Sviten 2022

Additional Playwriter, Director

In 2022, Lisa combined her passion for theatre and film into the fusion piece “SVITEN”, a theatre play where the performers interacted with media excerpts such as narrative film, security cameras and social media as a way of unravelling the mystery of what happened the night a young woman died. 

“The Suite” was based on a popular radiodrama, 8 x 30 minute police interrogations surrounding the death of a 17-year old girl at a party with four very wealthy men from the Stockholm bourgoise.

The piece focuses on economic and sexual power, peer pressure, crossed boundaries, and exploitation.
