Clouds reveal a physical, sensory and spiritual landscape that is constantly changing. Its movement and visual aesthetics also do not stop moving - between endless delicacy and existential upheaval
In the center of a space that looks randomly designed and sparse, performer Daniel Edvardson stands without shelter. Using his body and voice, drawing inspiration from cabaret shows and genres such as clowning and circus performances, Daniel produces a vibrant show
In a show that explores the boundaries of the familiar and stretches them, the creator creates from the banal and the abstract a performative bubble that has from the ridiculous and colorful but also from the morbid and dark: his raw, grotesque characters, wandering in space, modeling positions clumsily, and seem to be looking for meaning and connection with the emptiness and the audience that surrounds them. It is a search for a unique and imaginative performative being; Like clouds floating in the sky.
