Room for Performance / Shift

Time Friday 7 September, 2018 at 17:00 - 21:00
Place Bildmuseet

During three intense September days, Bildmuseet and Norrlandsoperan will offer a rich variety of performances by Swedish and International artists. Some are durational acts, performed in parallel at different sites in the buildings, others are performances that you experience from beginning to end. It's time to make Room for Performance! Follow walks, challenge your perception of the performing body, attend the creative workshop or the critique workshop. The theme this year is SHIFT, as in transformation of bodies, questions of life and death, positions between dream and reality.

The performance weekend is the second in a sequel of the successful collaboration in 2015 between Bildmuseet and Vita Kuben/ Norrlandsoperan, and this year Norrlandsoperan's dance department is also partaking. Free admission.
