SthlmsMusikTeater at APAP i NY 4-10 of January 2019
SthlmsMusikTeater (SMT) is an independent group, based in Stockholm, that creates newly written musical theatre. We use the expression of theatre and music to convey fairly complex material into an accessible and entertaining artistic experience. We use a direct approach and love a close interaction with the audience. We've paved a path that extends between opera and musical theatre as well as the best from the avant-garde stage. We also work in a smaller format than one usually associates with these genres. New, innovative Swedish musical theater, for a wide audience! We also play in English.
We have played at the Shakespeare festival in Craiova, at the Hamlet Castle in Helsingör in Denmark, at the NY International Fringe Festival, at the opera festival in Oslo, at the Tbilisi international theatre festival.

”Freud’s cigar is a playful and pedagogical puzzle raised to entertainment through the clever ideas of director Andreas Boonstra. Jonas Nerbe plays several parts in a relaxed and virtuoso manner. .
