    Kroppens Kultur: Fysisk teater som begrepp, dess diskurs och status på teaterfältet.2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master’s thesis discusses the term physical theatre from a discourse point of view. It also focuses on aspects of power from a field theory perspective. The main theory used is Pierre Bourdieu’s field theory, and I try to apply this onto critical discourse analysis, mainly taken from Michel Foucault. The forms of physical theatre I focus on are mainly commedia dell’arte, theatre forms inspiredby Grotowski and Artaud, as well as mime, performance and contemporary circus. These are all theatre forms that focus especially on the body. My aim is to explore the status and discourse of physical theatre in Sweden today.

    The thesis is divided into two main parts. First, I present research concerning empirical data, where I search for the term physical theatre, as well as other forms of describing these theatre forms, in magazines, theatre playlists, texts about theatre troups etc. The term physical theatre is not very common in these texts, it is often described as dance-theatre for example. It is also prominent that the view on what physical theatre is has changed, theatre forms which focus on the body and its expression have been incorporated into the major theatre field, and are no longer considered odd or different. Physical comedy, however, still stands out. Although it seems that it has become increasingly popular, it has somewhat moved away from the serious forms of physical theatre.

    The second part of the thesis approaches the subject from a more theorising point of view, where the discussion itself is the main focus. I start off by discussing the term physical theatre and its aesthetics – how its meaning has changed from being something avant-garde to something that is considered “normal”. Thereafter I discuss the status of the physical theatre forms, and apply them onto Bourdieu’s field theory. Physical comedy has not yet acquired the status of ”high culture”, whereas the serious, more “arty” forms of physical theatre are on different positions in the theatre field, and even on the physical theatre field. I also discuss how this can be transferred to theories about popular culture, and the interesting things that happens when the once very popular, low-status theatre form commedia dell’arte is situated in a high culture theatre house, Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern, in Sweden. I continue to discuss marginalised forms of theatre from a sub-culturalperspective, fighting both against and inside the dominant culture to gain status in the theatre field. After this, I discuss how the physical theatre’s new discourse has changed because of the newly found interest in contemporary circus, research projects in universities as well as higher education in physical art forms. The conclusion is that the term physical theatre still can be useful to describe different forms of theatre, although it is quite vague and has changed significally.

    Regi med barn och unga: En studie av hur personregi används i barn- och ungdomsteaterverksamhet2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur arbetar regissörer och dramapedagoger med barn med ”personregi” - alltså med feedbacken som hjälper till att ett barn hittar ett uttryckssätt som är trovärdigt, ett sätt att spela som är livligt. Hur gör man och varför? Vad är det för en typ av handling, interaktion? Syftet med arbetet är att förstå och tydliggöra en ganska dold och mystisk verksamhet; att inspirera alla intresserade till utvecklat egen verksamhet; att lyfta fram en interaktion där barnen blir hjälpt till och värdesatt i deras spontana tillvaro.

    Arbetets metodik är inspirerad av ”grundad teori” och närmar sig den konkreta sociala interaktionen genom att föra öppen strukturerade samtal med regissörer och dramapedagoger som är verksamma i stora mest kommunala barn/ungdomsteater: Vår Teater/Kulturskolan, Enskedespelet, Sagateatern Lidingö, Ung teater Täby, Skara Skolscen samt Stockholms Stadsteater och Dramaten. Utifrån det material föreslås en systematisering av de olika metoder hur man arbetar som regissör med just personregi. Teoribakgrunden är Daniel Stern och Anders Brobergs utvecklingspsykologi å ena sidan; och de implicita teorierna i internationella skådespeleri/regihandböcker å andra.

