CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL will show at the Passage Festival in Helsingör (DK) on 27-29 Jul 2022. Read more here.

CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL is a staged choir piece with 12 singers, experienced from the edge of a swimming pool. In a physical study of water resonance, the singers float in weightless sequences while pondering on the paradoxes of a welfare state. CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL is a sensitivity analysis of the nature of inequality. A choreographic portrayal of the welfare state and its many flaws. The singers become a group searching for a common voice, insurgently longing for meaning. In their polyphonic strive, they uncover the imbalance that a class-based society creates.

The work is created by Convoi Exceptionnel and Jon R. Skulberg in close collaboration with composer Lil Lacy, dramaturge Astrid Hansen Holm, conductor Mathias Skaarup Sørensen, designer Kit Wan, and the vocal ensemble Ensemble Edge.

DANCE OF THE FISHERMAN is a site-specific performance created for different harbours in collaboration with Irish theater director Caroline McSweeney. The premiere will be in Espergærde harbour at the Passage Festival in Helsingør (DK) on 25 Jul 2022. More info and tickets here. Watch a trailer here.

The performance will be an imagistic walking tour, where the audience is physically drawn into the world of the fisherman. With toes in the water and fingers busy untangling the net, the audience will listen to local stories, surrounded by an evocative soundtrack and all together under the sunset sky. Performance is created in collaboration with the local communities. The communities' history, culture, and local fishing habits will therefore affect the outcome of the performance. In the Danish performance in Espergærde harbour, Taneli and Caroline are working together with sound artist Esa Mattila and two performers Lisbeth Sonne Andersen and Sofia Kistol.

STORIES by the Swedish choreographer Charlotta Öfverholm is a life cabaret where age is a plus. 22 brave people between 70-83 years, enter the stage and share their life stories at the Stockholm (SE) summer stage Parkteatern (Vitabergsparken) 16-17 Aug 2022. Read more here.

Charlotta Öfverholm is performing in TITANAS at the Festival Internacional de Teatre de Tarragona on 31 Aug 2022. TITANAS is a meeting between Sol Picó, Anna Ventura Natsuki and Charlotta Öfverholm. The purest, wildest, and most genuine energies and forces emerge identities fade, skins are exchanged and a dialogue begins between that multiplicity of entities that struggle within us to excel. Wrapped in the music of Judith Farrés and the voices of a choir of twelve women, this triad of warrior goddesses, decidedly powerful, euphoric, and optimistic, is reborn creating a new ideal, utopian and fantastic universe, with no rules to fulfill or archetypes in which to fit in.

10 artists will be working in the Mikaelsparken in Uppsala (SE) with a choreographic, visual and co-human project on 13 Aug 2022. SU-EN Butoh Company, Anna Westberg, Lise-Lotte Norelius/Sören Runolf, Hiroko Tsuchimoto, and others participate in A ROOTLESS K.R.O.P.P in Uppsala (SE).

The theme is being rootless in a world that is rapidly changing. Like a plant, growing without soil, directly in water, we might also need to adapt our relations to the earth as we know it. The sense of freedom that comes out of being homeless and rootless is of great value for the artist and dancer. Even if we do stay in our own (human) shape and work with form, we spend most of our time breaking through these forms. On 10-12 Aug 2022, the artists will prepare relations and artworks in the park - you are welcome to drop by! More info will be published here

HISTORY OF SEXUALITY tours to theatre Momentum in Odense (DK) on 10-11 Aug 2022.

HISTORY OF SEXUALITY is an interactive DIY performance about sex. In this queer and quirky performance, troublemakers and performance artists Andreas Constantinou and Annika B. Lewis shamelessly address the taboos and desires, the power and social grip that sex has over us all. Wearing anything from, well… nothing to rabbit-, bear- and cuddly sex monster costumes, they take you on a wild ride through their own histories of sexuality; a living archive in a simple do-it-yourself style, that encourages you to take back the power over your body and sexuality. Because sex sells. Sex rules.

The performance opens up some good talks and reflections on the topic of sexuality, which for many may be associated with shame. ‘History of sexuality’ is a fresh, playful and liberating breath that encourages the audience to take ownership of their own narrative and their own sexuality.” - Scenekanten

THE HISTORY OF SEXUALITY is produced by Kassandra Production in collaboration with Bora Bora – dance and visual theatre, The Genderhouse Queer Arts Festival, Theatre FÅR302.Supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Aarhus Kommunes Kulturudviklingspulje, Københavns Scenekunsudvalg, Ottarfonden.
