“… a very moving performance… indefatigable imagination and questioning” / Svenska Dagbladet

“Above all, Magnus-Maria is a truly humorous performance, where gender clichés are bandied by a repressive chorus of goats… It is as though the entire performance has liberated itself.” / Expressen

“Osten’s deft sparring partner Ann-Sofie Bárány has ensured that the narrative is cohesive… A performance that very neatly raises the issue of why the undecided gender is provoking…” / Dagens Nyheter


The libretto has been translated into English.
