handlar innerst om att väcka tankar och funderingar hos lyssnaren. Inga lösningar eller föredrag från scenen, bara en samling berättelser om en färd mellan kobbar och korallrev, nerför brusande vattenfall och förlisningar men också tider när vågskummet lagt sig och nya bilder ger plats åt ljusa minnen som blandas varsamt med eftertänksamhet. Där mellan blixten och åskknallen smiter vi in för att tillsammans leta diamanter.
Mattias Gejrot sätter tonen med sin musik. Lars Cederholm berättar.
PS: Vår förhoppning är, att under föreställningen, långsamt lyfta scenen
“Looking for diamonds”
This performance aims at arising thoughts and emotions in recognition of the personal life trajectory of the listener. No solutions or lectures from the stage, only a collection of stories about an adventurous journey between windswept Baltic islands, far flung coral reefs, down roaring waterfalls and the suffering of periodic ship wrecks. But also recollecting the times when the foam from the stormy waves have been dissolved and the space for images of magical display opens up like a lotusopens up its petals in ten directions. In the crack between the blinding lightening and the thunder clap we will quickly enter and, together, we go on search for diamonds.
Mattias Gejrot sets the tone with his music. Lars tells the stories. During the performance we aim to create the sensation of elevating the stage. Please join us for this experience of close encounters.
I like to tell stories! To paint pictures with words so lucid and alive that the listener could see the space and time, be there, in the story, almost physically perceiving the details as well as the circumstances surrounding the story. How great it is when I am able to touch something inside of the listener that is relevant to their own life. Adding value!
In my role as a professional person I am often standing in front of people trying to reach them with a message but also to learn from them in lively interchange. About a year ago some friends encouraged me to tell stories from my life from a stage. The seed was growing and when I met Jan Eric Ström, a musician who has been kissed by the muses of music the contours of a performance gave birth to itself. Together, he and I mixed my stories with his music and his poetic texts and we started to feel that we have come up with a show that leaves people amused and thoughtful. A premier at Solgården in Maglehem evolved into a performance at Victoriateatern in Malmö A show that mixes storytelling, music, poetry and laughter going pretty far out on the limb. To give further depth to the performance, I am now working with a Russian actress, Elena Alexandrova, who helps me to understand the stage from which to deliver the message with full impact. Two more performances are being scheduled so, please stand by for more details.
