“Queering has become an indispensable strategy in a complex world in which norms and powers form more intricate structures than ever before.”
In the article published in Belgian Etcetera magazine, Elke Huybrechts regards what happened on theater stages in 2017 through a queer theoretical lens, discussing Eisa Jocson’s Princess, Ligia Lewis’ Minor matter and Sonja Jokiniemi’s Blab.
“Blab is unpredictable – at one moment, sweet and soft, and in the next, hard and aggressive. Blab is a best of compilation of Freud.”
Come and join us for the Austrian premiere of Blab in Tanzquartier Vienna on 1 and 2 February 2019!
Sonja Jokiniemi’s new choreography Creeping Thistle is a performance project initiated by two Finnish dance artists, Inka-Leea Hakkarainen and Ville Nylén. The work is a dystopian picnic where painting, bodies and materials immerse into each other. Liquid and slime blur forms and identities and smudge binaries.
Creeping Thistle premieres in Sotku Theatre, Kuopio (FI) on 7 and 8 December 2018 and continues to Generaattori, Kajaani (FI) on 18 and 19 January 2019.
The performance is co-produced by Regional Dance Centre of Eastern Finland and Routa Company.
