The WorldPride Park’s performance program consists of eight acts, each one reshaping the park’s collective consciousness in its own way. Taking its starting point in the history of Folkets Park and the collective memories inherent in the space, the acts explore different norms that govern public space. The program illuminates the temporary, the embodied, and the non-linear. Curated by Emilia Thorin and Matilda Tjäder in collaboration with Folkets Park.

Abject of Desire

Inkonst
August 13
Time: 19.00-20.00
The doors open 30 minutes before the show starts.

A norm critical primal roar about lesbianism and racialization.

”ABJECTION refers to the human reaction (horror, vomit) to a threatened breakdown in meaning caused by the loss of the distinction between subject and object or between self and other”

”DESIRE is to want something strongly. A wish or craving. A large, desperate feeling or need. To express a wish; request. Sexual appetite; lust.”

Abject of Desire portrays an agency, a process which is constantly in relation to contradictions. By doing otherness, Shirley Harthey Ubilla wants to direct the voyeur’s eye, whose perception becomes the mirror of the subject. In pursuit in the self-possession of the self, the carnal desires is embodied by extensions and dislocations of that which is otherwise despised. In this piece, focus is directed at questions regarding lesbianism and race.

Meet Kitty Sparkle. She’s a drag artist. Her gender flows as easily as her many facades. She can entertain and dance for you. She can make you laugh, and maybe cry, but she will also carry you into the dark and beautiful corners of her mind where we can all find a way to fly far far from here. Escaping into the realms of our imagination and a utopian freedom, so we too can have the right to be whoever or whatever we choose.

Untitled Hand Dance – Tosh Basco (boychild) (US) 

August 19 2021
Plaskdammen, WorldPride Park
Time: 19.00-19.45
Tickets: https://billetto.se/en/e/untitled-hand-dance-tosh-basco-boychild-us-tickets-556673/
The doors open 30 minutes before the event starts.

Tosh Basco’s hand dances are notations, sifting compositions with the world’s moments enfolded. Hidden in the hands an alluvial transcription of reach and embrace. The final flickers of the body’s expression, caress and touch. Haptic grasp. Emphatic abandon, ephemeral betrayal. An atmosphere of messages.

In case of bad weather, this performance will be moved to another venue in the park. We will inform via email the same day as the performance. Keep an eye on your inbox for confirmation of new time and venue.

Sandwich – Sin Wai Kin  (CA/UK)

August 20 2021
Plaskdammen, WorldPride Park
Time: 18.00-20.00
Tickets: https://billetto.se/en/e/sandwich-sin-wai-kin-ca-uk-tickets-556674/

The doors open 15 minutes before the event starts.

Sandwich is a performance by artist Sin Wai Kin performing as their drag alter ego Victoria Sin. In the work the artist makes a cheese sandwich in a demonstrative and exasperated attitude to 1950s music.  The work references both vintage cooking shows and feminist performance work such as Martha Rosler’s semiotics of the kitchen in a tongue in cheek comment on the value of fmeininine labour and expectations that come with the performance of femininity.

In case of bad weather, this performance will be moved to another venue in the park. We will inform via email the same day as the performance. Keep an eye on your inbox for confirmation of new time and venue.

Higher

August 21 2021
Inkonst
Time: 19.00-20.00
The doors open 30 minutes before the event starts.

HIGHER is a dance performance inspired and based on the experience of clubbing and club dancing. Such form of dance, which is not easily ascribed to any category, taking the cultural role of a social dance and also at times featuring various techniques, styles and influences, is extremely explicative of what ultimately seems to be the purpose of dancing, intended as a human form of expression.

Philosopher Julia Kristeva once said: “As to be human embraced political, sexual, religious, familiar identity, we are undergoing a time of major identity crises. We need to find a language that transcends the human in order to overcome such crises an d awake a new Renaissance. This language can be dance”.

I interpret this cathartic power of dance, as its being a form of prayer and celebration of existence, and I found in the club a place for such transcending activity, which entirely matches the often used association of clubs to churches, however obscured by the most common understanding of clubbing as a mere recreational activity.

In this performance, while trying to transfer the magical essence of the club in the theatrical/representational context of the black box, and trusting in dance as the practice that compensate for the fact that we can never be each other, we attempt in becoming One.

Among My Souvenirs

August 22 2021
Barnens scen, WorldPride Park
Time: 19.00-20.30
Tickets: https://billetto.se/en/e/among-my-souvenirs-alex-margo-arden-caspar-heinemann-tickets-556224/
The doors open 30 minutes before the event starts.

Among My Souvenirs is a new play by artists Alex Margo Arden and Caspar Heinemann. Through binoculars, the work interrogates espionage, divergent recollections, judgement, disappearance, and double crossing. Beginning at the trial of the auction of many sheep, the artists use tactics of partial disclosure and recurrence to tell a tale of provenance. The anecdotal gay storytelling tradition is invoked and an insider spy fiction emerges from the whispers of acquisitions old and new. The cornucopia has disappeared under the gavel. Where is the sheep?

Meet Skånes Dansteater’s dancers outdoors in Folkets Parks in a new work by Italian choreographer Fabio Liberti. In NOOK dancing bodies become a building collective. Under the summer sky, the group creates a space for community. But this space never ceases to change. Unconsciously, they turn winding paths into elusive labyrinths and build obstacles to their coexistence. Fabio Liberti’s award-winning dance performances have been shown on international stages and festivals around Europe. He has created works for dance companies in Denmark, Germany, USA, the UK and Sweden. Fabio’s work has also been shown at the Danish art museums Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Charlottenborg Museum and the Free Center of Contemporary Art.
