Radioart in collaboration with Accelerator 

RED DOC> by Anne Carson

iceland photo ac_edited.png

A radiophonic staging of 

Anne Carson's prose poem Red Doc>

for seven actors and five musicians.

Performed in Swedish, translation Mara Lee.

Red Doc> is a lyrical road trip that meanders north through a frozen landscape of meadows, glaciers, volcanic terrain and a psychiatric clinic. Time passes, bodies and thoughts change, all that remains is sadness and a longing for love. The book is a sequel to Autobiography of Red, which introduced Anne Carson to Swedish readers. It tells the story of the young boy Geryon and his unfortunate passion for the beautiful, treacherous Heracles. In Red doc> the two meet again, years later – now as G and Sad. When the end comes, they are at G’s mother’s deathbed. “He turns away. This roaring air in his arms.”

In Swedish: A talk with translator Mara Lee and Magnus Florin
00:00 / 33:03

The performance Red Doc> opened at Accelerator on February 3

RADIOARTis a digital stage for Swedish and international radio drama, sound theater and audio art. It provides a platform for newly written and composed works as well as interpretations of classic drama, creates a forum for voices of poetry and politics and allows for genuine experimentation in the world of sound.

RADIOART is run by a group of artists with diverse professional experience in theater, music, art and literature. Some of us work with large established theatres, others with independent groups, in music and art, both in Sweden and internationally. The reason why we are involved in this project is that radio is still a completely open, democratic, free, dynamic, intense and endlessly experimental means of expression. Its effects are direct, and it emerges out of the very lack of the physical. Without images, actors’ movements, space and colour, it is the listener's own body that comes into focus – this is where it takes form!
