Even Steven plays with humor and entertainment in order to talk about quite basic issues: fairness, empathy and desire (pheromones). Even Steven is basically a poetic rumination, using fragments of comedy and other standard formats as vehicles. Even Steven employs the - equally heroic and sad - trope of the entertainer. It conjures up an atmosphere of low-budget, intimate spectacle.
Even Steven begins as an amateur stand-up routine. Westphlane is not a stand-up comedian, which makes this first part of the performance painful to watch. But before long the performance evolves into a touching, at times embarrassing dance performance.
Even Steven is supported by a grant from the Swedish Arts Council.
