It’s time again – the fourth episode of The Swedish Dance History is going on and it will be out before X-mas. We are right now going ultra sonic, rushing into the last phase of editing and compiling material. This year TSDH introduces yet another exciting convergence. Not only are we looking forward to printing solely fresh previously non-printed material (what that means is obviously up to you) but we are also introducing two thematic tensions. First, concerning texts. We are as usual open to proposals from anybody who considers him- or herself a dancer, choreographer, performer, set, light, costume, disco freak or whatever you like. Curating and organizaing is obviously also to practice dance doing and making. In order to tease, tickle, irritate you an inkling this year we are especially interested in addressing notions of science fiction. Exactly, science fiction – totally outer space, rockets, zero-gravity, superhero stuff – exactly what our practice is on an everyday basis. Evidently, we are not only looking forward to you writing a new episode of “Barbarella” or composing an essay addressed to the future, in a galaxy far far away, but we also want to make science fiction into a dance, send choreography into a timetravel.
After all this is The Swedish Dance History and not some book about the past…
TSDH is a thick ass book and all contributions, as long as they are not overt self-promotion, simple advertisement or politically hazardous are always, and we mean always welcome and what we want most of all. Send us postcards:
