Workshop with Poste Restante, May 14th - 15th 2016
Poste Restante is a Swedish performance group and the artistic collaboration between Erik Berg, Linn Hilda Lamberg and Stefan Åkesson. Since 2007 Poste Restante has produced numerous large scale performances and has been presented at festivals such as Baltic Circle (FI), Santiago a Mil (CL) and Salzburger Festspiele (AT). Their most recent productionThe Leviathan Camaraderie premièred in October 2015 in Stockholm.
In Poste Restante’s work the individual visitor holds the position of being the centre, the main character and final receiver. The performances often take the form an unexpected but sincere organisation or institution, where the visitor is placed at the heart of an ongoing dilemma. Rather than finding solutions to these conflicts, their work aim to legitimize the problem and to act as a catalyst for deep reflection on difficult questions and scenarios. Information is always clear and the participation concrete. Met with respect for her specific conditions and challenges, each visitor is offered an opportunity to think complicated thoughts all way through as well as courage to take his or her emotions seriously.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
