    Feminist Futures

    Towards antiracist and intersectional stages

    Fest en Fest are collaborating with seven other European organisations and Perform Europe to look to create an alternative performance network across Europe. The organisations include – Sonya Lindfors – UTT ry (Finland), Rosendal International Theatre (Norway), RE:LOCATIONS – Digital festival by WILDTOPIA ApS (Denmark), CODA Oslo International Dance Festival(Norway), Oyoun Kultur NeuDenken gUG (Germany), LIFT Festival (UK), Independent Dance(UK), and H2DANCE/Fest en Fest (UK). The Project reflects a diverse, BIPOC, women-centered partnership innovating practices for the future. Our long-term strategic aim is to platform and promote together queer, feminist, decolonial, migrant and human-centered artist-led initiatives across Europe.

    Feminist Futures empowers and raises visibility to the works of Cameroonian-Finnish dance artist Sonya Lindfors and Somalian-Finnish artist Maryan Abdulkarim. Both artists focus on questions around Blackness and Black body politics, feminism, representation and power structures, speculative futurities and decolonial dreaming practices.
