REVIEWS FROM SWEDISH NEWSPAPERS

Translated to English

Viola/Sebastian in Twelfth Night

Frida Liljevall is at times reminiscent of Gwyneth Paltrow, androgynous in her girlish gruffness.

Lars Ring, Svenska Dagbladet

Sofia in Gubbjävel

Frida Liljevall´s Sofia is austere and inexorably frank as long as she´s able to keep frailty at bay/.../Teater Iris´ "Gubbjävel" is a dialogue and a show of a quality that far transcends the limitations of it´s confined performance space.

Pia Huss, Dagens Nyheter

Sofia in Gubbjävel

Actors Frida Liljevall and Bo G Lyckman movingly capture their characters´ frailty. The harsh vernacular, the police jargon and the sexist comments, provide a protective shield for their broken inner selves. Power structures and imbalances are nicely woven into the dialogue.

Andrea Grapengiesser, Ystads Allehanda

Evelyn in YTA

”Frida Liljevall skillfully plays Evelyn with a slightly academic distance which turns disturbingly frigid.”

Lars Ring, Svenska Dagbladet

A in All My Dreams Come True - A Disney drama

Silkeberg and the cast tops off with a desperate energy that then gives way to dejection. The end result is 75 minutes of dystopia loaded with humor.

Lars Ring, Svenska Dagbladet

A in All My Dreams Come True - A Disney drama

”It´s actually been a long time since I saw chaos as finely calibrated as here./.../The same paradoxical quality is found in Frida Liljevall´s performance - an incredibly skilled tight-rope walk between restraint and breakdown./.../Who is all this for? For anyone wishing to experience a piece of world-class dramatic art.”

Edvin Högdal, Gotlands Tidning

Sofia in Gubbjävel

”Frida Liljevall, as assured as ever, plays Sofia who is looking for a father, while Bo G Lyckman plays Bengt, a man used to bending rules and truths.

Lars Ring, Svenska Dagbladet
