FILM: EX MACHINA
Ex Machina was maybe the film that was Alicia Wikander’s breakout role, when her portrayal of the android Ava made her an international star. The plot here is something between Blade Runner and I, Robot, boiling down to something like “what exactly should we think of robots?”. Armémuseum are showing it this weekend, in English with Swedish subtitles.
Feb 17, 14:30-16:30, Armémuseum

GIG: S POUSETTE

They’re celebrating with a party on the bar boat Patricia on the Södermalm shore. S Pousette plays live and Hardcore Cutie, Kou and Destination Unknown DJ.

THEATRE: TOTAL STRUKTURALITET
KonstAB (Filip Aladdin, Ossian Melin and Anton Hellström) may not consider themselves theatre people (Aladdin: “I have limited experience with theatre. I think it gives us freedom, because we don’t know all the rules”), but their surrealist ‘Total’ plays have caused some of the biggest stir of any theatrical pieces in Sweden over the last few years. The third and final edition of the trilogy, Total Strukturalitet, explores ‘fascism, astral projection and esoterism and the Swedish culture scene’, and the plot opens with a murder at Moderna Museet.
Feb 15, 16, Brunnsgatan Fyra
