CREATIVE PROJECT

      EVERYTHING MUST GO

A father/daughter collaboration, Everything Must Go is a heartfelt exploration of an extraordinary life.

 

Intended to be staged as a duo, innovative performer Kristin Fredricksson beautifully pays tribute to her late father, the charismatic artist Karl Fredricksson, using cinefilm, clowning, dance, puppetry and hurdling as she shares intimate details of his life with the audience.

 

This moving meditation on love, loss, memory and play won a Total Theatre Award in 2009.

 

An athletic-puppetic performance with dad in drag. Dad trains for the Olympics by day and drags up to the nines by night. His photos and Super 8s inhabit the scene and reveal the man. Reality, age and obsession set in. His money-saving schemes become increasingly elaborate, from the secrets of free water to newspaper-stealing shoes. But eventually everything must go.
