Christer & Krapp

Duration: 7 min.
Format: Video
Year: 2004

This video is a staged portrait of the actor Christer Strandberg with Samuel Beckett’s character Krapp from Krapp’s Last Tape as a constant present accompaniment. Christer is performing parts of the play in parallel with autobiographical material, Christer and Krapp’s reflections and personalities becomes intertwined. The dialogue compares the ways that both theatre and reality deal with existential questions of everyday life. In Beckett’s play, Krapp is reviewing old tape recordings of himself speaking about his life. Having to confront yourself as a reproduction in a different form is something Krapp and Christer have in common.
