    Publiken bokas in på olika tider för att undvika köer och trängsel. Alla är fria att stanna så länge de vill fram till kl 22.00. För att se verket i sin helhet behöver du ca 45 min.

    Min totala njutning är ett tillstånd i glappet mellan ett före och ett efter, krisen eller extasen. Individens begär efter förödelse och pånyttfödelse undersöks i relation till kollektivets behov av rituell intimitet och omsorg. Likt ett svedjebruk har allt det gamla bränts för att komma åt något nytt.

    Vi rör oss varsamt i skrevorna mellan erotiska drömmar och sönderfallande verklighet. Det undermedvetna har tagit formen av en ny natur, ett kargt bergslandskap som kladdar fast under fotsulorna. En grupp människor hanterar ofrivilligt den levande organismens olika stadier av transformation. Med ett outsinligt begär mässar kören om förlösningen i den totala njutningen. Händelser och temporaliteter utspelar sig sida vid sida, omlott och utan tid. 

    grovt vällande lögner 
    den här sörjan 
    hysteriskt verklig

    och du håller inte ens min hand 
    du håller inte ens min hand

    Min totala njutning är en massiv totalperformance med utgångspunkt i nyskriven lyrik. Poesin har fått diktera den fysiska platsens gestaltning, liksom komposition av ljudlandskap, körstycken, operasolon och de medverkandes koreografier. Metoden är en del av Lilith Performance Studios treåriga undersökning där aktörer som inte tidigare arbetat med performance bjuds in för att i nära samarbete med studions konstnärliga ledare, om möjligt, finna oprövade vägar till hur ett liveverk kan arbetas fram.

    gör om
    gör om det här
    snabbt och smutsigt

    min totala njutning
    plommon
    pälsar
    röda stenar

    Med utgångspunkt i Mårs lyrik har kompositören och ljudkonstnären Philip Gleisner fritt komponerat körstycken och elektroakustisk musik. 

    I samarbete med Aska förlag ges diktsamlingen Min totala njutning av Daniel Mårs ut som publikation och finns tillgänglig i en första signerad utgåva för besökande publik.

    LILITH är konstnärsduon Elin Lundgren (1973) och Petter Pettersson (1972). I performance som berör gemenskap, grupptillhörighet och utanförskap, bygger LILITH sina verk som levande bilder med en absurd humor och ett avklätt dokumentärt berättande. Deras grundton är allmänmänskliga frågor som kärlek, saknad och sorg, drivna av viljan att flytta in i betraktarens medvetande som ett brus och en förhoppning om att förstå vad det handlar om att vara en människa.

    Daniel Mårs är född 1986 och bosatt i Malmö. Han har tidigare gett ut diktsamlingarna Simonillusioner (2017) och Voilà! (2020). Tillsammans med Charlotte Qvandt har han även skrivit Flockmatrisen (2019) och En berörd park (2022).

    Philip Gleisner är kompositör och ljudkonstnär, född 1991 och bosatt i Malmö. Efter att ha haft klassisk komposition som inriktning en längre period har idag det elektroakustiska mediet tagit över Gleisners fokus och han komponerar idag för musiker och högtalare i egna och utomstående projekt.

  • MIN TOTALA NJUTNING (MY TOTAL PLEASURE)
    LILITH & DANIEL MÅRS

    Performance: November 3-5, 10-12, 17-19  7-10 pm
    Place: Lilith Performance Studio, Bragegatan 15, Malmö
    Tickets: https://www.kulturcentralen.nu
    The audience is booked in different time slots to avoid a queue and is free to stay as long as they like until 10 pm. You need 45 min to see the performance in full. 

    Min totala njutning (My Total Pleasure) is a state of being in the gap between a before and an after, the crisis or the ecstasy. The individual’s desire for devastation and rebirth is examined in relation to the collective’s need for ritual intimacy and care. As a slash-and-burn agriculture, all that is old has been burned in order to access something new.

    We carefully move in the crevices between erotic dreams and a crumbling reality. The subconscious has taken the form of a new nature, a barren mountain landscape that sticks to the soles of the feet. A group of people involuntarily manage the transformation stages of a living organism. With an inexhaustible desire, the choir sings of redemption in total pleasure. Events and temporalities unfold side by side, intertwined and without time.

    coarsely surging lies
    this whole mess
    hysterically real

    and you don’t even hold my hand
    you don’t even hold my hand

    Min totala njutning is a massive, total work of performance art based on newly written poetry. In the performance, the poetry has dictated the concept, the design of the physical site, as well as the composition of soundscapes, choral pieces, opera solos and the choreography of the participants.The method is part of Lilith Performance Studio’s three-year investigation whereby practitioners who have never worked with performance before are invited to work closely with the studio’s artistic directors, and to, if possible, find new, unexplored ways of developing a live performance work.

    do it over
    do this over
    quick and dirty

    my total pleasure
    plums
    furs
    red stones

    In November 2020, on the initiative of Lilith Performance Studio’s artistic director / artist duo LILITH, poet Daniel Mårs was commissioned to write a poetic universe that would serve as the basis for a large-scale performance. In close collaboration with LILITH, the poetic elements have been developed in the form of text lines, movements and installation. This has resulted in the total performance work and poetry collection, both entitled Min totala njutning.

