The Dream of a Ridiculous Man

Human Search for Truth Teater – Oplevelser til eftertanke


Accompanied by Danish leading accordionist Adam Ørvad, we meet the preacher — the ridiculous man. He has surrendered to life’s indifference and in a dream he shoots himself in the heart. The shot opens the door to the kingdom of death and leads him to Paradise, where the ridiculous man gains insight into the truth about humanity. He discovers the truth that we are all guilty of human decay and that we are only able to love and live as we recognize this fault.
