My Love Lies Frozen in the Ice

 

Review


In 1897, a failed Swedish exhibition to the North Pole ends in nothing but frozen despair. Lead by scientist Salomon Andre, a team of explorers attempted to reach the North Pole by hot air balloon while leaving a woman by the name of Matilda who will not forget them. Even 33 years after they set out, Matilda still believes she will see her brother Salomon and her lover Nils again. While the premise of the play seems like a performance that will leave you feeling morose, the actors from Dead Rabbits Theatre have fun and keep it somewhat lighthearted. The doctors in Stockholm tell Matilda all hope is lost, but she won't listen. Instead she hallucinates and is driven to the point of hilarious madness involving a polar bear. The transitions between scenes are impeccable and constructed from a single large white sheet that covers the stage. The sheet becomes mounds of snow, water, and at one point a wedding dress. It's not often a play will take you from cheerfulness to sadness to contemplation in the span of an hour, but My Love Lies Frozen in the Ice does exactly that. Reviewed by Stephan Boissonneault.
