Good Mourning! VOstBil

Information on the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show by Florence Minder.

Woman with gun

‘A probl'm? What kind of probl'm?’ Standing alone on a bare stage with just a rifle in her hands, totally nervous-and-depressed Swiss actress Florence Minder introduces an 'American version of herself' to talk about that moment in life when shit happens.

This superficial and explosive mask enables her to approach the subject of mourning without any sadness or psychology. Minder challenges herself and the audience in a radical, sharp and funny performance where, lets be clear, none of the theatrical expectations might be met... ‘Expectations? What kind of expectations?’

This performance took place on the 13-18 August 2013 as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
