On May 31st, the culture festival Gränslandet (Borderlands) takes place at Göteborgs Litteraturhus. Gränslandet is a culture festival about the body’s encounter with places, identities and taboos, organized by students from Cultural Studies at the University of Gothenburg. Spinn’s dancer Emila Wärff and SpinnUnga’s director Anna Bergström has been invited to present the company and what we do.
By asking questions about society’s norms, this festival addresses mankind’s various limitations and possibilities in this world. The body becomes a focal point for how people can live their lives. We address these limitations that, in some way or another, dictates what’s ok and what’s not, and in what way these limitations affect mankind’s existence, mentally and physically. We want to open up for conversations, explore questions and stimulate reflection on the borderlands we live in.
