"Emellan oss": om de svenska uppsättningarna av Witold Gombrowicz Vigseln

Abstract [en]

The title ”Between Ourselves” alludes to one of the most important problems in Witold Gombrowicz's writings which finds full expression in his drama ”The Wedding” - that our thoughts and actions arise between us without our knowing where they will lead us. My study is concerned with productions of this drama in Sweden. They were three in number, and all staged between the years 1966 and 1969, during a time rich in political activities and tensions. Gombrowicz's drama is full of nuances and can be interpreted in many different ways. However, it is not a political drama, just as Gombrowicz's writings cannot be regarded as political. This study is concerned with the scenic interpretations of the drama: that which the theatres conveyed to their public; with which artistic means they took place and how the theatre critics received and commented on the performances of ”The Wedding”. In addition, the director's intentions are examined and endeavours are made to determine if the stage presentations have supported or opposed them. The political climate of the time has in different ways set its stamp on the three productions, directed by Alf Sjöberg, Ulf Gran and Ulf Fredriksson, which among themselves were very different from each other, both from the point of view of their content and form. The most nuance rich was the production at the Royal Dramatic Theatre directed by Alf Sjöberg. That production became a ”theatrum mundi”, where all the means of theatrical art were brought into play.
