The touring with UNPLUGGED is over for now. So many fantastic gigs in so many different places – with everything between big theatres and small barns. At the least 2 persons in the audience and at the most 1 300 persons. It might sound like a lie but it has been just as fun every single time – all the places in their own special way!
A big thank you to all the audiences, technicians, organizers and others involved for your help to make these wonderful performances happen. Without you it would all have been pretty meaningless!
It looks like UNPLUGGED will tour again next year, there are already a bunch of new dates confirmed and more is on the way, both to Spring and Autumn 2019. Get in touch if you want to be part of it. The adventure continues!
Here are a few reviews and comments from the audience:
“Thank you for a wonderful performance. I almost felt like I was being brought back to the breathtaking theatre experiences of the childhood. Many times I wasn’t breathing at all, sometimes I was laughing out loud and sometimes I wanted to help you by screaming watch out! Overwhelmed to say the least.”
– Christina Friström, arrangör Örkelljunga
“Saw Johan in Sundsvall this weekend! So goddamn funny stage charachter! Haven’t laughed this much for 4-5 years!”
– Bobbo Jäderfeldt
“You made such a success at Haparandas square and we are sooo proud to have had you all the way up North to us!”
– Kristin Tossavainen
“What a show you gave us inUmeå. Charming, with a striking message and an awesome ball control. I think that art and especially art through theatre/meeting/dialouge/show is really something. Not everyone have your capability to present it in such a relaxed, effortless way that is still affecting. You really succeed in this. To contribute to laughter, contemplation and awaken curiosity and emotions of others is an art in itself. A mixture of humor, seriousness and skill – charmingly packaged! You really sucked in catching the audience on all levels. A really successful performance.
– Ulrika Rigel
“Hello Johan! I just saw your show in Sundsvall. An amazingly great show! I wanted to say hi after but didn’t dare to. I am a juggler and have been juggling since 10 years. When I started 2008 you were (and still are) one of my biggest inspirations. The juggling has shaped my life in a really positive way and I have had the chance to meet so many great people and visit unexpected places. I just want to say thank you for being inspiring and for doing what you do. I hope I will dare to say hi next time.”
– Filip borglund
“Then like now, with a fantastic ability to adapt to both situation and circumstance. To keep an audience hypnotized for 60 minutes with the only means of some clubs, little balls and confetti requires its man. A simple concept allows the artist to lean back and trust his own ability and in Wellton’s case it is remarkable – some of his juggling acts seem to dissolve the laws of physics. Between raving roars many in the audience is laughing themselves short of breath. Here is an experience that gives more than 10 sessions of therapy.”
– Lasse Stenman, Haparandabladet
