Denna sida upp
Welcome to Denna sida upp – a performance about the Swedish benevolence (and the fast service, and the shoe cover).
A heartfelt welcome to all of you. You are all of course very welcome to the limitations, the luxury, the Swedishness and the safety.
In dancer Emilia Wärff’s solo performance Denna sida upp (This Side Up) you are invited into the warm embrace of benevolence. In the performance you will meet the Aid Center’s vast offer of amazing products, all meant to ease our daily tribulations.
“The embracer” gives you a sense of peace and quiet and “Small banana, red 5023” offers support behind shoulders and neck for those with arched chest. But please remember to speak into the microphone so that everyone can hear what you’re saying. It’s important that everyone at least feels included.
Using her own experiences as the starting point, and with the gripper at hand, Emilia tells a story about the Swedish model that’s both abstract and absurd. Denna sida upp is a performance where function becomes form, where the Aid Central’s everyday selection is elevated, shifted, and transformed into something dreamy, headstrong, and beautiful. All of it to the rhythmic and playful music of musician and composer Anna Gustavsson.
Denna sida upp premieres on March 8, 2023 at Ulricehamn´s library.
Let the stocking puller catch your ankle!
