The Show Must Go ON!

by

Helene Kvint

Presented by Festival for the Independant Field of Performing Arts in collaboration with Toaster.

In the performing arts, you can never be sick, can you?” asks Helene Kvint in The Show Must Go On!

In this performance, a female actor’s personal #metoo experience is framed in the form of a tempestuous, funny and touching stand-up show. The sexist and unfair working conditions in the performing arts industry have left their mark on her body, until one day it dramatically says no. This is followed by a period of illness which means, among other things, that she had to cancel going on stage – something that is normally completely unheard of! The performance is based on personal experience from the performing arts industry, but it is a story about situations that most people can recognise, regardless of which industry they work in. The work asks how, as an actor – and particularly as a woman – you can ignore illness and severe pain, because the show must go on!

Helene Kvint is an independent stage artist, performer and actor who trained at Cantabile 2. She is a co-founder of the performance groups Second Hand Women (CZ) and CoreAct. CoreAct was closed down in 2021.
