WHAT: Crimes of Passion is an immersive and participatory performance examining the downsides of romantic love. That it’s a Ponzi-scheme which entices millions of people every year – especially the young – and deprives them of the opportunity to live a rich and meaningful life. Crimes of Passion comes in the form of a congregation that has shouldered the responsibilty of giving the victims of romantic love an alternative community. A communion that comes with a price. The performance is for everyone who ever felt the pain of love, regardless of current or former relationship status.

LANGUAGE: Crimes of Passion is performed in English 3.5 – 10.5 and in Swedish 8.4 – 27.4 and 11.5 – 14.5.

DURATION: Approx. 3 hours.

TICKETS: The number of tickets is limited. Book at The congregation is free of charge, but donations in the form of cash are accepted on site.
