"Claes Wahlin see the touring show ”I am Europe” at the royal dramatic theatre"
"the Question is, how old the idea of Europe as a unit is. Someone might already start with charlemagne and the 800's. But after all the movement of boundaries through the story, not to mention the conflicts, so undoubtedly, the EUROPEAN union or the EUROPEAN union, the question, to say the least open."
"the Answer to the question could be the title of Falk Richter's touring performance: I am Europe. We meet eight actors, individuals all in spite of diverse origin live and work in Europe and thus, whether they like it or not, europeans. They may come from north Africa, the city of Paris or the country that no longer exists, Yugoslavia. Familjekonstellationerna is varied. Few, if any, is heterosexual."
"nScenen consists of a table with stools, three tv screens, a dozen of soft cubes and some larger, slender steel. The physical side of the game with choreographic elements and a bit of singing is inflätat with the call, where the audience occasionally talked to, that we should not just take a position to the various discussions on the stage, but also be aware of the issues."
"On the screens we see images of street protests and the authorities, the distance between the citizens and the power is virtually absolute. And perhaps it is precisely in this drama that's set does not really say very much that is new, not even for a Hollywood audience. The appointment of the power, and the populist högerströmningarna, what creates the cracks in both Europe and the individual countries is hardly a radical analysis or description."
"nFöreställningen lives of its theatrical expression, the elegant language and ability to combine dance, acrobatics, dialogue, and music. This is also a self-irony, a playfulness that the more serious stories from time to time, slipping out in. A person's story, their identity, contains a and other prejudices, the prejudices which thus unravels and, in the best cases, dissolved."
"the EUROPEAN elections are imminent and this touring show is, of course, correct both in time and in to travel around Europe. However, the question of identity is such an important part of the formula that will go evenly out where the answer should be Europe. The point of the Richter set is that the answer of Europe to accommodate all identities, an ecumenical society where all religions, sexual orientations or ethnic origins is contained."
"Admittedly it is a tad optimistic, it is not at all certain that Europe will become a identitetsparadis only for the populists voted out. The answer is, as I said, open."
