Daniel Sachs Playwright Award 2018 to Mattias Andersson

Mattias Andersson is the recipient of the 2018 Daniel Sachs Playwright Award for his many years at Dramaten, writing new works for the stage and especially for his play Uppenbarelsen. After having worked with documentary material for many years, Mattias returned to the text itself with this powerful original manuscript, without for a moment releasing his gaze from the relevance of the dramatic arts to our contemporary age and society. Uppenbarelsen is a highly relevant text carried by a completely unique voice and an idiom of singular luminosity. With Uppenbarelsen, Mattias Andersson returns to his own universe and continues, in his own way, to set existential and moral questions on the stage.
