Teater Dictat Performance Lecture


Johan Svensson and Magdi Saleh, theatre practitioners from Sweden, map their own queer histories as they talk about Teater Dictat, working in the Swedish theatre industry, retelling the British canon abroad and exporting the Swedish canon internationally.

The performance lecture will explore methods and techniques for reading, performing, and embodying the queer in existential and phenomenological art practices. Johan and Magdi look at retelling queer theatrical history from Strindberg to Shakespeare. Through personal anecdotes, excerpts of performances, and a Q&A, the stories that bridge the region of Halland with the county of Devon will come to life.

Teater Dictat is a fringe theatre company running since 2005. Johan Svensson (MFA, Academy of Music and Drama, Gothenburg) is the artistic director with years of experience working on queer & gestalt methods. Magdi Saleh (BA, Malmo Theatre Academy) is an actor and director currently working with Malmö City Theatre to deliver high quality productions with a diverse perspective.
