Come in and shut the door

Step inside Anders Jansson’s world.

Step inside Anders Jansson’s world of taxidermied animals, oversized headphones and a treasury of German phrases. The humourist’s first solo show wowed audiences for three seasons and has played in venues throughout Sweden. Get to know Anders and his seemingly endless array of peculiar ideas, clever reflections and associative musings. Text, images and music are a continuous theme throughout this award-winning performance that takes you on a personal journey of nostalgia, present and future, punctuated with improvisation and dialogues with the audience.

Length: approx. 85 minutes with no intermission
Premiere: 2 October 2015–November 2016
