Peer Gynt: Who are you?
The Boyg: Myself. Can you say the same?
The Boyg is the voice within that whispers go around, preventing you from facing yourself, suffocating progress and initiative. A six minute visual and musical remix of Ibsen's Peer Gynt, Norwegian Folklore, Edvard Grieg's composition, paralyzing panic attacks and The Great Boyg itself who finds us all.
