The dream of the rainbow

Västerbottensteatern, Skellefteå

THE DREAM OF THE RAINBOW 

music theater about Judy Garland - and the freedom to be himself.
In the spring of 1969, JUDY GARLAND performed three concerts in Sweden and Denmark.
They came to be the very last of her life.
In the new performance The Dream about the Rainbow is told with music, Garland: so-called humor, and blackness for the first time on a stage unique about the days in Sweden.
And the night after the LGBT icon Judy's funeral in New York three months later, when the Stonewall uprising broke out and became the launching pad for the Pride movement's birth.
Original premiere dot 50 years later with ANNA BROMEE & STEFAN CLARIN - in Gothenburg June 13, 2019.
Judy Garland struck out as a 16-year-old when she sang Somewhere over the rainbow in the movie The Magician from Oz. Already when addicted to the amphetamine tablets the film company gave her to lose weight, be able to perform in front of the camera - and be able to sleep.
Forever loved by movies like Easter Parade and A star is born (which Judy becameOscar nominee for 64 years before Lady Gaga :) and concert tours around the world. With constant fear of not being enough as an artist, man, woman and mother.
But Judy had a survival weapon. Humor. And the ability that when she was at the bottom of the bottom sincerely believe in & fight for life to turn.
A gay icon who stood up early for his LGBT fans.
The dream of the rainbow takes off in an unexpected and humorous meeting between Judy and a Swedish journalist aboard an airplane against Stockholm in March 1969. Between the playing scenes Garland's classic songs sound from her concerts. Everything lands in a beautiful forward movement to our time.
In 1969, it was still illegal in the United States to "behave gay in public". After Judy's funeral three months after the Sweden tour, some of her gay fans gathered at the Stonewall Inn in New York to mourn and remember. Then the police made another raid there to arrestLGBT people.
That night, for the first time, the LGBT guests, and residents of the area, stood up to the police and protested in what is called the Stonewall Uprising.
It became the starting point for the Gay Liberation Front and the Pride movement around the world.
2019 is 50 years since Judy Garland's Sweden tour - and since the birth of the Pride movement.
This anniversary year, Anna Bromee and Stefan Clarin will play the musical and touching performance Drömmen about the rainbow in collaboration with Vara Konserthus.
Premiere in Gothenburg June 13, 2019 - and Sweden tour 2019 - 20.
