MENS REA (/ˈmɛnz ˈreɪə/; Law Latin for “guilty mind”)

actus reus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea – “the act is not culpable unless the mind is guilty”

When does someone become evil? Can evil acts be justified? And who draws the line between good and evil?

Award-winning actor and playwright Rebecka Pershagen - Artist returns to Stockholm Fringe 2020 with her most provocative work to date. In a multi artwork where audio, video and scenic monologue meet, the mechanisms of human evil, guilt and regret are explored.

WHAT IS STOFF? Stockholm Fringe Festival (STOFF) is a five-day multidisciplinary arts festival, acting as a ‘stage’ for local and international artists to present their innovative work ranging from performance to installation art and anything in between. The festival stands for artistic freedom and focuses on out-of-the-box and “alternative” works that may not fit into mainstream performance or exhibition spaces.
