Enginn hittir einhvern (2016)

Enginn hittir einhvern – a theatre play by Peter Asmussen performed in Iceland in 2016

No-one meets someone by Peter Asmussen (org. title in Danish Ingen Møder Nogen) is an intense chamber play which brings us deep under the skin of two passionate and longing people; trapped as they are in the patterns and delusions of a relationship.
”No-one meets someone is a powerful, passionate and uncompromising play. Peter Asmussen is a language equilibrist who takes us on a beautiful and highly unsettling journey to the uncanny. In sixteen short scenes carried out with equally humorous, poetic and brutal encounters Asmussen investigates the relationship of A Man and A Woman who fight to maintain compassion, dignity and identity, when communication has lost its means. Apparently we meet two perfectly normal creatures. Nice, civilised citizens who are being confronted with five recognisable situations in any relationship; meetings, waiting, deceit, loneliness and endings. Asmussen uses language as a scalpel and he dissects highly complex and eternally crucial questions of existence and thus the damned notion of death. ” Mads Thygesen, Simon Boberg & Mia Lipschitz
