Punishment

The boardgame from Hordaland Theatre's production Punishment, 2012

Punishment - Game of Sorrow (2012) is a production by Hordaland Theatre. Punishment was a mourning play by Tore Vagn Lid, who also directed the production.

Punishment was the first part of Tore Vagn Lid's Game of Sorrow trilogy. The second play was Kill them all! at The National Theatre in 2013, the third was The Gospel of Judas during The Ultima Festival at The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet in 2013.

The mourning plays have no "actors" and no "musicians", no "singers", but only players, or performers. Inspired by the old board games' rules and narratives, the aim has been to find an expression reconciling a societal overview with existential insight, to seek the individual in the system and the system in the individual, and to seek contexts and rules that unite seemingly isolated and individual destinies in one and the same game.
