INDIGO FLAMINGO is the new immersive show from Skånes Dansteater and Malmö Pride in Malmö (SE). Host and DJ Qarl Qunt invites the audience to step into the dreamlike clubland of INDIGO FLAMINGO, filled with the highs and lows of memories and ideas that appear out of the dance floor itself. 
It's a celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community, and the audience is invited to become part of the story in this two-hour interactive show, inspired by Malmö's queer people and places, past and present. Visitors can take to the dancefloor or simply soak up the atmosphere of the fabulous indigo-tinted world of lost memories and hidden surprises.
INDIGO FLAMINGO premieres on 3 July 2024. For five nights only, Skånes Dansteater will be transformed into INDIGO FLAMINGO, kicking off Malmö's Pride week. Choreography by Gwyn Emberton.

THE BASEMENT premieres on 23 May 2024 in collaboration with the Norwegian Opera and Ballet in Oslo (NO), with additional performances on 24-26 May 2024.

In a basement, we find four women, three dead and one alive. From the floor above, we hear the muffled voices of a men’s party. It’s sad. Until an arm twitches.

THE BASEMENT is on one level a delirious tribute to the millions of women throughout history doomed to a fate of early death and oblivion, guilty of nothing else than being women. On another level, it’s a confusing fable about reincarnation. If we wake up as someone else, are we able to fully represent that person or do we just find ourselves bewildered by weird costumes? While the men’s party continues above, the four women search for logic in their new reality. Or multiple realities. For more details and tickets go here.

JSK is funded by Fritt Ord Foundation, Norwegian Ministry of Culture, and by Danse- og teatersentrum / Performing Arts Hub Norway via the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Charlotte Engelkes is one of the city of Stockholm’s culture prize winners as she receives the Bellman Prize 2024. The Bellman Prize rewards a person who has portrayed or described Stockholm (SE) from an artistic perspective or contributed to giving a positive image of Stockholm as a city of culture. The municipal board decides on award winners and the award ceremony takes place in Stockholm City Hall on 28 May 2024.

The jury’s motivation: “Can you think of a more worthy Bellman prize winner than this nationally and internationally acclaimed director, choreographer, and performance artist who performs with the same intense intimacy both under an oak tree at Djurgården and on Europe’s biggest stages? With her peculiar and boundary-crossing approach, Charlotte Engelkes, in Bellman’s spirit, creates a completely own genre that deals with life’s big and small questions. Through a unique stage presence, she portrays human paradoxes and complicated social conditions. Performance art and opera. Review and literary history. Humor and seriousness. Community and solitude. At the same time. If it is about parental betrayal, acts of heroism, transplants, quantum physics or women’s fate. With poetic seriousness and refreshing inventiveness, she is a most vivid work of art.”

[IT IS CONTAINED IN...] is a tribute to water, our greatest life source. The duo Land Before Time explores the different qualities that water has and how water reminds us to stay connected to our natural surroundings and relearn some of our fundamental needs to become more human: Feel, adapt, remember, connect, communicate, be. The performance is an honest journey together through nothing and something, little and much, silence and harmonies, stillness and movement. 

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water" – Loren Eiseley.

Land Before Time is a creative duo consisting of Joanna Holewa Chrona and Yared Tilahun Cederlund, performing artists within the field of dancing and Deejaying, as well as choreographing, sound composing and producing their performances.

Aloun Marchal is the co-choreographer of the performance "_p/\rc___" with Marine Relinger (dramaturge) and Eric Minh Cuong Castaing (Artistic Direction Shonen Cie). In partnership with the Paris 2024 Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games the performance "_p/\rc___" initially presented at Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris (FR) in 2022, has been selected for the Cultural Olympics initiated by the Ministry of Culture of France. It will be recreated for this occasion.

With "_p/\rc___", Shonen Cie turns the extensive stage of the venue into a large park with renewed standards, from which specific dances are born, associating children with physical motor disorders and dancers.
Around them, with them, a swarm of telepresence robots, piloted by other children or adults with physical disabilities. Bodies meet. The dancers become both prostheses for the so-called impeded bodies and also slides, living merry-go-rounds. The robots push, pull, and draw with the children, carrying the stories and songs of the pilot-performers.

Performance date: 8 June 2024, Espace Germinal, in Fosses, north of Paris (FR). More info here.
