A jet-black parable by the Danish Oscar-winning screenwriter and film director A. T. Jensen turned into a musical.
Neo-Nazi Adam is following a reintegration programme in a remote community led by Ivan, a clergyman with an unshakable belief in mankind. In response to Ivan's request that he set himself a positive goal, Adam decides to bake a cake with apples from Ivan's garden. This turns out not to be so straightforward. As well as the kleptomaniac-rapist Gunnar, the gangster Khalid, the pregnant alchoholic Sarah and Adam's skinhead friends, the devil also throws a spanner in the works. Or is it God?
Adam's Appels is the first co-production between Olympique Dramatique and Dominique Pauwels (LOD), who turn this jet-black parable by the Danish Oscar-winning screenwriter and film director A.T. Jensen into a musical. Assisted by Annette Malherbe, Koen De Graeve and a couple of musicians, the Olympiquers take you with them on an insane journey through the world of good and evil, in which not a single conviction is left standing. Welcome to that world!
