Jonathan Young guides in the contemporary political jungle during the Culture Night

By on April 25, 2019

During the Culture Night on Saturday 27 April, Kulturhuset Stadsteatern offers a broad program including theater, vernissage, concert, quiz and film. In addition, the comedian Jonatan Young comes to Kulturhuset Stadsteatern’s all-art house in miniature – Under the Fountain – to sort out everything you would like to know about ideology, but been too afraid to ask about.

Simon Svensson has written the smoking fresh monologue “Everything you would like to know about ideology, but been too afraid to ask about” especially for Kulturhuset Stadsteatern. In the performance, which is performed three times during the Culture Night, the audience gets the opportunity to follow Jonatan Youth on a guided tour through the history of ideas. Jonatan Young is a comedian and has participated in several well-known podcasts, such as Lilla Drevet and Della Monde. In 2018 he received the award “Male Comics of the Year” at the Swedish stand-up gala.

– Many people find it difficult to handle a regular dinner discussion on politics without making mistakes. To reduce insecurity before the barbecue season, we have therefore called in the most reasonable and balanced person we can imagine. With Jonatan Youth in the lectern, the risk of discord is super-small, says Johan Wirfält, head of Forum / Debate at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern.

At Culture Night, Kulturhuset Stadsteatern will be open at several premises in the city, while the house at Sergels torg is being renovated. At the Center for Photography at Södermalm, it is the opening for Berör mig, which is co-produced with Kulturhuset Stadsteatern. Six contemporary artists, including Heba Y Amin, Snow White Hedges and Martina Hoogland Ivanow, show video and photo about what is the core of art, to be touched.

At Nalen organizes Kulturhuset Stadsteatern Stockholm Soul 2019, a festival for contemporary international and Swedish modern soul, where a limited number of free tickets are released.

In addition, there will be a town walking in the city, part of the exhibition The women of the district who is about the women who formed klarakvarteren. The exhibition, which is shown in the studio at Sergels Torg, is also open with views during the evening.

And at Stories in Kulturhuset Stadsteatern’s street floor at Sergels torg there will be a quiz with different themes and reading and concert. There will also be screenings at Under Fontänen – where Klarabiografen fills the canvas with the best Swedish short film in nonstop display from Folkets Bio. At Teater Giljotin, a limited number of tickets are distributed to the evening’s performance of the Tiggarna.

All program items have free admission, some have limited number of free tickets.