    Resultatet visar att det finns en skillnad i regiarbetet när det gäller 7-12-åringar respektive 12-20-åringar. Med de yngre arbetar man utan text. Däremot bygger verksamheten i alla åldrar på stolpmanus som regissören arbetar fram med barnen utifrån improvisationer i en ömsesidig inspirerande process av att hitta-på och ta-upp. I nästa steg är huvuduppgiften för personregissörerna att hjälpa till att försätta barnen i den specifika stämningsfulla situationen som scenen kräver. Som personregins metoder (i alla åldrar) för finarbetet dyker många olika ”verktyg” upp: kognitiva (1) som att prata om ”varför” någon gör något (a), vad någon ”vill” med en handling eller mening (b) eller om hur man ska ”tänka” medan man spelar en mening (c); kroppsliga (2) som att hitta nya rörelsemönster och uttryckssätt (a) eller agera ”som-om” man vore själv rollfiguren (b); samspelsmässiga (3) som att ta upp impulser från den andres blick eller situationen själv. Hur sceneriet exakt ska se ut bestämmer man sent i repetitionsarbetet. Alla är överens om att personregins arbete utgör en unik och värdefull situation där en vuxen hjälper ett barn att hitta sin fantasi och att våga gestalta en annan varelse.

    Coming Out of the Cabinet: Fashioning the Closet with Sweden’s Most Famous Diplomat2012In: Studies in Fashion and Beauty: Volume One / [ed] Efrat Tseëlon, Ana Marta González and Susan Kaiser, Bristol, UK & Chicago: Intellect Ltd., 2012, p. 233-254Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article offers a critical analysis of the media discourse surrounding the Swedish diplomat Sverker Åström’s coming out as a gay man at the age of 87. Particular interest is devoted to his striking fashion choice of wearing a pair of oddly coloured socks, which highlighted his contradictory masculinity as well as the many inherent paradoxes of the closet. Åström’s red and green socks functioned as a means to express forbidden desires, to oppose normative expectations in a playful way and to grant the gay subject a presence in a world that is still very much structured by the logics of the closet. Moreover, his contradictory body language, coupled with his repeated affirmations that his coming out was a private issue, revealed a divided masculinity that was ideologically dependent on a pre-feminist understanding of gender and sexuality as private, that is to say non-political. The article argues that there was strong evidence to suggest that his coming out was in fact a tactical move in a political game, a move aimed to denounce and ridicule the Swedish Security Police (SÄPO), who, after decades of surveillance, refused to grant the diplomat access to its classified files on him.

    Sky Gilbert, Daniel MacIvor, and the man in the hotel room: queer gossip, community narrative, and theatre history2013In: Theatre Research in Canada, ISSN 1196-1198, E-ISSN 1913-9101, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 187-215Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay outlines how the gossip surrounding Tennessee Williams’s visit to Vancouver in 1980 has influenced the narratives of gay communities and in so doing contributed to queer theatre history in Canada. Stories of Williams inviting young men to his hotel room and asking them to read from the Bible inspired Sky Gilbert and Daniel MacIvor to each write a play based on these events. The essay argues that Gilbert and MacIvor transcend the localized specificity of the initial rumours and deploy gossip as a tool to articulate a process of sexual and cultural marginalization, thereby fostering a dialogue with the past. This dialogue marks a crucial and pedagogical task in gay and queer theatre to address the on-going needs of an ever-changing community.

    The Diva and the Demon: Ingmar Bergman Directs The Rose Tattoo2012In: New Theatre Quarterly - NTQ, ISSN 0266-464X, E-ISSN 1474-0613, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 56-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article Dirk Gindt discusses Ingmar Bergman’s 1951 production of Tennessee Williams’s The Rose Tattoo in the small Swedish town of Norrköping, demonstrating how Bergman methodically ignored the tragicomic nature of the play in order to develop and exaggerate its comic and grotesque elements. After extensive cuts and alterations in the script, the character Serafina delle Rose became even more overpowering than in the original text and dominated the action from beginning to end. Karin Kavli, a leading lady in Swedish post-war theatre and a frequent collaborator with Bergman, played the character not as a mourning widow but as a possessed disciple of Dionysus in an unabashedly entertaining and sexualized production which, despite reservations from critics, became a success with audiences.

