Iggy Lond Malmborg is a freelance actor and performance maker based in Malmö, Sweden. Though a formation in traditional acting (the Theatre academy of Malmö) his pieces spans over a wide range of aesthetics and styles, both solo and collaborative work. Malmborgs main artistic interest is to use the actual situation of the performance event as a model onto which the pieces discourse directly can be applied.

Since 2009 he is collaborating together with Johannes Schmit (GER) under the name White on White. The duo runs a performance series, until today including 6 autonomous works. The series aims to analyze hidden methods of inclusion and exclusion art-spaces contain. Instead of following the trend of questioning the theatrical norm through temporary representation of minorities, they intend to make the standard itself vulnerable by framing it. Thereby giving – an often overseen – power a face.

In 2014 his latest solo work b o n e r premiered at the Baltic Circle Festival in Helsinki. The piece has toured actively during 2015 to festivals and venues such as AUAWIRLEBEN (Bern), Sophiensäle (Berlin), Bastard (Trondheim) and Spielart (Münich) and it will also continue touring during 2016. His most recent work 99 Words for Void (2015) is a cooperation with Maike Lond Malmborg.
