Denna sida upp premieres in Gothenburg!

On Friday, it’s finally time! On September 1 at 6 p.m. Emilia Wärff will take place in Kronhuset entrance with her solo Denna sida upp – a performance about the Swedish goodwill.

“My grandfather was the baker’s son. He loved school, but after six years in world of books, he had to start working in the steam from the baking oven. My other grandfather got to go to Uppsala and learn Latin, chemistry, and botany. He became a pharmacist. Somewhere there, between the scent of freshly baked bread and the glass jars in the library, I grew up. When I was turning five, a virus attached itself to my spine and concepts like muscle tone, fine motor skills and the Aid Center became a natural part of my world.”


Denna sida upp is a performance where dance meets physical theatre. Where the Aid Center’s everyday practical tools like the gripper, the shower chair and the stocking puller is transformed from mere props into dance partners. Using her own experiences as the starting point, Emilia tells a story about the Swedish benevolence that’s both abstract and absurd. All to the performance playful and rhythmic music that´s written and performed by musician and composer Anna Gustavsson, with texts by Emilia Wärff.
