Two performers dancing, juggling and playing with fire for an audience outside the River Café at Eriksberg. Fire dancing usually looks more spectacular in the dark, but I liked the way the heat from the torches distorts the images of the building and river beyond the performers.
A short trip out of Gothenburg today south to Kungsbacka, where Swedish singer-songwriter Marit Bergman was performing at Kulturfestivalen Kungsbacka väljer Saturday 30th August.

The brilliant flamenco musicians Emil Pernblad and Marianne Holmboe performing at a private party on Hisingen, Saturday evening.
These clowns were entertaining children with baloon sculptures outside Cafe Grindstugan on Saturday, the day of Planket.
Yesterday my wife and I saw Romeo and Juliet perfomed in the open air within Bohus Fästning (Bohus Castle). The slowly setting sun bathed the actors in a golden light.
Above: Juliet (played by Jennifer Peña) is flirtatious.
Below: a little gallery of other photos. Casting Mercutio as a woman (Malin Alfredsson) worked really well – she had a thing going with Benvolio (Jonathan Hellgren) and her death scene was one of the highlights of the performance. Special mention also to the nurse (one of the best comic roles in Shakespeare) which the actress Elisabeth Heilmann Blind was clearly enjoying – I wish I had better photos of her but as luck would have it there was almost always someone’s head in the way.
