My Wife got Angry

Ojasoo/Semper

tickets | video

The impetus for Tiit Ojasoo’s and Ene-Liis Semper‘s My Wife Got Angry came from the feeling that our lives slip away through our fingers and there is nothing you can do about it. You can write down the most beautiful moments of life. Photograph them. Remember them. Film them. Record them. Tell others about them. But that isn’t enough. We want to relive those moments again and again.
We have said that this play is a “comedy about loneliness”. Indeed. Yet it is also a critical play about what happens when a lifestyle that was previously attainable only for the few becomes a consumer product. What happens when our wish to prolong our existence in space and time is unexpectedly within reach for all?
Tourism originated when the offspring of nobles made journeys lasting several years to Southern Europe to the sources of cultural treasures. These trips were costly and elegant. This is no longer true nowadays. By flying via Riga, Egypt, Rome or Berlin is accessible to everyone. This is our extension in space. The perpetuation of oneself by the painting of a portrait, photography, filming or the recording of one’s voice was within the means of only the few. This is no longer true nowadays. Every one of us has a device in our pocket that allows us to do all of that. This is our extension in time. Yet why do we do this? The answer is funny. And sad.
