I was contacted by a fellow expat Josh from California about his latest improv play.
He will be acting in a improv comedy aptly called Lost in Translation. This is sure to be awesome, hilarious and soulful for foreigners and Swedes alike.
Josh is also giving out two tickets to the premiere to a Lost in Stockholm reader. After all, we’re all lost in some way.
1. Post a comment here. About anything. Love Sweden, hate Sweden. Got an obsession with bulle. Whatever.
2. Post the comment by October 5th 23.56 European Standard Time.
3. We’ll pick a winner and you can pick up the tickets direct at the theater.
4. If you don’t win, you should still go and have a blast. Tickets are only 120SEK per person.
Here’s the story from Josh:
Well, my story is I am an actor from San Francisco, CA and I moved to Stockholm about 4 years ago and I am a love refugee. Since moving here, like most foreigners I was presented with many challenging moments and many amazing moments. It has been this amazing roller coaster ride, and I became fascinated with the experience of the the expat in Sweden.
And also the strong reactions people have to Swedes.
We all share a very common bond through this experience. And I think it is a very unique experience because Sweden is such a small country with strong social norms. So, I thought it would be hilarious to put this on stage, because what better forum is there than theater to not only laugh at our differences, but also attempt to understand them.
I perform and teach improv theater at Improvisation & Co. in Odenplan, and they are producing the show. The cast is a mix of foreigners and Swedes. The show is three Friday nights this fall and it will be a mix of short form and long form improv driven by audience suggestion.
The theater is my home away from home and one of the hidden gems of Stockholm. It has a fun bar and a great vibe. I would love to see some new blood in there and hopefully meet more people in the international community.
About the show: Lost in Translation
Does the experience of living in Sweden feel overwhelming, confusing, and frustrating sometimes? Then you should come and see the new improv comedy show, Lost in Translation, and laugh at our cultural differences with these special people called Swedes!
Improvisation & Co. is Sweden’s only international improv comedy club. Grab a table with friends, have a drink and enjoy the show in an environment where you can’t help but have fun!
