Iggy Malmborg

Iggy Lond Malmborg (1987) is a freelance actor and performance maker based in Malmö, Sweden. Though a formation in traditional acting (the Theatre academy of Malmö 06-10) his pieces span over a wide range of aesthetics and styles, both solo and collaborative work. His main artistic interest is to use the performance event as a model onto which the pieces discourse directly can be applied. By using strategies that can be compared to minimalism, he sheds light on the politics of theatre and read it as a hierarchical machine with (unconscious) patterns of inclusion and exclusion.

Since 2009 he is collaborating together with Johannes Schmit (DE) under the name White on White. In 2014 his last solo work b o n e r premiered at the Baltic Circle Festival in Helsinki, the piece has toured actively since to festivals such as Spielart (Münich), Auawirleben (Bern) and Oslo international theatre festival. During 2015 he premiered 99 Words for Void, a duo performance with Maike Lond Malmborg. The piece has since been presented in festivals as Le FAB (Bordeaux), Baltoscandal (Rakvere), Bastard (Trondheim) and Piccolo teatro (Milano).

His latest solo production Physics and Phantasma premiered at Kanuti Gildi SAAL (Tallinn) 2017, both 99 Words for Void and Physics and Phantasma tours actively during this season.
