How to Create a European Theatre Cooperation
Petra Brylander is the current artistic director and CEO at Uppsala City Theatre. In her former position as theatre manager at Malmö City Theatre, she wanted to find a German director to bring new influences to Sweden. This resulted in long-term cooperation with the German director Anna Bergmann. Right now, their co-production "The New Deadly Sins" can be seen at the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe. This production is being performed in Karlsruhe this autumn and will be put on in Uppsala 2022 with a new ensemble.
The Finland-Swedish actress and opera singer Frida Österberg usually appears at Uppsala City Theatre, but is performing this year in "The New Deadly Sins" at the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe. There, she is performing in German, a language she doesn’t actually speak. She will also appear in this role in the upcoming Swedish production in Uppsala, alongside an otherwise new ensemble.
Anna Bergmann is one of Germany’s most celebrated and acknowledged young directors, who has worked with several important theatres throughout Germany and Austria. Since 2018, she has been artistic director at the Badisches Staatstheater. She started out in her work only choosing female directors, which triggered a lot of debate. Anna Bergmann has been cooperating with Petra Brylander since 2013, when she directed Elfriede Jelinek’s "Nora – What happened after Nora left her husband?" at Malmö City Theatre.
