Moln

Moln is a circus performance imbued with music and inspired by the life and work of legendary Swedish poet Karin Boye. Its framework is the tale of a collection of individuals living at each other’s mercy in a sort of vacuum between childhood and adolescence. Dystopian, yet life-affirming, it moves between the ordinary and the grand.

This performance is a “dream play” that with a light and poetic touch casts itself between the dark existential abyss and the bright, light clouds that coexist inside all of us, particularly on the brink between childhood and adulthood. Stina Oscarson’s script is an experiment in form, where excerpts from Karin Boye’s poems merge into a seamless universe. These texts will in turn be set to music and sung by the artist Jonathan Johansson.

Press:

"A performance that with precise tone hits moods and emotions in Boye's work." /… / "The result is overwhelming, there is not one dead second."
– Danstidningen

"Moln is a living work of art with a range from invulnerability to anxiety to liberation" /… / "it is innovative and fresh"
– Sundsvalls Tidning
