Therese Ramstedt is a performance maker, writer and arts producer working across a range of forms and expressions. In 2017, she wrote and performed one woman play Mission Abort to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, The Space Theatre and Vault Festivals. The humorous and hard-hitting play about one woman’s experience of abortion is still touring the UK and Sweden (as part of Riksteatern’s, Swedish National Theatre’s, initiative VASS). In 2013, her play Lager was a finalist in Sweden's biggest scriptwriting competition NY TEXT! and her subsequent production Sedan was a recipient of a culture grant from the City of Gothenburg. Humour and song are at the heart of her performance-making, and alongside her own creative work Therese works extensively as a singer - as a soloist and in collaboration with other musicians and performance artists. Current projects include working with Knut Olav Rygnestad on music set to texts by Swedish poet Karin Boye, and she is also part of ensemble London Contemporary Voices with whom she has worked with artists including Imogen Heap and Nitin Sawhney. Therese is a Soho Theatre Writers' Lab alumna, studied theatre at the University of Gothenburg and obtained postgraduate training on Rose Bruford's MA Actor/Performer Training.
