In a few weeks we’re going to Uppsala to present the performance Skirtpower during Scenkonstdag 2018, which is a showcase day for performing arts for children and youths. Scenkonstdag 2018 takes place at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress in Uppsala, Wednesday October 24 from 10.00 to 15.00.
This day is for teachers/pedagogues, cultural administrators, skapande skola-organizers or anyone with an organization working with or for children and youths. During the day, the B-sal at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress will be filled with dance, music and theatre productions. There will be shorter excerpts from performances for children and youths, suitable for both public performances, at schools and during holidays.
Spinn’s artistic director Veera Suvalo Grimberg will present our latest performance Skirtpower at 14.00.
About the performance
Skirtpower is about the skirt as an ambiguous symbol of our society’s view of 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 skirts, 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. There were three professional dancers who treated us to an amazing performance, plain and simple.” – Karin Noomi Karlsson, Scenkonstguiden
This is a unique opportunity to meet other organizers working with children and youths as well as the artists presenting the performances. The day is organized by the children and youth network Kulturkraft through Kulturenheten and Musik i Uppland. So please mark October 24 in your calendars. The whole day is free of charge.
