Everything Wrong With You Is Beautiful (Tina Sederholm / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2018

Maybe you don’t need to hide your flaws. Maybe, instead, you need to write a tribute to every single failure you’ve ever had and then tell everyone willing to stop and listen. Tina Sederholm does just this, offering an incredibly touching and well-crafted spoken word meditation on her inability to let go of her inner child and her hellbent insistence on choosing the self-destructive ‘career’ path of poet, having turned a blind eye to the woeful pleas of her disappointed father long ago. A beautifully humbling and thoughtful storytelling experience dripping with hope, acceptance, and grounding self-mockery, Sederholm’s stunning set reduced myself and other audience members to the sensitive and teary-eyed children we’re all really hiding inside. I couldn’t stop myself from buying her book afterwards.

Banshee Labyrinth, until 26 Aug.
