FUNNY - FUNNYSORRY - FUNNYSORRYJESUS
HOW IT PASSED BY.
Baktruppen have a small office in Oslo. It used to be a shop and has a large window facing the dead end street Dælenenggata. In 2003 Baktruppen remade the office into a multi-functional grandstand for the audience to sit and watch things that are often ignored.
Like asphalt. Pretty dull. Then it appears that the basket in which Moses came drifting down the Nile was daubed with asphalt. FUNNY. If it wasn't for the asphalt, little Moses would have drowned and there wouldn't be a single commandment. Hark! Asphalt makes a difference.
After FUNNY came FUNNYSORRY. Wearing identical bald old male masks Baktruppen wondered why modernism isn't mentioned in any of the main encyclopedias. And then there was a recreation of Adam and Eve and the Fall of Man.
FUNNYSORRYJESUS was a communion act based on the Last Supper and Christ's Ascension. Baktruppen consumed flesh and blood and went to heaven and back in less than one hour. What more can one say? Hallelujah?
Finally these three performances merged into one big FUNNYSORRYJESUS.
