I, Händel (2016)


The solo performance “I, HÄNDEL” is based on the novel “Mitt grymma öde” by Carl-Michael Edenborg. The novel is a historical fantasy about the life of the German composer Georg Friedrich Händel, has been dramatised by Edenborg and then further adapted for performance by Henriette Pedersen.

The performance uses linguistic cross-dressing  and physical play to tell the story about the great, male composer. Gender, sexuality and megalomania constitutes one dimension of the performance, alongside the hygiene and fashion of the Baroque era. Caisa Stina Forssberg portrays Händel of its premiere at Atalante.
