Johanssons pelargoner och dans is the first artist in residence at Södertörn University's performing art residence. In 2021, we will be on site at Södertörn University and in Flemingsberg to deepen our work with movement-based participatory performing arts.  

In the project we will:

  • Further develop our artistic methods for how the audience can be physically involved in participant-based works, and deepen the theoretical and practical knowledge about movement-based performing arts in which the audience participates.

  • Invite students, teachers and the community to open studios where we both physically try and talk about themes related to participatory performing arts and how the embodied experience interacts with the art experience.

  • Do a work-in-progress sharing of an upcoming work.

THE CHOREOGRAPHY - Interactivity, language and integration was a three-year project with support from the General Heritage Fund 2018-2020. The purpose of the project was to create cultural experiences where the audience has the opportunity to meet beyond language barriers and to work with method development in multilingual performing arts.  

In the project we have:

  • Translated THE CHOREOGRAPHY into ten languages spoken by newly arrived children and young people, and thus created a multilingual cultural experience at the intersection of equality, norm creativity and integration.

  • Developed methods and knowledge for multilingual and accessible performing arts collected in the book Anthology for a multilingual performing arts (2020).

THE CHOREOGRAPHY
in minority languages

Everyone has the right to culture on equal terms

Johanssons pelargoner och dans created the THE CHOREOGRAPHY in 2016, which since its premiere has played around 500 performances in schools and theaters around Sweden. THE CHOREOGRAPHY is an interactive performance where the audience participants in small groups listen to instructions in each pair of headphones and together create the performance. In this project, we will translate the show into some of the official minority languages in Sweden.

In the project we will:

  • Translate THE CHOREOGRAPHY into Northern Sámi, Southern Sámi, Meänkieli, Arli Romani and Finnish.

  • Create a multicultural meeting place for people who speak different languages, where they get the opportunity to an equal exchange.

  • Contribute to increased knowledge of the performing arts' possibility to contribute to language revitalization.  

The project is led by ANNA HAGLUND, KARIN WIKLUND & ANNICA STYRKE

With the support of STOCKHOLMS STAD, THE INSTITUTE FOR LANGUAGE AND FOLKLORE  & THE SWEDISH ARTS COUNCIL
