Confession

During the Marstrand Festival at Black Box Theater in Oslo last week I saw some really nice performances. One of them was the play by Petter Goldstine and Sarai Alons entitled "Markings -the longest journey is the journey within".
While entering the stage the audience received a booklet and a felt-tip pen. The actors/performance artists had close communication with the audience and the scenes where chosen by the audience in a "pick-a-card"-manner and the scenes referred to a page in the booklet that we had to look up and read, look at or follow instructions. One of the pages contained a small confession form that we were supposed to fill in and tick boxes. This was not handed in after the play but was merely an exercise to clear things for ourselves.
