At the webpage of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things, is written about One of Us:

"Erik Ulfsby leads a Norwegian-German collaboration with the conceptual artists Lars O. Ramberg and Ditteke Waidelich. Together, they have tried to address what happened July 22.

77 persons were killed this day, in the government quarter and at Utøya. The murderer claimed to be a saviour. As a member of the Knights Templar he was to save Europe from 'the multicultural, culture-Marxist and feminist' delusion and point out the right way. His actions didn't just traumatise Norway, but shook the whole of the liberal world. The same forces are now marching in Europe, forces hailing the anti-modern. Resistance against democracy, against pluralism, feminism and globalisation was given their clearest expression through Breivik's actions, but the attitudes are gaining ground. What makes our societies so vulnerable to right-wing populistic, authoritarian attempts?"
