The Mistress Dispeller
solo show
Podium, Oslo

Mistress dispellers are becoming increasingly popular in China. They specialize in ending married men's affairs with their lovers. A mistress dispeller does this by befriending the mistress in question. They might then get them a new job or a new lover elsewhere.

Earlier this year, I found out that my friend’s boyfriend was being unfaithful. At Podium, I tell the story about what happened when I hired a mistress dispeller to save my friend’s relationship.

In Podium’s restroom you can also wash your hands with a soap that Miriam Myrstad has made from the ashes of the best-selling book by Dr. Gary Chapman «The 5 Love Languages – The Secret to Love That Lasts».
