About Poste Restante
Poste Restante is the artistic collaboration between Erik Berg, Linn Hilda Lamberg and Stefan Åkesson. Since 2007 Poste Restante has produced numerous large scale performances and has been presented at festivals such as Baltic Circle (FI), Santiago a Mil (CL) and Salzburger Festspiele (AT). In Poste Restante’s work the individual visitor holds the position of being the centre, the main character and final receiver. There are no fictitious backstories, no on and off stage. Poste Restante’s interests rest within the actual and the parameters of the situation at hand. The performances come in the form of unexpected but honest running activities, where the visitor is placed at the heart of an ongoing dilemma. Rather than finding solutions to these conflicts, their work legitimizes all issues and acts as a catalyst for deep reflection on difficult questions and scenarios. Information is always clear and the participation concrete. Met with respect for her specific conditions and challenges, each visitor is offered an opportunity to think complicated thoughts all way through as well as courage to take their emotions seriously.
