At this dual event with Charlotta Öfverholm, Scandinavia House presents the live performance Lucky (2018) and the film Dance or Die (2019).

Lucky is a one-woman show created and performed by Charlotta Öfverholm. This performance expresses longing for happiness: to die young, to live forever, or just in the moment, with a language of dance, text and music. The lighting designer is Tobias Hallgren. In Dance or Die, filmmaker Anders J. Larsson followed the artist over three years and the result is an intimate documentary about an inspiring woman and her raison d’être: dance.

Charlotta Öfverholm has constantly strived for perfection. And since the start of her company Compagnie Jus de la Vie 1995, where Charlotta serves as artistic director, she has created over 25 productions, which have toured all over Europe, North and South America and Africa. Her work is physical dance theatre with depth, irony, brutality and humor, with a devoted following in her homeland of Sweden as well as worldwide. Now at the age of 50, her will of steel remains as unbending as ever.
