Things in my mouth sheds light on the human voice. If we think about it, one of our strangest attributes as living creatures is our vocal tool. It is a significant part of our identity, and it defines how other people see us. Yet, it is completely invisible, impossible to handle physically. It is the medium of language, knowledge, skills and emotions. It is how we reach out to other people, make relations and express ourselves creatively. Usually the voice is perceived as highly unique, just like a fingerprint or the iris of our eyes – in this performance though, something totally different is suggested; the voice is a virus, the language a symptom and we are nothing but host animals.

The world becomes a little quirkier once seen through the lens of theater maker Iggy Lond Malmborg. His texts are witty and sometimes dark, but always well performed, original and cleverly written.

Iggy Lond Malmborg (1987) visited Black Box teater twice before, with b o n e r back in 2016 and Physics and Phantasma at Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival in March 2019. He is an actor and performance maker based in Malmö and Tallinn.



“The many small surprises and the humour keeps up the intensity of the show, and as they start telling dry, double pun jokes, you just have to enjoy it.” – Klassekampen
