FUGLANE – A production by Det Norske Teatret

Mattis lives with his sister Hege in a cottage by the lake. She is 40 and he is 37. Hege makes a little money from selling knitwear. Mattis is near to the wild heart of life. The world is a hostile place and, according to Mattis, people don’t mean what they say. A simpleton, a weirdo, a child imprisoned in the body of an adult man, Mattis muses over the factors that separate him from the rest of the small community of the nameless village.
