Skillingnew for the coffee

Sara kulturhus, Skellefteå

What is hidden in the bud, comes out at the cup!

The storytelling performance Skillingnytt till kaffet takes you to a hearty community around the coffee cup with memories immortalized in art and musical theatre, personal travel stories from the stage – and maybe also memories from the audience?

Here, present and past, seriousness and bursts of laughter can be found here, and of course: the coffee itself.

It started in a journey. An artist, a composer and an actor traveled through Norrbotten and Västerbotten.

At the same time that the newspapers wrote about the big changes that await, long-time people at the kitchen tables told about mother, father, grandmother and grandfather.

About times when the tramps stayed the night, the matchmaking was at the dance and the family got their very first car.

Time passes but the coffee remains.

Like the memories, if we take care of them.

So the cultural creators turned old memories into new songs and new art and collectedthem in the performance Skillingnytt til kaffet.

About ordinary people in a changing world - just like you and me.
