FEM(INISTS) GET INTO TROUBLE - Enfleshed Confrontations and Noisy Fractions
with Malin Arnell (Berlin), Liz Rosenfeldt (Berlin) and Dynasty Handbag (New York)
Five Get Into Trouble is an evening about acting out, about memberships and exclusions, and about failing to be legitimate as a politically chosen project. Enduring in spaces of darkness and non-belonging, rejecting the limited offer to belong within the parameters of legitimacy, Five Get Into Trouble negotiates the cluttering spaces in-between intimacy and power.
Five Get Into Trouble is an evening that emanates from all the dirty villains and ill-mannered baddies that inhabit the Famous Five series, often described as "vicious, filthy and queer". With "dwarf-looking fellows", "drab women looking the picture of misery”, "awful tempers" and uncountable confrontations, the Five Get Into Trouble book is one that calls for a lot of action.
Five Get Into Trouble is an evening that indulges in all these outlaws, in all that is unrestrained, in politically activated bodies, and in orchestrating border crossings. Five Get Into Trouble wants to explore action and the actions of taking back what has been stolen, the making of noise and the creating of fractions; on a voyage for infinite radicalizations of our imaginations.
The Famous Feminist is an art event in three parts, presenting a performance and video series during three Saturday evenings, bringing together a total of 11 Swedish and international artists, many of them showing for the first time ever in Sweden.
The Famous Fem(inists) evolves around a teenage novel series from the 1940’s called “The Famous Five” [“Fem-böckerna”].
Each evening runs between 8pm to midnight. Besides performances and video works there will be a bar and DJs. Limited capacity and RSVP is required. Please email full names to firstname.lastname@example.org.
