2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;
Persona 1: WHAT YOU WANT TO BE CONSIDERED AS
Persona 2: WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE CONSIDERED AS
This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!
A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND
A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.
2FACED1 is a state of mind, 2FACED1.com is a display-window for this mindset and the network of 2FACED1 includes all of you progressive non-stereotypes with a double perspective on identity.

Question: What item wore Alexander Salzberger at his first day of school at Södra Latin's Teater Linje? Clue in a link in this post..? Email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org
It's a festival with several acts so if you want to be sure to not miss Alex you should be at the Kägelbanan stage where he is performing well in time before 20.00 since it might get packed otherwise. Schedule.
The reviews has been pretty amazing so far (all articles in Swedish):
“Salzberger [...] successfully maintains the dark core of the story, even though there are rarely more than seconds in between laughs” - Jonas Holmberg, Expressen
Om att växa upp i ett hippiekollektiv. Om att skaffa sig en identitet som inte är "svensk". Om att ljuga om en pappa som man aldrig mött. Om att ha joggingbyxor under de tajta jeansen för att man ser för smal ut. Om att motvilligt vara klassens mobbare. Om att inte få åka med sina halvsyskon på den årliga familjesemestern. Om att röka hasch. Om att ta heroin. Om att ha en god vän som blir skjuten i skolan. Om att försöka bryta med en alkoholiserad mamma. Om att sälja in sin egen berättelse. Om att våga ha en dröm.
Alexander Salzberger är välbekant för Backa Teaters publik. Denne mästare i publikkontakt gjorde en minnesvärd roll som "Klitoriskillen" i Anna Vnuks Kött och kunde senast ses som Josef K i Processen. Nu är han tillbaka med en egen spokenwordmonolog eller som han själv beskriver det : "En stand-up comedy utan punchlines".
Som 21-åring satte Alexander Salzberger upp sin egen monolog Måsarna skrattar sig hesa på Södra teatern i Stockholm. Det blir nu första gången sedan 2007 som Alexander återigen ställer sig på scen med helt eget skrivet material.
You know my major popstar client, the one that is super talented in all things she puts her mind into? So even when she's taking pictures whit her phone, choosing a graphic app and so on - we know the outcome of it will always be spelled A R T (big letters). I will now present Robyn's first graphic artwork here on 2FACED1:
Oh happy days! Finally has one of my favorite DJ's at the moment; Pjotr cooked up a small live mix to the hovering 2FACED1 souls!
Pjotr, one pf the people behind the notorios club GUMM4AN, will bless the dancefloor at the #snsxadidas party tomorrow, like only he can. I know I will go uuuh and aaaah like I always do when he spins. Before him we have the favorite tunes of no other than Lady NHU DUONG, home from Berlin just for the event!
Not invited but should be? Hollur at my facebook and I see what could do.
The #2FACED1 factor on the last tune "At the end of the day we have no answers, there is no instruction manual, we're searching for what not exist"
When you search they pop up, I was looking for something new exciting for the adidas Originals party on Friday and whooomp there they were! And btw I've one of the ones who heard Saturday, Mondays upcoming single, loovely gem again will be comin your way!
Photo from Mars 12...lobely shitrt by Lena Buss (order it on demand) Damir Doma pants I've gotten from him (they're the perfect black wide pants, now when slightly shorter). the photo object is tired as h e l l. She's thinking didn't DN learn a single thing out of the Lilla Hjärtat debate?
My soul is tired... But I'm back on it next week, playing records at El Perro Del Mar's concert here on Saturday! Aaaand before that Friday 30 th big party with adidas Originals + SnS, invitation in a mailbox if you been nice this year.
Robyn in the special jacket we ordered from sweetie Tom Nijhuis, an adidas Originals / Opening Cermony skirt and KENZO body. The yellow top is something me and Lena Buss developed back in February for Robyn's Grammis dress (by 5th Avenue shoe rapair. We didn't win, so you didn't get to see it .-/, blame the Grammis - Judges, not us #StillPissed).
The Music: The Michael Jackson The Company: The World Renomened Cirque De Soleil, which equals expectations on amazing scenography, costumes, acrobats, yes basically the full package of what a big scale show should be like. The Dancers: Salah as a main character, a person I know and has seen progress into the most amazing dancer and artist through the years: One of very few who has an own personality + skills enough to star in a show about the great and now late Michael Jackson, and a person who could pull off a Vegas show on the right side of the line. Also add other prominent dancers as the Twins. The hype: My inevitable concert partner and huge MJ fan; Mela, full of stories of the amazing show in Vegas a year earlier.
Amazing acrobats, great scenography, and an over all concept that would have worked perfectly as the frame IF the dancers in it would have been artist to the full extent. That was NOT the case, I can nearly believe what I saw; sloppy, un-engaged and so far from on-point dancers. No Salah, no Twins. I could have done with tired acrobats, but dancers, dancers?! Michael Jackson was D A N C E embodied, he was timing, he was a perfectionist. This would make Mr Jackson turn in his grave.
Because Michael Jackson's music should be, and I'm sure will be, hailed as culture on a world heritage scale. With that comes responsibility if one are about to set up the biggest tribute show in the world. I don't think there is many music pieces that means so much for folks under the age of, say 50. Innumerable people all over the world have such a strong relation to his music and artistry, to turn the privilege to have the rights of using MJ's name and music into something this sloppy, dancing wise, as this, even if just in Sweden -it's just not acceptable. I might sound harsh but this becomes a disgrace to his memory, and the perfectionism he stood for.
Below is the trailer. at least featering Salah and the Twins.
P.S. The rumour says Salah signed off two weeks ago, on this level replace him with another artist with his/her own style, not a watered down copy.
says the producer/DJ Blawan and for me that's the key to his greatness, cause it all about the drums for every dancing critter worth to mention. Martank a.k.a MRSK for the initiated techno-fans was the one who put me on to Blawan, and the lad has been a favorite since then. Me, Vigert and Haris (one of the organizers tonight) had a blast when A Guy Called Gerals played in Stockholm some while ago and I have the expectation that this will turn out into something similar tonight, could be one of the most exciting DJ shows in Stockholm for quite a while!
"Blawan has always packed menace into his tracks—his percussion doesn't just smack you in the face; it toys with you in a bear-about-to-break-his-fast kind of way—but he's never really sounded as psychotic as he does here"

”Decida is a pop cultural nerd, music fiend and global inner-city citizen based in Stockholm. A "Jackie" of many trades who realized that the message is more important than the type of media you're working with, She has a background in social studies and graphic design, and is currently a Creative Director and a stylist or "Stylosopher", as she likes to say. "I'm one who uses clothing as codes for identity, knows the brand history both the official one and the one of the streets and sees style as a reaction of the society it's created in" she says."
