We usually talk about death when someone is dead, not before. But we should talk about dying, because after birth, death is the only thing that unites us all - if you are alive, you will also die. We have become so distant from death that it has become scary. But to whom? For the dying or for those left behind? In the old days, the body was in the sauna, the coffin was in the kitchen and the deceased was in the home. Now we hide the dying in care hospitals, where they die ideally under the watchful eye of a sympathetic nurse or caregiver, but often alone. We fear something we haven't actually seen. How many of you have witnessed life leaving the body?

Do we sing and dance in the play? I don't know yet, but at a funeral you should be happy about living, no matter how short that life was. Let's start this celebration now and bring back the dignity of dying. We're going to die anyway, but that doesn't mean you have to spend your whole life in fear. Maybe we, as creators and viewers, find solace in living and joy in dying. And if not exactly joy, then one could dream of lightness.

Birgit Landberg is a bold director with a distinctive and clearly recognizable handwriting, who deals with current and socially important topics in her productions. At the same time, he is not afraid to show light to serious topics through the curved mirror of black humor, which adds lightness and playfulness to his productions.

Birgit doesn't appreciate art for art's sake, Birgit doesn't like suffering for art either.

Must Kast (Black Box), as a stage, is something that is opened for every possibility, where “theatre magic” can be born out of thin air. Must Kast, (Black Box) as a theatre, thrives from that very idea. We believe in theater, where everything is possible. We believe in theater that does not manifest itself through words but by actions. We believe in theater that grows with its audience. We believe in theater that could reach everybody, but without making any compromises in quality.
