I DN igår om Lilith och Gatewy och Orient Express, Yourself! KUL!


“Som vanligt är det genomarbetat och storslaget. Under sina tio år har Lilith etablerat ett unikt svenskt konstrum där performancegenren fått växa både i storlek och betydelse.

Även om omfångsrika produktioner inte är något nytt i sig har villkoren inom performance länge varit sådana att de favoriserat snabba och improviserade happenings. Inget ont i dem, men Lilith har visat att performancekonst är mer än så. Med sin institutionella plattform har de produktionsmässigt, men framför allt publikt skapat förutsättningar för att ta den till en ny nivå. Där andra sedan kunnat följa efter.”

Dan Jönsson DN

In the newspaper yesterday about Lilith, The gateway and Orient Express, Yourself! GREAT!

” Sometimes you’re lucky. Apparently, our spacecraft has fallen off course and we have landed on an unknown, dark planet where the queen and her cloned satellites invite to a party with bubbles in neon-blinking glasses and some kind of space-tapas,

ingeniously sereved as molecular models. They shine like gems but taste surprisingly similar to our own chocolate balls, grapes and petits chouxes.


Lilith Performance Studio in Malmö turns ten years and celebrates during this fall with a whole series of imaginative parties. Myriam Laplantes extraterrestrial cocktail party last weekend was the second in the series, an odd mix of new- spiritual science fiction and playful Halloween party where it struck garish, ironic sparks between the props colliding symbols. Zombies and caramel colors. Smoke machine and cookies.


As usual, it is well-worked and magnificent. During its ten years, Lilith has established a unique Swedish art space where the gengre of performance been allowed to grown both in size and importance.


Although extensive productions are not new in themselves, the terms of performance have long been such that they favored fast and improvised happenings. No bad in that, but Lilith has shown that performance art is more than that. With its institutional platform, they have productionwise, but above all, audiencewise created conditions for bringing it to a new level. Where others could follow.


There is a built-in contradiction in the institutional experiment that Lilith has become increasingly skilled in dealing with. The artistic chances of rapid production meet the audience’s expectations in a way that makes uncertainty an asset. Some become pure magic, some fall flat to the ground, and rarely there is any space in between.


In short, it is a risky venture, which as Laplante, try to balance the moods of the novelty space story and the yawning of children in the same work. If that succeeds depends largely on the audience.


The performances in the autumn series “You are Invited” are made by all artists who have been in the past. Myriam Laplante was introduced in 2013 with a deep-psychological maze where surveillance cameras acted as a connecting metaphor.


Dafna Maimon, who started the fall, stood last year for one of Lilith’s more unforgettable productions, the Sleeping beauty –like “Modern Lives” with somnambulist-like

actors in a spooky century-shifted environment. Her performance now in September was a reconstruction of Finland’s first falafel kiosk, where the food was paid by the audience responding to strained questions about their growth and did not have the same energy at all.


But here, such distinctions are not as important. For the faithful audience, it is exciting to follow how Maimon is looking for inspiration in her personal history – the falafel place in Helsinki was run by her dad, while the characters in “Modern Lives” were based on a figure her mother created.


What Lilith offers is a scene for experiments where the audience is included as an obvious part of the trial process. It’s a luxury to be a part. As I said, sometimes you are lucky.”

HAPPY to read about Lilith’s second performance dinner – YOU ARE INVITED – The Gateway by Myriam Laplante Oct 12-14 in Kunsten.nu

Til disco-sci-fi-middag


The Canadian artist Myriam Laplante invited  us to a strange, futuristic performance dinner at Lilith Performance Studio in Malmo on the occasion of Lilith’s 10th anniversary:

Time is another. Or at least difficult to suggest in the Canadian artist Myriam Laplantes performance installation The Gateway at Lilith Performance Studio in Malmo. There is a large digital clock on the wall. It counts up or down after our known seconds, but the numbers do not match our schedule: 27:35:40.

The room is dark, but rather lit by several lamps with multicolored lights in the attic. At one end of the room are a number of strange creatures on a scene; they may not be less like the Norwegian artist Tori Wråné’s troll characters or space workers from the Star Trek series. The beings are completely masked and are in a way recognizable and at the same time not at all. At the other end of the room is another strange creature. Raised as on throne. She welcomes you with phrases that might come from popular sci-fi movies or series? The scene where space workers meet people.

A significant place for performing arts
Lilith Performance Studio in Malmö is a great place that can produce performances under proper terms for the artists. The place is one of the few in the world that has performance art and theater as the only main priority. Here, performance art is treated with care and not just an exciting, bodily live feature for a fernization. National and international performance artists will be able to experiment with Lilith Performance Studio, as well as the artists have longer production runs, reminiscent of the test runs at a theater. In addition, the site has potential for producing large scale performance pieces. The place is therefore very important and distinctive for the performance scene in the Nordic region and the rest of the world.

Ritual snacks
Laplantes’s work therefore also develops into a form of ritual. The masked creatures go slowly in rows around us, the audience. It’s hard to know where to stand and go how to act. They do not really look at us and sneak in between us, from behind or from the side. Suddenly they only stand there.

The lights in the ceiling are lowered, and the creatures carry them serially around the room on pillows, which were the irreplaceable, very valuable items. Later they come in with slices of food that are put on the tables in the room. The food is colored, strange, it is at once different and recognizable. It also turns out to be mozzarella cheese, biscuits, common recipe snacks. Then the creatures come in with flashing glass that would make any discofest honor. Then the disk is up for sci-fi anniversary dinner!

