Is there a place in our society for human flaws? And can we accept ourselves and each other as flawed products?

 

In between aisles, groceries and colourful advertising posters we meet customers and employees. A mosaic of stories; people in different crisis that become a community - a choir.  Songs of complaints and streams of thoughts are heard and shopping carts are filled. The grocery store - like the community - offers endless options. Customers try to make the right choice while navigating products and flawed products.

Flawed product is a site-specific performance in a grocery store by Liavaag/Lindberg. The performance is played during the opening hours of Rema 1000 stores. The show was presented in Trondheim, Verdal, Inderøy and Steinkjer and premiered in october 2019 with the collaboration of Rosendal Teater and Turneteater.
