Frida in a Swedish context

We bought Frida to Sweden, thanks to Skånes Dansteater, and finally got do perform it as a dinner party. The audience was seated at tables arranged at the edge of the performance space and they had been lavishly dressed with crushed velvet table clothes, candles and coffee pots. Due to the licensing laws in Sweden we were unable to offer the audience tequila so everyone had lime cordial. Swedish audiences are very polite and remained fairly quiet throughout the show but many assured me later that they had enjoyed it very much. As performers, due to the audiences lack of interaction and having time in the studio the day before, we found new things in and between each other which gave the piece a new depth that we hadn’t found before.
