deviser & performer

In collaboration with: Mirja Palo

Språklös, Gränslös, Fabulous is a wild, silly, messy theatrical and musical Swedish-Finnish identity crisis that examines minority politics, racism in the past and present, Finnish stereotypes and the feeling of being the most Finnish person in school, but the most Swedish person at a family party. 

Språklös, Gränslös, Fabulous was performed in schools, community centres and minority identity events in Sweden during 2016-17.