    Based on Mårs’ poetry, composer and sound artist Philip Gleisner has freely composed choral pieces and electroacoustic music. 

    In collaboration with Aska publishing, the poetry collection Min totala njutning  by Daniel Mårs has been published and will be available in a first signed edition for visiting audiences.

    LILITH is the artist duo Elin Lundgren (1973) and Petter Pettersson (1972). Through performances that touch on community, group belonging and exclusion, LILITH constructs their works as living images infused with a sense of absurd raw humor and a stripped-down documentary narrative. Their key concerns revolve around universal human issues such as love, loss and sadness, they are propelled by a desire to move into the audience’s consciousness like a disorder, all the while hoping to understand what it means to be a human being.

    Daniel Mårs was born in 1986 and lives in Malmö. He has previously published the poetry collections Simonillusioner [Simonillusions] (2017) and Voilà! (2020). Together with Charlotte Qvandt, he has also written Flockmatrisen [The Flock Matrix] (2019) and En berörd park [A park concerned] (2022).


    Philip Gleisner is a composer and sound artist, born in 1991 and based in Malmö. After having focused on classical composition for a long period, Gleisner’s focus has now shifted to the electroacoustic medium, and he currently composes for musicians and loudspeakers in both his own projects and in external collaborations.

Magic opening week last week!

Fantastic respons of our new performance Min totala Njutning by the artist duo Lilith and the poet Daniel Mårs.

Over 1100 tickets already sold! The critics love it.

6 more times to go. We are on again Thursday – Saturday this week and next!

Welcome!!

 

” The audience moves along the walls, and in the neon blue gloom emotions, voices and bodies surge in a powerful mix of song, caresses, beauty and sadness. Both bakery and nightclub, opera scene and disaster site, darkly and lavishly twisted beyond all rhyme and reason.”

” The experience is completely bizarre, like an apocalyptic dream scene. The survivors gather among the ruins, in frustration and longing. Nevertheless, the life-giving dough must continue to be kneaded, connections built, bodies embraced and meaning created. Without falling for banal messages, the work says something essential about the beauty and difficulty of being human. It is doom-laden and strangely comforting.

” When I wander out into the industrial area again, I don’t know what I saw, other than that I witnessed something special; also the experience that the wordless can be so …. political, philosophical, existential.”

→Review in English

” Lilith Performance Studio has once again succeeded in creating a world that was not known to be possible. Or rather several parallel worlds. The Dough Cave can be a post-apocalyptic condition where you have to help each other to survive. Or a mythological penal colony, where the sinners are condemned to eternal Sisyphus labor. Or a bubble of pleasure where like-minded people have gathered to devote themselves to something they love, without having to worry about the questioning looks of the outside world.”

Performance

“My total enjoyment”

By: Lilith and Daniel Mårs

Composer: Philip Gleisner

Participating actors: Daniel Mårs, Elin Lundgren, Erik Wall, Susanne Larsdotter, Lo Pettersson-Lundgren, Inna Pettersson-Lundgren and more

Vocals: Choir and with Kristine Nowlain as soloist

Pole dance: Selma Kjesen

A production by Lilith Performance Studio, premiering on November 3 in their premises in Malmö. Played until November 19.

When we walked down the stairs in the old industrial premises on Bragegatan in Malmö, we ended up on March. Possibly it’s another celestial body, or maybe we’re in a Mad Max movie?

In the faint purple light, stalagmites rise like rakes. When the eyes have had time to get used to it, we start to be able to discern bodies. In the lunar landscape, they move silently around on piles of earth and mud, or maybe they are the bready lumps of dough that they are in reality? Kilo after kilo of dough. Person after person, children, young, elderly, someone with walkers carry in different directions – to gather after a while, collaborate, work, maybe build something… and well, maybe also enjoy the sticky material like a child in a mud puddle.

Many actors take part in “My Total Pleasure”, which is presented by Lilith Performance Studio for two more weekends, with November 17-19 as the final performance period.Photo: Lilith Performance Studio/Press image

“Lilith Performance Studio is one of the important small idiosyncratic groups that make Malmö by far the most vibrant stage city in the country right now. Long before the stagnant capital, the one that used to be “Europe’s most theater-dense city”.

