Uje Brandelius self-biographical music performance Spring, Uje, spring has played for sold-out houses and is described as a performance you must see before you die. Now it is given on an exclusive occasion at Dramaten’s great stage on February 22nd. The tickets were released December 21st.

In the fall of 2015, Uje Brandelius released the solo album Spring, Uje, spring after playing for the band Doktor Kosmos for more than twenty years. It became a album with everyday texts about life, love and kindergarten pickups. A record about his life exactly right then.

When the record was released, he began to plan a music performance at a small theater in Stockholm. Just at that moment he noticed that the body didn’t obey as it should. Uje Brandelius was told that he had Parkinson’s disease. The performance became even more relevant and was about life, love and kindergarten pickups – and everything that should find time for in between.

Spring Uje spring is about how life takes turns you could not fantasize about. What you need to find time for before you die. And what you don’t have to find time for. The performance was premiered in 2016 at the Stockholm Improvisation Theater and has since been played for full houses at Södra Teatern and on tour in the country. For all who missed these occasions, another chance to see the performance is given.
