A performance about nationalism, racism and Swedishness

A cottage. Two brothers meet their sister for the very first time. A little renovation follows with classic Swedish carpentry joy. But who really belongs in the cottage?

På ren svenska (In Pure Swedish) is a performance that examines what it is to be Swedish. How is a national affiliation created? How does one become Swedish? And who can join the community?

From 14 years

Motivation of the jury: 

Entertaining but not amusing. With a cheerful mood, the ensemble takes us straight into the heart of "Swedishness" and Sweden. The country where we eat pork and speak Swedish, at least the two brothers think... The convivial atmosphere is spiced up by micro-aggressions and insidious reminders of how you really do it right here, which finally makes the laughter get stuck in your throat.