Lilith Performance Studio is one of the important small idiosyncratic groups that make Malmö the country’s by far the most vibrant stage city right now. Long before the stagnant capital, the one that used to be “Europe’s most theater-dense city”.

The Malmö-based group is still a senior in the context of their 15 years and many of their performances have been successful international collaborations. Most recently with the Norwegian Tori Wrånes, where the audience got to see her performance in a giant “stomach bag”. In this way, Lilith’s own “My total pleasure” – their “biggest venture to date” – with their dough is a kind of continuation.

“My total enjoyment” is an art performance as far from fourth wall theater as you can get. And even if the performance form can still feel odd in 2022, there is of course a line from the 60s explorations in the hippie and pop art era, to today’s still active legends Marina Abramovic. The form thus carries both history and wealth. Like here this evening, rather sharp than doughy.

The poet Daniel Börs is once again collaborating with Lilith’s lead duo Elin Lundgren and Petter Pettersson, but this time his stanzas, like detached murmurs, only accompany the sound room from time to time. The words are more clearly in a newly published book … but are also there their own central lyrical entity, and do not give obvious answers as far as we can see. It does not matter.

And I still imagine that I’m seeing something completely different from what the stage artists have created in view of the show’s title. But “so what”? The openness of performance art makes it – when it’s this good – even more interesting. My brain flutters during the performance through the time span of man here on earth. Are we seeing Stone Age people, or is it our future after climate collapse? Do the people thrive or do they behave in their herd as if they were in Dante’s purgatory?

“It gives a timeless picture of human needs, desires, collegiality, but also a hint of how close we actually are to animals. A bit like the monkeys in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001.”

 

Regardless, it gives a timeless picture of human needs, desires, collegiality, but also a hint of how close we actually are to animals. A bit like the monkeys in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001”… But suddenly an opera singer comes in and interrupts the monotonous buzzing from the speakers, a circus performer excels with a swinging pole dance…. we are therefore at the same time in a show or fairy tale world. Humans can do this too!

At the entrance, we have been told that we as an audience do not actively participate in the performance, and I think “thank God for that”. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t involved. Some walk around the environment, others stay away from the “stage room” and push themselves against the wall. Our walking tour is absolutely co-creative, and the fact that the twenty participating “dough bearers” in the room are wearing ordinary everyday clothes connects them and us. So: stone age, future? Why not the present.

The audience gradually gets braver, steps around the performers watching. It is almost impossible not to come out a little floury or doughy. It is also unusual to see the audience drop in one after the other during an evening on stage. The evening itself lasts for three hours. If you are, like me, there from the start, the surprisingly heterogeneous audience grows from the maybe ten we were at seven o’clock to probably five times that after an hour and when you want to, you go out again. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable at all, but gives the evening its own pulse.

When I wander out into the industrial area again, I don’t know what I saw, other than that I witnessed something special; also the experience that the wordless can be so …. political, philosophical, existential.

It’s really not just the dough under the shoes that makes me walk away enriched.

“My brain flutters during the performance through the human span of time here on earth.”

” Ett erotiskt sorgedrama på liv och död med fem ton mjöl, operasång och poledancing. Kan det finnas någon annanstans än på Lilith Performance Studio i Malmö? Nu har de premiär för sitt mest omfattande verk hittills.”

IGÅR VAR DET ÖPPNING! VILKEN FIN PUBLIK, RESPONS OCH MAGISKA AKTÖRER OCH MAGISK OPERASOLIST – Kristine Nowlain

– Det är i glappet under och efter en katastrof. Både i det som händer inne i huvudet under en personlig kris, men det kan också vara efter ett terrordåd eller naturkatastrof. I glappet när man inser att allt bakom en har passerat och nu måste det ske något nytt, säger Petter Pettersson på Lilith Performance Studio.

– I sådana stora katastrofer måste gruppen börja ta hand om sig själva och se på nya sätt på sina liv för att skapa nya system, traditioner, riter och samhällsstrukturer, säger Elin Lundgren på Lilith Performance Studio.

You will carefully move in the crevices between erotic dreams and a crumbling reality.

Concept & Idea: LILITH – Elin Lundgren & Petter Pettersson
Music: Siri Jennefelt

Game Changer is a performance that explores our need for adaptable group affiliation and rebellious individualism, where the boundary between viewer and actor dissolves. Visitors enter a dim lit club environment, each dressed in anonymizing hoods decorated with carnivalistic feathers. Our need and longing for intimacy, comfort and fulfillment are tested and processed through gestures, rituals, and impulses. Game Changer dissolves and shifts the boundaries between visitor and actor as each visitor chooses how they participate.

LILITH is the artist duo Elin Lundgren (1973) and Petter Pettersson (1972). Through performances that touch on community, group belonging and exclusion, LILITH construct their works as living images infused with an absurdist sense of humour and a stripped-down documentary narrative.
