The anniversary year 2018, when Ingmar Bergman would have turned 100, Memory Wax celebrates Sweden's most famous film director with BREATHE, performed by artistic director Johanna Jonasson. In a sincere dialogue between introvert and extrovert, motion and silence BREATHE approaches unspoken secrets. Thoughts and memories create poetic stringency in persistently changing landscapes, in a constantly changing existence. The performance is created with the inspiration from Ingmar Bergman’s cinematic universe and premiered in Malmö (SE) 2017. Watch a trailer. Read more here.

Björn Säfsten's work LANDSCAPES OF I will be presented at Tanz im August-festival in Berlin 11, 12 and 13 Aug 2018.

LANDSCAPES OF I lingers between the personal and the fictional, the real and the fake, the biographical and the made-up. The piece investigates different states of the performers and their relationship to the audience. Through engaging shared situations of recognition and by bending their materiality new landscapes and emotional journeys occur. The work is occupied with memories, manners, reflexes, conscious and unconscious actions. A hike in the states of our self-awareness, or the lack of. A questioning of the wish to control how we present ourselves, playing with the uncertainty of a fixed reality. For full credits and more information - please read here.

LANDSCAPES OF I is created with the performers Sophie Augot, Ilyas Odman and Will Rawls and premiered in February 2018. A co-production between Säfsten Produktion and Riksteatern. For full credits and contact information - please read here.

There is a lack of public fascination with electricity, but ALTERNATING CURRENTS is here to cure that!

ALTERNATING CURRENTS is an intermedial electricity concert choreographed and performed by Maria w Horn, Stina Nyberg and a frequency-controllable Tesla coil.

The concert is one part of a long-term obsession with the inventor Nikola Tesla and the early 1900’s phenomena of touring electricity shows. Through flashing lightning bolts, the Tesla coil creates a sound which resembles distorted trance synths threading piercing melodies through ozone-filled air. In combination with dialogues reflecting on science, magic and electrocution, the concert creates a womb-like atmospheres with the lingering threat of bodily harm.

The choreographer Stina Nyberg and the composer Maria w Horn will perform ALTERNATING CURRENTS at the Norbergfestival, a festival for electronic and experimental music and art in Norberg (SE) 26-28 July 2018. Tickets and more information here.