    Transatlantic Translations and Transactions: Lars Schmidt and the Implementation of Post-War American Theatre in Europe2013In: Theatre journal (Washington, D.C.), ISSN 0192-2882, E-ISSN 1086-332X, Vol. 65, no 1, p. 19-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Contributing to an intercultural understanding of American and European theatre in the post-war era, this essay explores the significance of the Swedish publisher and producer Lars Schmidt for the introduction and spread of U.S. plays and musicals on his side of the Atlantic. Schmidt’s innovative publishing strategies and production methods in addition to his skills as a cultural translator made works like The Glass Menagerie, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and My Fair Lady commercially viable and intelligible to audiences in various national contexts. In the process, he was largely responsible for the emergence of the individual producer in Europe, a position that was perceived as foreign and at times vehemently dismissed as too commercial and too American.

    When Broadway came to Sweden: The European premiere of Tennessee Williams’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof2012In: Theatre Survey, ISSN 0040-5574, E-ISSN 1475-4533, Vol. 53, no 1, p. 59-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay proposes a case-study approach to examine how the initial European production of Cat was received and, by implication, how one of the defining American playwrights of the twentieth century was discussed in Sweden. It focuses on the process of cultural translation and, more precisely, the question of how Swedish ensembles interpreted a foreign playwright who was known for breaking sexual taboos. Unpacking the cross-cultural and transnational dialogue that was established when Cat made its first appearance on a European stage, the essay teases out the cultural tensions and the negotiation of national identity that took place when Williams’s play was transposed from the Mississippi Delta to a more northern latitude. I argue that the stage and the cultural sections of the newspapers offered a forum for Sweden to negotiate some of the country’s sexual anxieties by making use of American cultural products and firmly situating them in an exoticized American context whose values were deemed to conflict with European, and more specifically Swedish, cultural identity.

    Creativity, Corporeality and Collaboration: Staging Fashion with Giorgio Armani and Robert Wilson2013In: Studies in Theatre & Performance, ISSN 1468-2761, E-ISSN 2040-0616, Vol. 33, no 1, p. 3-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay analyzes the creative and economic relationship between and the intersections of theatre, performance and fashion by exploring the notion of collaboration through the work of Italian designer Giorgio Armani and American theatre director Robert Wilson. It addresses three case studies derived from different performance spaces: a performance art installation in a once derelict, purposefully redesigned train station; a modernist play staged in a traditional proscenium arched theatre; and a retrospective exhibition held in a fine art museum that invited the visitors to ‘walk the catwalk’. The objective of the essay is twofold. First, it focuses on the concrete results of the collaboration, that is, the actual events, the mutual artistic and economic benefits for both parties as well as the sometimes controversial critical reception and discourse surrounding them. Second, it queries the meaning and potency of the status of the auteur in a long-term creative collaboration between two equally influential artists from the related, yet distinct fields of theatre and fashion.

    GO BEBIS!, Ah hallo bebis och Prassel: Om danskonst för den allra yngsta barnpubliken2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    The overall aim of this thesis is to explore how the art of dance for the youngest children can be understood as a Children´s Culture phenomenon. The empirical data mainly consists of observations of the project GO BEBIS! and the dance performances Ah hallo bebis and Prassel. In addition, the study includes a dance analysis of the performances and a text analysis of advertising and reviews of the performances. The view of the child is discussed from childhood sociological, phenomenological and aesthetic performative perspectives. The texts present a view of a curious, calm and creative child and the dance analysis shows that recognition from the child’s life-world, mixed strategies of focus and a still and quiet form is recurrent in the performances. Focus (both visual, bodily and spatial) is used to control the child’s attention and it is likely that the choice of movement can inhabit the child and affect the experience. In the observations it is clear that the dancers and the audiences have a bodily dialogue that could be understood as a never ending feedback loop. However, co-presence or the way of turning to the other is crucial for a successful feedback loop to occur. The dancers’ staging strategies affect the co-presence and if it is supported by a general view of the child that doesn´t comprehend with the actual child in front of them, the feedback loop can fail. For example, the study argues that children´s lively movements can be understood as strong contributions which, if not comprehensive with the ideal image of the child, may pose a threat to the performer and the performance. The adult´s bodily advantage can then be used as a way to regain control over the situation. The adult can lift the child, stand up so that the child can´t reach or verbally control the child’s attention. The result shows that how the dancers and accompanied adults handle the child’s contribution can be affected by the view of the child, theatre-norms, the child’s rhythm, the staging of the performances, instructions, the dancers’ strategy and the accompanied adults’ wishes.

