not commit a single murder. Based on this real person, the actors in “Mythomania” deal with the phenomenon of lies in a physical-experimental way. The piece is about walking the tightrope between storytelling and mythomania, it is about the question: what is play and what is deception?
