LIVSTECKEN: A musical gift (2006)
What will you leave behind? A story about the gifts that a newborn child gets from the society, and what we leave behind when we die. The show consists of eight different vignettes, each with a specific theme. In the end of every vignette, an object, that represents the theme, is put in a baby carriage. The collection includes “family”, “freedom”, “love”, “to find yourself” and “death”. Some of the characters that are focused upon are the black sheep of the family, a writer with a troubled childhood, a pregnant teenager and a person with seven personalitites. “Sometimes the changes are unwanted, but without them you wouldn’t be right here right now.”
Conceived, written and composed by the students and staff of the Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts 2006 Linköping, Sweden Workshop.