    Don't be quiet, start a riot: anarchy, affect, and activism in Pussy Riot's performance2013In: International Federation for Theatre Research (FIRT/IFTR) conference, "Re-Routing Peformance/Re-caminant l'escena", Barcelona, Spain, July 22-26, 2013, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between art and politics emerges again and again. In connection with the Russian parliamentary elections in December 2011 a protest movement appeared calling for free elections and democratic rights. It was in this context the punk group Pussy Riot conducted their now world famous “prayer” to Virgin Mary to dislodge Vladimir Putin from power. The question is whether this was an artistic action with a political purpose or a political action with an artistic method?

        The present paper focuses on the links between the classical avant-garde and anarchism exemplified by the actions of the group Pussy Riot in Moscow. The term anarchy comes from the Greek arche and in its original meaning aims at neither to chaos nor order, but joins both elements. A constant movement between construction and deconstruction of established existing systems characterizes anarchism.

      The classical avant-garde wished to integrate art and life. Art would be understood as a flow with no specific goals and no definite answers to the question “why”? Provocation was seen as an instrument for producing shocking effects using unexpected breaks in the flow of words, images or tones, and forcing the viewer to make new associations. The artists of the avant-garde were socially, rather than politically engaged. Unlike the politically organized revolutionaries they were anti-utopians, politically as well as aesthetically. They did not create a school or style, and did not let that art was under any social or political constraints.

    The Soundtrack of Revolution: Memory, Affect, and the Power of Protest Songs2013In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Culture, ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 175-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    All cultural representations in the form of songs, pictures, literature, theater, film, television shows, and other media are deeply emotional and ideological, often difficult to define or analyze. Emotions are embedded as a cultural and social soundtrack of memories and minds, whether we like it or not. Feminist scholarship has emphasized over the past decade that affects and emotions are a foundation of human interaction. The cognitive understanding of the world has been replaced by a critical analysis in which questions about emotions and how we relate to the world as human beings is central (Ahmed 2004: 5-12).

        It is in this memory-related instance that this article discusses the unexpected reappearance of a long forgotten song, Hasta siempre, as a part of my personal musical memory. It is a personal reflection on the complex interaction between memory, affect and the genre of protest songs as experiences in life and music. What does it mean when a melody intrudes in the middle of unrelated thoughts, when one’s mind is occupied with rational and purposive considerations? These memories are no coincidences,I argue, they are our forgotten self singing to us.

    Playing Is Not Pretending2014In: Playing Culture: Conventions and Extensions of Performance / [ed] V. A. Cremona, R. Hoogland, G. Morries, W. Sauter, Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2014, p. 63-82Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As the title of this chapter indicates, the issues raised here concern the kinds of pretence that are thought to characterize playing and acting. Contrary to Michael Kirby's statement that 'to act means to feign', I will show that an actor neither can, nor wants, to pretend anything on stage. Fiction is not provided on stage but is established in the communicative act between Agent (A) and Beholder (B). Critically analyzing two texts by Bertolt Brecht on non-theatrical playing, I will argue that a number of circumstances have to be taken into consideration. The process of performing is theoretically and empirically seen as a form of playing, which allows for the distinction and communicative specification of various agents in their relation to equally specific forms of beholding. Each relationship in the public sphere between A and B constitutes a public event. This chapter searches for common ground amongst multifarious manifestations of playful behaviour, beyond various aesthetic forms and irrespective of more or less useful functions. In conclusion, playing is described as a reality-related experience: playing is always related to an event and events are never pretended.

