Fool''s Dance

Morten Kjems Juhl, Denmark, 2003

12 min.DK/Short fiction

The company board confiscated Zigbrandtsen, the old archivist¿s, transistor radio, depriving him of his music and dreams - the only things left in his life. Then suddenly the door in his filing cabinet opens up a world of adventure, which Zigbrandtsen and Motanze, the company¿s lowly yard sweeper, venture into. In this newly discovered world the two outcasts engage in a dance against the unfairness of life, and the world¿s lack of imagination, finding joy, which the real world lacks¿ and not least, the courage to confront the cruel oppressive dictatorship, which the board represents.
