Requirements to venue
Frida Holsten Gullestad, 21.11.2007, Om å være kvinne i ett av verdens rikeste land. Vellykket og skarpt blikk på livet utenfor A4-arket (literally: About being a woman in one of the richest countries in the world. Successful and sharp about life outside of the standard-sized leaf), Adresseavisen, http://www.adressa.no/kultur/article981935.ece:
"Ellisiv Lindkvist’s monologues are located in Norway anno 2007, a country where we have everything, but still are unable to experience perfect happiness... Lindkvist’s text has one voice, onstage acted out by Siri Schnell Horrigmo, Thea Borring Lande and Ingvild Johanne Meland. The stage image is simple and stripped down, with few, but eclectic props. Precise and energetic acting leads us through a personal, hurtful, fun and humorously distant text. Here is shivering proximity and intelligent distance. The text is characterised by self-depreciation, raw and energetic language and the ability and will to say something essential about women as of today. Not just the women fitting in, being 100 percent normal and belonging among the energetic people, but also those not fitting the form. The three grades the acting from strong to weak, fun to unhappy, in an impressive and clever manner."
