Physics and Phantasma is a piece that mainly takes place within the audience’s imagination. By responding to suggested motives, ranging from the most mundane to the darkest corner of human imagination, Malmborg allows the audience to shape the performance themselves. The theatre is an empty space, a silent frame in which the show is staged. This void allows us to set aside the laws of space and time, and to travel anywhere. In Physics and Phantasma, this is perceived as something profoundly traumatic – a void that must be filled with something, and covered with a veil of fantasy. The show aims to be that veil, through which we study its creation and the relationship between audience and performer.

Iggy Lond Malmborg (1987) is a freelance actor and performance maker based in Malmö, Sweden. He trained at the Theatre Academy in Malmö, and has since created pieces that span a wide range of aesthetics and styles, both solo performances and collaborative work. Malmborg´s main artistic interest is to use the performance itself as a model where the discourse of the piece can be applied directly. In doing so, he sheds light on the politics of theatre and its hierarchy and patterns of inclusion and exclusion.
