Last weekend was spent in Gothenburg with my good friend Dan; specifically to see another very talented friend on stage, Vee; who was brilliant in a Swedish version of Tony Kushner’s play ‘The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism With a Key to the Scriptures’ at Gothenburg City Theatre. Though I can’t understand a word of Swedish, I could still enjoy the spectacle armed with knowledge of the story and its themes; and the play was visually stimulating with an innovative revolving set, and of course marvelous acting which transcends language.
Anyway I must also mention that the light in Gothenburg is so pure, as clear as the sound of a bell. The city is so clean and the buildings are so well preserved that I had trouble believing that some were as old as they were. Here are some of my snappily taken photographs:
