Swedish performances on tour
I Call my Brothers (Jag ringer mina bröder) Kulturhuset Stadsteatern Stockholm

A car has exploded in Stockholm. Amor is wandering around a paranoid city full of police. For 24 intense hours we find ourselves in Amor’s head, where the lines between criminal and victim, love and chemistry, and paranoia and reality become increasingly fuzzy. I Call my Brothers is a both scary and humorous depiction of how paranoia destroys both the person seen and the seer.

This is not a love story Gunilla Heilborn

Gorkij Park 2 Gunilla Heilborn
Gorkij Park 2 is a completely independent sequel to the 80’s thriller Gorky Park, a Hollywood story with the KGB in fur hats, filmed in Helsinki due to the cold war that was going on at the time. This show takes its starting point in the film and deals with forgotten utopias, social realism and a curiosity about what really happened at Fjodors’ party. Had some guests actually glitter around the eyes?

Marmelade Claire Parsons Co.
What is marmelade? Is it cherry, pear, figs, mint flavor, upside down, together or inside out? A delicious, sensory performance about meeting, mixing and blending. Mira and Viktor taste and feel in poetic movements and circus actions in an exquisite and visual experience together with the audience. Marmelade looks at the world through body, eye, feeling and taste in a room with fluffy skirts, soft circus and Fellini music.

Marmelade is choreographer Claire Parsons’ first dance production for young children from 2 – 6 years.
