NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE

Christian Wirmer performs Jon Fosse: Morning and Evening

In "Morning and Evening," Jon Fosse tells of a great theme, death. At the center of the story is a simple Norwegian fisherman whose life was sparse but still fulfilled. From this narrative, Christian Wirmer has created a touching theater monologue, in which he preserves Jon Fosse's musical, artfully rhythmic, and at the same time simple language.

Jon Fosse, born in the Norwegian coastal town of Haugesund in 1959 and raised on the Hardangerfjord. He was awarded the Literature Prize of the Nordic Council in 2015 for his prose work "Trilogy." He became internationally known for his more than thirty plays, which are performed worldwide and garnered him important awards. In 2021, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

The actor Christian Wirmer performed for 20 years in permanent ensembles, most recently at the State Theater Hannover, Theater Basel, and State Theater Darmstadt; guest appearances took him to, among others, the Contemporary Opera Berlin, State Opera Hannover, State Opera Stuttgart, Schauspielhaus Bochum. He often performs his solo programs on smaller stages and unique locations outside of theaters.

Doors open: 6:30 PM
