For Transiteatret, Tore Vagn Lid has reworked Bertold Brechts’ unfinished manuscript Fatzer into a play that was premiered at Bergen Festspillene on the 25th of Mai 2012.
Ever since its premiere the play has highly been acclaimed by critics in norway and abroad. On the 6th of December 2012, Fatzer will be shown at the Nationaltheatret in Oslo.
This will be the third time Tore Vagn Lid and Tt-B embark upon the unknown sides of Brecht’s authorship. The first two attempts gained distinction and resulted in an invitation – as the first Norwegian theatre project ever – to the Salzburg Festival with “Die Massnahme” (see critics below), and for ” Mann=Mann” TVL / Transiteatret-Bergen was awarded the Hedda Prize (The National Theatre Awards Norway) in 2008.
BEK contributes to Fatzer with equipment.
