DAVID ERIKSSON (SWE): PINK ON THE INSIDE
In “Pink on the Inside” David uses the full range of his stage experience – the brilliant circus entertainer, the comedian and the actor, to convey the raw macho energy to take the audience by storm from the first second.
The audience are brought on a mesmerizing, but disturbed, journey through juggling, comedy and acrobatics accompanied by heavy rock towards the point of no return. Through the performance David peel layer after layer of himself as a man. Based on his own experiences, he takes up the male role and its norms, which he in many ways experienced as a prison.
He uses his scene endowment to put his finger on the points where masculinity is most vulnerable and to question the norms that define manhood.
