The Sleeping Carnival

By Beatrice Aurore & The Make Believers


The producing duo Beatrice Lindholm (Beatrice Aurore) & Linn Oscarsson (Lady Rivet) created a mystical vintage inspired circus show, which had its premiere at Teater Tre in Stockholm March 2018 with a sold-out show and high praise from audience members - some even claiming it to be ”among the best shows I’ve ever seen”. The project is a crossover between live music and circus & other performing arts such as dancing and burlesque.


The song lyrics are in many of the songs exploring darker themes such as violence, drug/alcohol abuse and unhealthy relationships. The main theme in the show is a mix or clash between darkness and fun and sparkling circus atmosphere. The idea of the work for the producing duo was to present many of the amazing female circus and variety performers they have come across during their years as performers and let them create their own choreographies within their own disciplines, to the music and lyrics of Art Pop musician Beatrice Aurore.


anverso

By Iria Arenas


anverso is the result of three weeks of intensive research with the students ‘SOZO visions in motion’. This project was the closing of an artistic residency program in Kassel, Germany.


During this period of time, research was done on the idea of ‘how to embody the loss of individual identity’. In this project, the performers express a deep anxiety about the future of materialist civilisation, in which the freedom and creativity of the individual are subordinated to the capitalist system represented as a bizarre hybrid monster of human body parts.


During the performance the audience experience how to watch bodies in a different way. The performers are seen as asexual bodies without facial expressions and they move as strange entities. Naked human bodies are transformed into something else, non-human creatures. Explore the idea of making a body monster in movement as a metaphor for the global system and the actual loss of our individual identities in our society.


Dirty Corset

By Bang Average Theatre


For you we three’ve a tale a little strange:

Of gender-benders, sex and manly mange;

Bloody motherhood, ill-got syphilis;

It’s emerged from a tatty chrysalis.

In 400 years, you’d think we’d’ve changed

And yet we are all still broken and stained.


Bang Average Theatre brings you back to the Restoration Period, when women first appeared on stage. They integrate original playtexts with new text, movement pieces and mask-work to tie together a story of the world then that reflects the world now.


"We want to show their world - the theatre, the disease, the sexual desires, the struggle for freedom - through our surreal, silly, modern lens.
