The last Russian event and the biggest one of my program for Elverket Theater (New stage of The Royal Drama Theatre) took place on the 17 and 18 of November. Everything went well. Liza Morozova and masha_sha arrived from New York (thanks to Thoams Lundh, co-curator and producer of the event). Xenia Nikolskaya brought her photographs from St.Petersburg by boat.
We use the advantage of Elverket stage (stage design for “Chaika” by A. Chekhov). It was as if specially constructed for masha_sha’s video installation “My Mother”. Looked super expensive!
Liza Morozova was totally concentrated before her naked performance “Identification”. Audience got really exited – look at the picture below…
Russian department of Swedish radio made 10 minute reportage which you can listen here at Swedish Radio http://www.sr.se/cgi-bin/international/nyhetssidor/sandningsarkiv.asp?date=22.11.2007&programID=2103
(do it fast – as I understood they keep materials only for few weeks). You should go to 22 November program at 15.00 and the reportage is in a second part of the program.
I guess with this event I managed to show new names (for Stockholm) as it was planed – more female than male – and that was my intention too.
