Lilith Performance Studio presents

ANIMAL - A major performance by Elin Lundgren and Petter Pettersson in collaboration with the musician Cecilia Nordlund. 

Imagine that Lego would produce a model called "rock club. A small package of everything you need to enter the fiction, rock club; stage, a band, sound, light, bar and audience.Inside Lilith Performance Studio in Malmo, this rock club model is now built up in scale 1.1.

The rock club with its unspoken rules; predetermined dramaturgy, directed spontaneity and, not least, its permissive attitude to dramatic excesses and ecstatic states, has long been a place where Lundgren and Pettersson thrive and can feel passionate fellowship with.

With the power fields generated at a rock club, they want to make visible and simultaneously dissolve the boundary between fiction and reality, actor and viewer. In ANIMAL, Lundgren and Pettersson examine our need for accommodative group affiliation and rebellious individualism.

ANIMAL is collaboration with the Malmo based musician Cecilia Nordlund. She is maybe best known as the front figure in the alternative rock band Souls in the 90s.

Now she is current with the band Fullmånen från Helvetet(Full Moon from Hell) who released their first full-length album "Åska & Blod" (Thunder & Blood) Nov 2018. Nordlund together with the musicians Christine Owman, Åsa Gjerstad and Irma Svensson enter this work as a fictitious rock band persona. In addition to the musicians, over 20 participants will also participate in the performance piece.

In performance related to fellowship, group affiliation and exclusion, Lundgren and Pettersson build their works as living images with an absurd raw humor and a bare documentary narration.

Their base tone is universal issues such as love, loss and grief, driven by the desire to move into the viewer's consciousness as a disturbance and a hope of understanding what it is about being a human being.

Lundgren and Pettersson’s last performance piece for a Malmo audience was ”Island in the Sun” that was shown in a hangar-like building in collaboration with Sommarscen Malmö 2016 and HeadHouse at Lilith Performance Studio 2012.
