Irakisk Kristus

“In a space between memory and fantasy, in a brutal depiction of a crude reality, we move between Iraq and Finland with stories where the surreal and absurd are also completely realistic. “DOGS walk around in the dark. They bark anxiously, grinning, fight each other, licking each other in the ass, trying to fuck each other, aim for each other’s throat. 
It’s something like life. “

Misscomunications

(Beckmans, 2019)

It is an uncomfortable feeling, not being able to get through to another person. Now that a great deal of our communication takes place digitally, via text messages, misunderstandings are often caused by misinterpreted emojis or ambiguous wordings. 
This is a short film about two individuals having trouble communicating and connecting with each other. Through dance and graphics, their conversation is visualised.

Den Gula Tapeten

PUMA Scenkonst 2013


Den Gula Tapeten – an ambulatory film and theater installation about freedom, body and room.

Through Charlotte’s diary entries, her life is depicted for a time when she is kept trapped and isolated in her room by her husband and also doctors to get rid of her “nervous disorders”. In her solitude, she develops a neurosis around the room’s patterned wallpaper, which occupies more and more of her time and energy. The work is made up of two parts, the first of which consists of a film installation and the other of a theater monologue. The audience gets to share Charlotte’s disintegrating reality where the spatial boundaries between actor and spectator are blurred. On the walls, the patterned wallpaper plays with itself and moves us to suggestive thoughts.   The short story “The yellow wallpaper” worked when it was published in 1892 as a criticism of the marriage as an institution and against women’s limited opportunities for independence and interpretation. Even today, the story problematises gender power relationships both in the home environment and in public. “… the need to codify the subordination of a woman in biological terms intensified the moment she began to demand greater freedom. The female body became a house that had to be opened, a focal point for a threatened order. Embedded in cells, structures and fluids rested the female’s limitation. By presenting the woman who is guided by her abdomen and sex-specific, fragile nervous and soul systems, it became possible to present her as inappropriate for the public arena. ”From The Dark Continent by Karin Johannisson



The performance was played in 2013 at Färgfabriken, Uppsala Stadsteater , Blå huset in Tensta and Teater Tre.


Subsequent workshops were held on three occasions for high school youth.   With the support of Stockholm City, Stockholm County Council and the Arts Council.

Based on a short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
