Aug. 11, 2022

Worked with the Good Talents in Fittja.  Always fascinating to work with the teens there.  Gig at Vinterviken was full of magic moments.  Nice crowd.  Workshops in Stockholm and Malmö coming up.  I have a busy September and hope to squeeze a workshop in Sept 16 and 17.  A weekend intensive.  If you are not on the email list send me one stephenrap@gmail. com.  I am designing workshops in the woods.  I walk in them a lot.  It's where I prefer to be.  I would like to use the shape of things there as inspiration.  I will be working with the Circus School at Uniarts in Autumn.  I am developing material with an actor in Austin Texas over zoom which has been extremely rich and a joy to boot.  

UPDATE May 28. 2022

A Play on Words

Long time since an update.  I'm bad at it.  I am not a fan of screen time. But I am a fan of interest fans.  Or interested non fans.  Or even letting haters know what I am up to.  I have been writing my ass off and hanging with my tree friends.  Performed a brand-spankin' new one-person show A PLAY ON WORDS, at TeaterTribunalen.  Damn, that was fun. I think I have 4 or 5 monodramas in the cartridge.  Had a gig just last night with Amanda H. Bang.  Music at Fullerstgård.  Fantastic sound.  Nice room.  Loved it.  I'll be back.  Rockin' workshop with Dans Alliansen in March.   A workshop at Mosaic Teater, actors with Downs Syndrom.   Shiiiit. What a blast of love and affection and appreciation and sincerity. LOVE IT.  And a workshop at Kungliga Ballet Skola... 7 weeks with 17-year-olds..  MORE.  Did a workshop with my friends at The Good Talents in Fitja.  INTERNATIONAL meetings.  So great cracking this up with these people.  My heart swells as I write and remember. I am so freekin' fortunate to be able to be invited to get to know people in this way.  I have another workshop at Good Talents coming up in June.  I need to put more gigs of all kinds together.  Tomorrow maybe.  Music, Workshops, Theater.  Maybe Gotland this summer.  Yea.

UPDATE Jan, 2, 2022 

More than great workshop with professional dancers in Göteborg, primarily from the Opera ballet company.  FRUITFUL it was.  As was the workshop with Hyper Island.  Also, a blast working a few hours with Söder Latin gymnasium theater students.  More work with such hungry, enthusiastic teens please.  Yes... in fact, I will be working with weekly with the elder gymnasium students at The Swedish Royal Ballet School for several weeks in the Springtime.    I had a great solo gig at Larry's Corner.  Got a lot out in that hour and a half  flurry of spoken words and song.  I am conjuring lots of fascinating, rewarding, fun work with all sorts of folks as we speak here in the beginning of 2022.  


UPDATE NOV, 2, 2021

I haven't updated for so long I forgot how.  Lots of Zoom workshops, some TV gigs, Bäckström, and  Love and Anarchy, ...workshops with Hyper Island, lots more to come with them, still loving the workshops,  Writing A LOT.  Fantastic experience directing an outdoor Circus production in a Swedish Ghetto,  Rinkeby.  "GÅRDEN".  So exuberantly received by the locals.  Great to hang out and pal around with the kids there.  A breakthrough adventure was writing and performing a new one-man show: AGGREGATE OF A NON-SEQUENTIAL EPIC ETC.  My sixth but with a 20 interval from the last one. It worked.  I like it. I want to perform it plenty of times.  I think I wrote enough for 10 different shows.  Next week a workshop with The Good Talents in Fittja, Course for Change in Vaddö Folkhögskola, and the staff at Hyper Island.  Cowabunga.  I need to get on it with booking gigs of all kinds.  I need a producer.  Anyone out there?  There's a gold mine in here.


Update Aug. 2020

Pandemic introduction to Zoom while working with the Royal Ballett Skola Stockholm.  It worked and I developed it through a series of free workshops with past participants from all over the world.  I have done many now with an overwhelming response.  I LOVE IT.  Make contact with interest.  I can set up workshops to fit various needs.  Right now my  Zoom workshop is in-depth intensive six-session workshops, 90 minutes each. Max 6 people.  Make contact with interest

Also have been working on a couple of TV/Film projects directed by Patrik Eklund.   A couple pandemic safe concerts.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED... break the time barrier, visit the other side (another dimension) allow material to present itself... As Red Venus says....

Wounded Animals and Alla Hästar Hemma 3/25/16

I co-created and directed Angela Wands WOUNDED ANIMALS which premiered at Subcase 

On March 11, 2016.  It was a screaming success and is said to be the hit of the entire showcase. Wolfgang Hoffaman will be presenting the piece at the Edinbourg Fringe in August.   Angela and I had a blast pulling this one off.  Its a powerful, emotional, hilarious piece of Scene Art.  


And Last Monday, March 21, under my direction Östra Teater premierd ALLA HÄSTAR HEMMA by Gunilla Boethius.  The work was greatly appreciated and there is great promise that it will have a long touring schedule.  The goal of this piece is specifially to get people with various disfunctions into the work force.  A joy working with the actors  Maria Lindström, Joakim Sikberg, and Petter Billengren.  

Update                                           Jan. 31, 2016

The mini Rappaport Festival in Munster Germany went beyond expectations. Many thanks to Ludger Schnieder and Johannes Fundermann for having me at their visionary Theater im Pumpenhaus.  I did a solo gig (MOCA/UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL, the piece I directed with Johan Wellton,  ON THE LOOSE and THE STEPHEN RAPPAPORT BAND had a great gig as a closer.  I also let two workshops while I was there.  Led a great INTUITION IN ACTION workshop for DansAlliansen.  And I am currently directing WOUNDED ANIMALS, the Angela Wand show premier Feb. 25.  I will begin directing Alla Hästar Hemma on Feb. 8 for Ostra Teater.  To maintain sanity, I'll be setting up something on some stage on short notice soon... probably a solo gig with music and monologues. 




Satans Demokrati                             Nov. 15, 2015


A massive installation/performance directed by Py Huss Wallen and Jimmy Meurling.  My part Pontius Pilate/The Minister one of the leading rolls I share with Angela Wand (The Devil) and Melize Karlge (Margarita/Master and Jesus).  This is an enormous endeavor incorporating a mass of makers.  Hundreds.  I was hesitant to take the job and I am so glad I did.  Great to work with so many committed artists.   Premier was a couple days ago.  The audience was... well... they seemed to be way more than pleased.   Performs Wed thru Sunday.  Last night New Years Eve. Dec. 31, 2015.  Last I heard the entire run is sold out.  Where there is a will, there is a way.



After Poland I had a great solo gig in Hamra Gotland at the Krog, a yearly tradition that just gets better and better.  Ran a five day intensive workshop at Improv. Studion Skåneg. 63.  Had a great solo gig in a old school house near Uppsala... what an ambience... Did some teaching at Actor Studio Stockholm... super.... Had a enchanting time  with Amanda Hofman-Bang at a gig in  Vintervikens Trädgård... the yearly candle festival.  Nice to play for several hundred attendive individiuals beneath the stars and lit by hundreds of candles.  Literally just came back from viewing BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS... a short film playing on SVT 2.  Totally forgot to go to the Premier of MODUS an upcomming TV drama.  They say it was good.  I like my part in it.  A Southern homophobic hate preacher/killer.  Nice.  I will try to keep more up to date.... until then...
