MDT & Anrikningsverket present
Lustholmen was the name for Skeppsholmen at the end of the 16th century when it was used recreationally by the first Vasa-Kings. MDT and Anrikningsverket are now inviting you to recreation and pleasure for an afternoon and evening in August. Together we will experience explorational music and dance that digs deep and widely. Pack your picnic basket, head out to one of Stockholm’s most beautiful locations and take a seat on a blanket in the shade of the trees, just above the entrance to MDT.
Limited space, no pre-registration required and no entrance fee. The event will have assigned seating on blankets as well as available folding chairs. Bring your own picnic. Toilets and accessible toilets are available inside MDT ca 30 metres from the event, as well as a public toilet on Skeppsholmen ca 100 mores from the event.
presents explorational, experimental music, performances and adjacent art forms, often at events where separated artistic expressions meet a new audience on unusual stages. Anrikningsverket’s main stage for this is the now twenty-year-old Norbergfestivalen.
presents and arranges dance performances, art performances, installations, festivals, talks, and seminars in their building on Skeppsholmen since 1986. MDT creates conditions for future dance and choreography and participates in developing discourse both in Sweden and internationally. The goal is to contribute to a more vital dance scene in Stockholm to more people of different ages and backgrounds.

An avid participant on the Swedish jazz scene of the last decade, the Japanese pianist Naoko Sakata made solo debut in the spring of 2021. “Dancing Spirits”, released on Anna von Hausswolff’s Pomperipossa Records, consists of seven improvisations performed on a Steinway piano in Annedalskyrkan, Gothenburg in august 2020. The album does not provide an ordinary listening experience and is almost impossible to classify according to genre or field. Rather, it results from a genuinely experimental musical approach, where every note follows the last without any principle other than total freedom.
Mira Mutka & Lisen Ellard: “Slowing On”
Slowing On grounds itself in and expands through Mira Mutka’s and Lisen Ellard’s mutual interest in slowness.
Slowing On is generating, triggering longing and desire
Slowing On is a sloth attack, a slow surprise, slow fireworks
Slowing On is an old sun and a sensation of slowly coming back to life
Mira Mutka works within choreography and dance by initiating, performing and sharing practices, often through walking, slowness and conversations with a long-term interest in black holes, togetherness and structural matters.
Dancer and dance maker Lisen Ellard works through different notions of togetherness and femininities in relation to slowness, sleep and death.
With music by Lisa Stenberg and I.B. Sundström.
Lasse Ståle has explored sound and melody for over 30 years and debuted as a solo artist in 2020 alongside membership in The Cardigans, Brothers of End, Jaen Haven and the explorative collective and label Malmö Inre. Ståle’s alter ego Lost Johansson traverses wilderness and the pastoral, searching for endangered fauna returning to our biotope. The self-titled debut album soundtracks the cancellation of upward social mobility, touching upon themes of melancholic acid, Finnish boogie and melting permafrost.
