Tigern

Sofia Jupither - text Gianina Cărbunariu

Premiere on september 4th 2015 | Stockholm, Dramaten

A European Mockumentary

'The story we are about to perform tonight is the story of a Siberian tiger born in a beautiful medium-size city in Europe. We have been there, making the attempt to document every single step this feline took from the moment she left her cage!'

An average European town. A beautiful medieval square, sidewalk cafés, pigeons, passers-by, tourists, homeless people… An ordinary town, where everything is as it always has been, until suddenly something out of the ordinary happens.

A tiger escapes from the zoo. From this real event, when a Siberian tiger created chaos in a European town, the Romanian dramatist Gianina Cărbunariu constructs a witty, playful and political tale of our time. With humour, tenderness and intelligence Tigern portrays how anxieties for the future may alter our attitudes and relationships with the people surrounding us.
