Event Series Event Series (See All)

In the performance “1974”, Swedish theatre makers Jenny Möller Jensen (b. 1985) and Ebba Petrén (b. 1988) take the audience back to 1970s Stockholm. Or at least, their quite well informed fantasy about it. They serve as a reflective mirror to our time.

Half a century ago, in the year 1974 Sweden got it’s first cultural political programme, aiming for diversity and progression. Today, art is politically valued somewhat differently: like a basic industry akin to iron and wood. The ongoing debate in Sweden concerning how economic support influence artistic freedom provides crucial context for this performance. As crucial is the two artists burning desire to work together like it’s their last chance.

The production is a collaboration between the PotatoPotato and Nyxxx, two artist collectives that have played an active role in shaping the professional independent performing arts scene in Sweden during the last fifteen years.

Jensen is an actress and curator interested in creating situations and context with a strong physical presence and to work in processes with an uncertain result to enable unknown expressions.
Petrén is a multimedial director and writer whose work revolves around participation, play and translation between inner and outer worlds. Her works has been shown at a wide range of theatre institutions and independent scenes.
In 2023 they formed the duo Jensen/Petrén to explore artistic freedom through practice.
