Sweden for Beginners is a live performance in the form of an imaginative journey through the spaces, the life and everyday world of Sweden, a way to experience beyond the power of words. Together with Anders Weberg I have used fieldrecordings and archive material to create this audiovisual live performance. The work is surrealized as an affective exposé through live improvisation. Stereotypes of Sweden, like the Bergmanesque gloom, erotica and nature romanticism will be invoked in this journey through Sweden of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
