Aniara: fragments of time and space is Klockriketeaterns biggest work to date. Aniara is a choral theater piece and a co-production with the Grammy Award winning chamber choir The Crossing (USA). This cosmic tale is based on Harry Martinsons epic novel.

The fictitious rendezvous between Marat and de Sade is organized by the patients of Charenton mental hospital. They are preparing a play about Marat’s death and the historical circumstances that led to it. The play is directed by de Sade – who is a Charenton patient himself.