    Possibilism and Expectations in Arts Education2016In: The European Journal of Philosophy in Arts Education, E-ISSN 2002-4665, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 96-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an attempt to explore some thoughts regarding how different kinds and levels of expectation might (re)construct being in music education. The philosophical lenses through which this is analysed consist of a combination of a Deweyan pragmatism, the possibilistic parts of the philosophy of the Norwegian philosopher Arne Næss who draws on Spinoza and finally parts of the philosophy of Deleuze & Guettari. A claim made in the article is that it is important in arts educationto challenge the expected and for the world to be created in an eternally wide, and at the same time claustrophobically narrow set of pathways to experience. To learn a communicative art could in other words imply to learn how to consciously adapt to conventions and expectations of musical parameters and at the same time break with them in ways which are functional in aesthetic communication. An important task in arts education must therefore be to train and develop the skill to imagine as rich a web of possible outcomes to any musical situation at the same time as being aware of the conventions that are at stake and their expected uses in order to understand as well as to play with them. That way music education can help pupils become interesting musicians, composers and listeners who are also critical, creative and happy. As an added benefit, these kinds of possibilistic skills, attitudes and modes might actually be beneficial for both learner and society in most parts of life.

    The Sound of the Street: Performance, Sound, and Revolution in 18482014In: Intermediality, Performance, and the Public Sphere: Selected papers from recent meetings of the Tangier International Conferences / [ed] Khalid Amine and George F. Roberson, Amherst, MA, USA: Collaborative Media International , 2014, p. 96-104Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Slogans, rallies, shouting and wailing sirens – this is the sound of protest, the sound of the so far silenced voices in the streets. Even though we do not have any sound recordings of the European revolutions of 1848/49 many sources (news paper articles, reports, caricatures) give a vivid impression of the noisy political demonstrations and powerful street fights provoking political change. Drawing on Jacques Rancières concept of phone vs. logos and his idea of politics as a mean of becoming visible (or audible), I will show how the cultural practice of callithump parades (Charivari, ‚Katzenmusik’) was used as a specific tool in the political fight of 1848 and how these street performances entered the theatre to win over the stage, the pit and the galleries.

    Circoanalysis: Circus, Therapy and Psychoanalysis2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an object/artefact of circus and a subject/process that makes it. This research considers the subject of the circus-making in order to bring it to the foreground of future discussions about pedagogy, practice and production.  If the shift from Traditional to New Circus brought with it changes in education – the incorporation of theatre and dance – then the emerging Contemporary Circus may need a more refined set of tools to facilitate its creative growth. This thesis sets out how psychoanalytic theories can be adapted and its key practices adopted to bring about this shift from New to Contemporary Circus in pedagogic practice.

                                 The practice tends to the subject that is traditionally mute in the face of the demands of circus, to which it complies becoming an object with minimal agency. Psychoanalytic praxis is adapted to give the subject a voice in order to develop a methodology specific to circus; circoanalysis. Following Freud it starts with the analogy of the circus act and the dream, the proposition that both are productions of the unconscious and contain hidden meanings and desires disguised by the formal content. It continues with the analogy of the symptom, which must be repeated for the partial and ambiguous satisfaction of unconscious desire and is at the threshold of the somatic and the psychic. Winnicott's theory of play is utilised to examine how artists explore and work through certain aspects of anxiety provoking psychic content in their work. Anxiety, in its Lacanian formulation, present in both circus and the consulting room, provides the key to understanding the importance of the Other in the act. Circus, like psychoanalysis, needs its other to recount its story to. Over one hundred research participants, students and professionals, engaged in the practices of questionnaires, focus groups, consultations, interviews and extended periods of circotherapy.

                                 The thesis describes the development of a technique of talking through the manifest, formal content of the circus act in order to get to the unconscious desires that create it. The act is then seen as a symbolic compromise formation enveloping a kernel of real jouissance. In a series of case studies hysteria, obsessive neurosis, masochism, paranoid fantasy and melancholia are seen both as a series of subject positions with regard to circus and its spectator and as ways of managing an excessive enjoyment. Circus is put into a new context as a healing practice for its practitioners, whether in the form of repetition compulsion that turns bad objects into good ones or as a homeopathic self-immunisation against pain, anxiety and the relation to the Other. It casts new light on the problematic the circus has with the theatrical performance tropes of character and narrative which emerge as disavowals of this latent content and relation to the Other and suggests that a move forward, beyond this Other of the circus, implies a certain form of mourning.
