A Storm Louder Than Everyone Else
Posted on December 10th, 2022 by Alex Sigrist
Trigger Warning: The performance includes flashing lights, loud noises, suicidal ideation
A rainy day in a pub by the sea. The rain is getting heavier, the waves are getting bigger. Pete, a lonely traveller, takes shelter in the pub, where he meets Mikka, the headstrong landlord. They are joined by Bjorn, a stubborn fisherman, and Lara and Max, a young couple whose relationship is on the brink of collapse. Soon the storm traps them in the pub and they must find a way to survive the night.
A Storm Louder than Everyone Else pits five individuals against what could be the end of their lives. Either the storm will kill them – or they will kill each other. Trapped in a small space, they have no choice but to explore how they feel about each other.
As Satre put it: Hell, these are other people. But they could also be our salvation.
A Storm Louder Than Everyone Else Premiers on May 31 at the Tojo Theater in Bern.
The tickets cost CHF 15 (students, AHV), CHF 20 (Normal), CHF 25 (Donors). Please pay with cash at the Tojo Theater Reitschule.
