Conte d’amour is video-artist-turned-theatre-maker Markus Öhrn’s remarkable voyage into darkness. It’s an involving, implicating video-play, a Lynchian exploration of familial control composed of images that resolutely cross and re-cross the border of desire and horror. Disturbing, demanding, but absolutely necessary, Conte d’amour has toured the world since its debut in 2010. It’s like a decoder ring for patriarchal madness. It’s an endurance piece that approaches a universal language as believable as it is unthinkable. (
