SINCERELY
SOLO

What’s the beat of singlehood in the worlds most independent country?

Helena Engberg, performer and DJ, has been single for ten years. In a performance that looks closer at relationship norms through politics and personal experience, emotions ranging from being vulnerable to feeling supported are mixed and synched. Sincerely Solo takes the pulse of the single-experience, and offers a sanctuary for the lonely. What does being single sound like in the worlds most independent country?

Sweden is ranked as ”the most single country in the world”. The number of single households have increased as equality has become key. Women have gained better financial rights and since 2016 single women are entitled to assisted conception through the Swedish health care system. Alternative families and self sufficient singles are not a minority anymore. But the heteronorm of the romantic couple still owns the narrative. Those who deviate are constantly reminded and forced to adjust, as the dating industry cashes in on marketing romance as the natural solvent. 

In Sincerely Solo, PotatoPotato puts the single in the spotlight and fills the room with her story. Is she liberated? Is she lonely? Is she a product, even though she could never be owned? Is this a choice, or was she not chosen? In a nightclub inspired performance Helena Engberg invites the audience to share a sensual embodiment of single life beyond the broken records of the entertainment industry.
