Hans Hirschi reading

To celebrate this year’s Gothenburg Book Fair, which starts tomorrow, I’m running a mini theme of authors reading from their books. First out is Hans Hirschi, current chair of Egenutgivarna, the Swedish association of indie authors, who launched his fourth book, The Fallen Angels of Karnataka, at a party in Gothenburg’s Litteraturenshus (House of Literature) yesterday evening. More of my photos from the event on Hans’ blog here.

Playing with fire

Juggling with fire

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.

Romeo and Juliet

Flirtatious Juliet

2 people like this picture

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.
