Cleo och Broke ´N Tipsy

Thursday September 7
12.00-13.00 p.m.
Universum, at the Welcome fair

Cleo. The mother of Swedish rap. With over 10 years on the hip-hop scene, she has performed music with artists like Linda Pira, Adam Tensta, Alina Devecerski, Looptroop Rockers, Kristin Amparo, Sister Sol, Mwuana and Trainspotters.

In 2015 she won the title "Live Act of the Year" at Kingsizegalan and the year after "Årets Live" at the Manifest Gala. She was also nominated for "Golden Mic" at the P3 Gold Galan 2015.

"Nathalie Missaoui is born to be on a stage (...) I can willingly admit that these were the best 90 minutes I've seen. And perhaps the best Swedish hip hop gig I have experienced in my life so far. (Kingsize Magazine)

Svante Henryson
Concert and improvised workshop

Thursday September 14th
12:10-12:50 p.m.
The Atrium, Teacher Education Building

Svante Henryson, Cello
Jon Balke, piano
Morgan Ågren, drums

Triojazz with an unusual set. The music has the swing and improvisation of the jazz and the dynamics of chamber music, with a lurking hard rock-feeling to it.

After the concert, Svante improvises a workshop on the spot where he answers your questions. Stay around for that!

Svante Henryson grew up in Umeå, where he began his musician career as an electric and counter-bassist in rock and jazz. After the studies, including at the Musical Academy in Prague, he became the youngest bas-soloist in the Oslo Philharmonic.

Henryson is a member of the Royal Musical Academy, and artistic director of the Umeå Chamber Music Festival. In 2014 he received the P2 Jazz Cat / Musician of the year, and was awarded in 2015 with the prestigious Nordic Council Music Prize.

In collaboration with the Umeå Chamber Music Festival.

-on the comic novel Nya Norrland

Friday September 15th
12:10-12:50 p.m.

- An explosive song-and-dance drama about the female Nobel price winners in physics, chemistry and medicine

Thursday, October 12th
12:10 to 13:00 p.m.
The Atrium, Teacher Education Building

This is the story about the reality the women in science have faced over the years: obstacles and resistance, exclusion - even humiliation. We tell the story in our own way with a lot of humor, musicality and interactivity.

In Skandal we meet six of the history's female researchers who received the Nobel Prize and a couple who did not.

The show will be in Swedish.

In cooperation with Kyrkan på campus
