What if that which you identify with suddenly disappeared? Who would you be then? (IM)PERFEKT is a solo show about identity, beauty and labels. Sometimes you need to lose who you thought you were in order to discover who you truly are.
Actress Jannica Olin was the stereotypical blonde blue eyed Swede. Her long hair had always been a big part of her identity. Until suddenly, she lost it all. In (IM)PERFEKT, Jannica takes us on a journey of exploring and uncovering that which we think we are, have to be and maybe, ultimately aren’t.

"Jannica brings us into her story with a question for the audience. Then with a dazzling array of characters - doctors, her disease “alopecia,” hair, eyebrows, google, wigs - she takes us on her journey from baldness to wholeness. As hilarious as it is moving!"

"There are a plethora of one-person shows at the Hollywood Fringe, this is undoubtedly one of the best examples of the form. The story is worth telling, and is beautifully and artfully told. - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

"Jannica has done something really important here. She has taken her unique story and told it in a way that generalizes to experiences we have all had. Jannica made us understand how we allow our identities to be constructed by external forces, and how we might have an opportunity to reject such forces and instead choose to define ourselves. We not only sympathize and empathize with her, but we feel the parallels with our own struggles. Most importantly, she took us to a conclusion that showed that if she was able to find her footing and continue to search for her truths, we all can find ways to conquer our challenges and find ourselves."

"Jannica has a creative way of beginning the play that I haven’t seen any solo artists do before. I loved the many different wigs and the sequence in which she tried them all on to show how each one was a new personality. The character of Google was hilarious and on-point. Eyebrow and eyelash were clever and so adorable. The feather boa was perfect for eyelash! I so appreciated that she ended the play on a hopeful note that left us wanting to accept ourselves more than we did before when we walked into the room. This show is perfect for college or high school audiences. Especially high school, when teenagers are just beginning to find their identities."
