Since the premiere in April last year, we’ve performed Skirtpower at a large number of venues throughout the region, including Vara konserthus and Regionteater Väst in Uddevalla. We’ve also visited Östhammar, Uppsala and Umeå, but so far we haven’t presented the performance in Gothenburg. Until now.
On May 10th-11th we have the great pleasure of presenting Skirtpower at the main stage at Folkteatern in Gothenburg. We hope you will all join us for the Gothenburg premiere of this amazing performance!
Earlier this year Skirtpower took home the award for “Sensory Orgasm of the Year” the 2019 edition of Scenkonstgalan 2019 in Gothenburg. From the jury’s motivation:
“A piece that activates our senses. It vibrates, we tremble. Our pupils dilate and close in time with the pulsing lights, in time with the pounding of the music and the movements of the bodies. A liberating dance that reminds us to give our bodies the room they need to be fantastic, and not to let anything stop us.”
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.
The performance is presented on Friday May 10th at 19.00 and on Saturday May 11th at 18.00.
Tickets are between 140-230 sek/each.
