Lotta Erikson has moved between fiction and documentary since she graduated from the Dramatic Institute in 1990.

Her interest in the outside world has meant that she has often written drama with a political edge where society as a theater is explored. She works with both tragic and comic stories and the experience of the world as absurd and unpredictable characterizes much of what she does. Humor and man’s attempt to live and be happy is a constant source and is evident in her work in both the shorter and the longer format. In addition to writing screenplays and drama, Lotta is a recurring host in the program Godmorgon, the world of Swedish Radio, has made award-winning documentaries and worked on SVT, Swedish Radio and the BBC.
