Star-packed political cabaret with humour and extravagance!
What does it mean to be a citizen? Do you have to be a citizen? Does citizenship only entail rights or are there responsabilities also?
Medborgarbandet, featuring among others Nina Persson (The Cardigans) and Kristin Amparo, wish to inspire hope and a belief in the future for the Swedish voter during the 2018 election year. In this steamingly fresh show, they deliver sharp dramatic texts with humour, extravagance and commitment. A cast of around ten add life to the stage featuring a live-band and artists, known and unknown, with the will to lift the collective. This is good old entertainment.
Medborgarbandet is a current movement with the will to start conversations about democracy, citizenship and the importance of caring about our society with the intention of inspiring commitment and participation. The initiators of this movement are Gudrun Hauksdottir and Nina Persson. The inspiration for Medborgarbandet comes among others from the political New York-based music group The Citizens Band, of which Nina Persson was a part of for several years.
Medborgarbandet played the show Vinnaren tar allt at Malmö Stadsteater during the spring of 2018 to amazing reviews.
