Thursday, October 6
12:10-12:50
Ljusgården atrium, Teacher Education Building

Welcome to Fäboland! Here reigns maiden-aunts undisturbed and the song is the best weapon against the dangers of the forest. Fäboland are Thelma and Louise in farmer style - a home spun musical cabaret.

Every summer, girls, women and old ladies went up to the summer meadows in the forest. Not on holiday but to work hard, hang out and have a nice time, free from men. Fäboland assumes farmhouse production as a matriarchal utopia. It is about the Swedish folk music history from a different angle, about a forgotten piece of history.

The show will be held in Swedish.

In association with Umeå Teaterförening and Riksteatern.
