Dramaten Intrepid Spirit Award – Hannes Meidal & Jens Ohlin

The 2017 Award goes to two people who, in this context, are difficult to separate. Together, they have reinterpreted, revamped, reshaped, and recreated a series of classics and stories in an incredibly unique way. Always with great respect, but simultaneously with a gaze radical enough to make the work relevant to our contemporary age. Everything begins with the text, but the scenography, costume design, and acting create all-encompassing artworks for the stage that, with classical roots, help us look at both ourselves and time in new ways. This year’s award goes to Jens Ohlin and Hannes Meidal.
