On May 10 we will finally have the Gothenburg premiere for the performance Skirtpower! It feels amazing to present Skirtpower at our home turf when we visit Folkteatern’s main stage on May 10-11.
Skirtpower is about the skirt as an ambiguous symbol of our society’s view on our bodies. About different codes for masculinity and femininity and expressions of sexuality. That the skirt, throughout history, has been a garment communicating masculinity and power, but how today it’s so clearly a feminine garment. Skirtpower is a study on forbidden bodies and movements in skirt, about sexuality and power. And about tenderness.
“Skirtpower breathes everything from the most fragile to raw sexuality, and the interaction with the audience is at times almost defiant. What I saw on stage was strength, beauty and sublime sensuality in its most beautiful form. It was three professional dancers who treated us to an amazing performance, plain and simple.” – Karin Noomi Karlsson, Scenkonstguiden
