There are times of the I, and there are times of the We. Eras in which we are concerned with community, and eras in which the belief in the individual determines the spirit of the times». Today, promoted and reinforced by media and mainstream popular culture, we make room for the narcissist in its most extreme form.

Egoland is a Swedish-Cypriot-German Collaboration under the direction of Achim Wieland which investigates our complex “Ego” and the subtle impersonal and global forces which leave us exposed and vulnerable to any new dogma, political movement, religion, populist sentiment or heroic figure. Where is the threshold in which we accept oppressive behavior, forfeit individual freedom for national interests, eventually excuse even the most atrocious acts of injustice and violence?

The devised performance questions our motivations and choices to live as critical πολίτες (citizens) or to remain lost particles in a silent mass, pulsing to the rhythms of powerful forces we cannot understand, partake in, or reply to.

Walking the tightrope of fiction, true story and “alternative fact”, Egoland entangles its audience in a volatile mix of celebrities, dogmas, nationalistic ideals and role models against a backdrop of an eroding sense of community and populist rage.

Reviews

The amazing Alexandersson (how did director Achim Wieland find such a treasure?), participates in this study with openness and dedication, ceremonial concentration and audacity. Phileleftheros Newspaper

Wieland’s precise direction gave the performer a restrictive freedom and at the same time a dominant cognitive approach in the search of a personal morality, which in its depths aims straight at our collective truth. Phileleftheros Newspaper
