6.–8.9 2018


An international festival of performance art and a public discussion at Fylkingen in Stockholm on 6–8 September 2018.
The project invites artists and theorists from African and Nordic countries to use performance as a means to deconstruct knowledge and examine the power relations of today.

Can performative artistic processes challenge the dominating historical narratives? If the fixed history of the west used to be the reference to revisit and remember the past, now it is crucial to bring performance to the forefront of meaning making.

Participating artists:
Christian Etongo (Cameroon), Anthea Moys (South Africa), Serge Olivier Fokoua (Cameroon/Canada), Diana Soria Hernandez (Finland/Mexico), Gøril Wallin (Norway), Gitte Sætre (Norway), Nathalie Mba Bikoro (Gabon/Germany), Valeria Montti Colque (Sweden) and workshop participants.
