The program starts with open workshops investigating the relationship between reading and choreography, the last workshops this year in our series of “Choreographed Reading Circles”. Everyone is welcome to join, and no preparation is needed. The rest of this fabulous day has been curated by Ellen Söderhult, who has invited a number of artists and choreographers, presenting three performances, a release for the latest edition of the magazine THIS CONTAINER and ending the evening with singalong karaoke!

12.00 – 14.00

Choreographed reading circle with Chloe Chignell.

“Listening to the underside: poems that leak” is a listening and writing format; it takesthree poems to which we listen in two ways; first for a question, second for an answer. We use this discursive structure to listen together, writing across and between each other, using the poem as our discourse. We can entangle our own understandings, through the poems we open a landscape of words, with each question a new hole and each answer a new surface. The workshop is in English.

14.30 - 16.30

Choreographed reading circle with Anna Bontha.

We do a reading, abundantly allowing, but also exceedingly strictly systematic, of a text (the proposal is a text inspired by ballet, but really any text). Like every system put into practice, this system allows for spaces to move around (literally and metaphorically), space for interpretation, space to: create slippages, hesitations, or if you want to: enhance and clarify. During the reading circle we make use of an arbitrary coding of the signs, in order to generate a kind of ”instant choreography”. Anyone is welcome to take part physically, or to join the reading (one word or many, loud, murmuring, fast, slow and everything in between, with emphasis or without, with feeling or without). You are also welcome to just sit and watch and listen.

16.45 – 17.00

Presentation and release for the magazine THIS CONTAINER and its collaboration with thecarrierbag festival. During the day a new editions of THIS CONTAINER will be released, and earlier editions presented and made available. For the freshest zine, Emilia Gasiorek and Sandra Liaklev Andersson will be guest editors and collaborate with the editors in chief of THIS CONTAINER: Chloe Chignell, Ellen Söderhult and Maia Means.

17.00 – 17.30

”one for all, all for one”

by and with Emilia Gasiorek and Sandra Liaklev Andersen

‘one for all, all for one’ is a work that deals with ways of co-existing, togethering and relating to our surroundings and each other. It is a feminist investigation into ways of acquiring knowledge without creating hierarchies and ways of sharing power across (a)symmetrical structures. We work with leading together, practices that you cannot do alone and symmetry in and between bodies, as well as in the decision making. We consider (a)symmetry as matters of perception and perspective, where two sides affirm each other and relate to a constructed core. We wish to present softness according to less binary understandings of active and passive. We believe in softness as a sustainable and strong force and explore this through texture, level of sound and level of virtuosity.

18.00 – 18.50

”SHANE ET AL.” (Pilot)

By and with Ellen Söderhult, Anna Haglund, Oda Brekke, Eliisa Erävalo, Lisa Schåman, Lisen Pousette, Cathryn Humpreys and Corinne Mustonen.

Choreography: Ellen Söderhult

The choir has a history of backing up a soloist or protagonist, but to sing in a choir can also be to temporary submit to becoming a part of a collective protagonist. Choir singing and choir dancing can even work as a camouflaging of the individual self, easing the burden to perform, improve, sell, and fulfill one’s self or normalized ideas about such a self. Shane et al. explores the choir as hero and the hero as the one who proposes or shows a different reality in which different relationships, behaviors and narratives thrive. Wit the choir as a temporary singing and dancing group - a body of many voices as one - polyphonic dancing and choreographic singing will be explored, studied and activated. Instead of the etymological meaning of choreography, to “write the choir” (choreo - choir: in the Antique sense of the word a singing- and dancing group) the project wants to investigate the (made up) “choreo-study”: to study through practicing ensemble dancing and choir singing, to read dances or movement materials or songs “sound material” as a choir. Study is proposed as a form of togethering, and knowledge production as a collective activity based in practice. Dancing and singing is explored as “group-body expressions”.

19.00 – 19.30

”I Don't Have a Title Anymore 2.0 Köttis edition”

by and with Vanessa Virta

”I Don't Have a Title Anymore 2.0 Köttis edition” is a performance based on Vanessa Virta´s BA research on rap music within an art environment. The performance is situated in an institutional context in the privileged Western world and deals with frustrations accumulated this context. Köttis 2.0 edition is a further worked version of the performance, informed by Virta´s experience of dying and coming back to life after a heart failure.

19.30 – 20.30

Singalong karaoke

Snacks and drinks will be served in the Singalong karaoke hour