Inner demons or societal references
The Sci-Fi performance dinner of Laplante is image-saturated and tempting just to look beyond being strange to move around. It’s hard to navigate and know how to deal with space creatures. You get alienated, but the work does not get really uncomfortable. We all know the frame as a dinner and we are invited.

The work is melancholy, as the creatures seem so sad, but at the same time The Gateway seems cynical because they are not communicating with. The creatures are cold. Of course, the work, as science fiction often does, refers critically to our society, where one can also feel strangers to each other and unable to act and communicate. Or the creatures may be the expression of our inner, sad demons or suspicions of human sadness. Unfortunately, The Gateway is characterized by a few clichés, and it might have been interesting with more interaction, as it is hard to hear the woman’s important ending replay at all, but in addition, The Gateway is a most interesting and wonderful strange sci-fi dinner to Be a guest, where you switch between feeling strange and welcome.

Such a great review in the newspaper – Sydsvenskan – published the 23rd of September! https://www.sydsvenskan.se/2017-09-25/falafel-har-aldrig-smakat-sa-gott

And also in Kristianstadsbladet http://www.kristianstadsbladet.se/kultur-o-noje/lilith-performance-studio-malmo-orient-express-yourself/

Falafel have never tasted so GOOD!”


“Det finns en alldeles särskild humor och skärpa i Maimons kärleksfullt iscensatta falafelbar, som formar sig till en lika givande som prövande erfarenhet.”

“Så tillhör förmågan att locka och pocka människor att lämna sin bekvämlighetszon Liliths stående specialiteter. Också denna gång lyckas de suveränt med att skapa det drömskt surrealistiska tillstånd där allt tycks möjligt”

Carolina Söderholm Sydsvenskan


“There is a very special sense of humor and sharpness in Maimo’s lovingly staged falafelbarbar, which forms as  rewarding as an testing experience.”

“It belongs to the ability to entice and encourage people to leave their comfort zone, Lilith’s standing specialties. Also this time, they succeed in creating the dreamy surrealist state where everything seems possible”

Carolina Söderholm Sydsvenskan

“– Det finns ett behov av att jobba med performance i större skala”

Mycket Fint skrivet om Lilith i Kunstkritikk och vårt firande i höst!!”


Lundgren och Petterson har sina rötter i punken, och ser på Lilith som ett alternativ till det etablerade konstlivet. Man arbetar sällan med konstnärer som redan har visats brett i Norden. Ett av deras mest uppmärksammade verk var Lundgrens eget Back in Baby’s Arms (2008), där 100 kvinnor vandrade genom Malmö sminkade som om de utsatts för grovt våld. Ett annat omtalat verk var Laura Limas The Abstraction (2014), där man rekryterade barn i åldrarna 7–12 år för att bygga upp ett eget konstmuseum i Liliths lokaler.

” – Vi letar aldrig efter tematik, utan vill vara väldigt fria i vad vi visar. Det som sammanlänkar dem är poesi, lekfullhet och kanske ett uns av samhällskritik.

Berätta lite om det nya projektet ni visar i höst. Varför ville ni fira jubileet så här?

PP: Första tanken inför 10-årsfirandet hade kanske varit att ha en sjukt stor fest och sen underhålla våra gäster med lite performance. Men det är ju precis det vi arbetar emot: performance som en extra krydda.

EL: Vi ville göra något slags retrospektiv och jobba med konstnärer som varit älskade av oss och publiken, men samtidigt visa på en bredd. För första gången har vi ett tema: middag. Vi ville inte visa konstnärer från vår historia på samma kväll, då hade de behövt kompromissa med tiden och utrymmet. Under hösten och vintern kommer istället fyra olika konstnärer att presentera sina respektive tolkningar av vad en middagsbjudning kan vara.

Vi börjar med Dafna Maimon som har återskapat sin pappas falafelrestaurang som han drev i Helsingfors. Vi har anlitat två killar från Värnhemsfalafel som lagar maten.

PP: Publiken tänker «jag går på en middag med olika konstnärer», men det är inte det de får. De fyra konstnärerna har väldigt olika uttryck, men de flesta har på något sätt tagit fasta på den sociala aspekten i en middag.


OCH I SKÅNSKAN IDAG!! http://www.skd.se/2017/09/21/firar-tio-med-hostliga-middagar/

Skånska Dagbladets Yvonne Erlandsson skriver idag om Lilith 10 år och kvällens öppning Orient Express, Yourself av Dafna Maimon!

” -Det vi skyr är det som jobbar med tydliga teman där man genast förstår. Vi är ute efter det abstrakta, poetiska, drömska. Vi har ett behov av att bli drabbade. När vi inte riktigt förstår men känner att det här är något fantastiskt, då har i hittat rätt, säger Petter Pettersson.
– Publiken får varje gång se se något nytt. Och vi har en tilltro till publiken. Vi försöker inte krångla till något, publiken får komma in och skapa en egen bild, säger Elin Lundgren.

Dafna Maimon gjorde 2016 det mycket uppskattade verket Modern Lives hos Lilith. Nu återskapar hon i minnesfragment sin pappas restaurang. Familjen kom från Israel och pappan startade 1985 Finlands första falafel- och kebabrestaurang, Orient Express. Han blev omtalad och omskriven i finsk press och gjorde en stor reklamdrive på finska biografer.

” Lilith Performance Studio fyller tio och firar med att under hösten bjuda in publiken till middagar i fem olika konstnärers tappning. Först ut är Dafna Maimon med ”You are invited – Orient Express, Yourself” den 22-24 september. Det kommer att serveras falafel, men valutan är inte pengar utan ord och minnen.”
