More about The Road to Heaven

In the production program for The Road to Heaven by The Theatre of Cruelty, director Lars Øyno wrote the following, among other things:

"The Road to Heaven, where does it start? [...] This is clearly a metaphysical issue. Who am I, where do I come from? We think that this 'road' starts at adult age, approximately by 20. [...] The emptiness is around us, the human is afraid, feeling helpless in universe. What is the meaning of life? What is the end? The end is death. The Road to Heaven is death. But the title sounds fabulous. Everybody wants to go there. Advertising is unnecessary. EVERYBODY WANTS TO GO THERE."

Supported by: The Norwegian Actors' Equity Association, The Audio Visual Fund, The Fund for Performing Artists, The Norwegian Culture Fund.
