Experiencing Interruptions?


ABOUT FREEDOM 7.0 is the expansion of an interdisciplinary performance with the same title by Benedikte Esperi, first performed at Teater Trixter in Gothenburg at the SOLO Festival 2014. At that time it was the year of election in Sweden and freedom of speech was on the agenda. ABOUT FREEDOM has changed over time, places and contexts, exploring how freedom of speech, artistic freedom and choreographic restrictions can be articulated through numerous performative ways.
The stage version was performed during the Nordic Fringe Festival in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Bergen, 2017.
