Public People’s Enemy

Public People's Enemy

A workshop collaboration between the American actor Robert M. Johanson, Sibyl Kempson, and Teater Ibsen/Ibsen Awards. A very irresponsible, Walter Benjamin-inspired word-for word translation of Ibsen’s “Enemy of the People” joined with various depictions of the-town-hall-meeting-gone-awry from American pop-culture – including video documentations of local governments and drawing from JAWS, The Oprah Winfrey Show and the wildly uninformed political speeches of US presidential candidate Donald Trump.
