On November 6 we’re heading to Vara Konserthus to present the performance Skirtpower, on this occasion also audio described! We’re super excited to come to Vara to present this performance and also to be able to offer audio description.
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
“I want to talk about how the skirt choreographs our bodies, but also about our gaze on those who wear it. About the power it holds to take place, limit, expose and hide. And the desire to choreograph the skirt.” – Carl Olof Berg, choreographer
On stage we see dancers Emilia Wärff, Izabell Makiela and Aristide Rontini and musician and composer Lisen Rylander Löve who’s both written and plays the music live during the performance. Skirtpower premiered at Vitlycke – Centre for Performing Arts on April 28 2018.
The performance will be followed by an audience talk with Spinn’s artistic director Veera Suvalo Grimberg.
