Dramatic text

Fox and Wolf

Once upon a time, there was a skinny Fox and an insatiable Wolf. Both had run away to the dark, gurgling wood: the Fox running from temptation, the Wolf from control. Each is the other’s greatest danger, and each is the other’s only chance.

In fragments and stories, the text investigates how people negotiate the wood between the natural and ‘ideal’ body, when torn between hiding-place and stage.

Roles: 2 (unspecified)


Development of the text was supported by Arts Council Norway and the Norwegian Centre for New Playwriting.
