BREAST IN PEACE BY M.P.A.C.
Breasts, beloved blend of fat, connective tissue and glands! As clowns, in the tension between cringe and virtuosity, M.P.A.C. explores breasts. What does breasts say about the human condition? Who can show what, where, how?
M.P.A.C. plays with perceptions of breasts to surprise, remove shame, arouse laughter and broaden the view on breasts both in the public and the personal intimate. Through clown, dance and circus M.P.A.C. builds a space of humor and vulnerability, rapture and resistance, tricks and reflection.
Who can show the nipples on the beach? In social media? Elevated on stage in the spotlight? Breasts are too big, too small, too saggy, too sexy, too heavy, too flat, too muscular. Are you breastfeeding here?! Breasts are hidden, missing and mourned. Breasts are a goldmine for four clowns with a punk circus attitude!

REST IN BY KAROLINA WOJTOWICZ
Rest In is an exploration of human existence in a crisis and the transformation and initiation that happens after a crisis. The place where we need to let go of what we cannot control, where the old needs to die and we are forced to accept the new. Becoming left with empty hands in the unknown space where the new can now be born. Karolina (dancer) and Liv (sound artist) explore together the sound and movement of that space between Agony and Acceptance. How does the body and mind move in space between agony and acceptance? What physical form does it take and what soundscape does it shape? With the collaboration of a performance artist and a musician they take the audience on a slow-paced journey from suffering to transformational initiation. Using true fictionalised biography material, electrical cables, belts, butoh dance, and ongoing repetitions of rituals with experimental and monotonic sounds.
Is a duo with Ester Thunander and Maja Li Härdelin, together they make contemporary arrangements out of Swedish folk songs. In musical archives they search for songs that still resonates in their melodic and poetic content through layers of time and oral tradition.

🖤 What is ballroom? 🖤
The underground ballroom scene has it roots as far back as to the 1920 in Harlem, New York, and was created by the Black and Latin Trans women and Drags, as a new safe space due to racism they faced within the white pageant scene.
It evolved into many new categories and became not only a space for trans women of color to enjoy the safeties of community but of all queer people of color to create and express what was not allowed at the time to express in the public.
While the community is not as segregated as it used to be, we remind you that the space was created and are ruled by people of color, and we remind you that the underground ballroom scene will not accept any types of racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, body shaming or any types of discrimination.
Ballroom welcomes everyone and respects everyone, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, body, sex or status. Ballroom is a place of love, unity, creativity and mutual respect.
If you are not a person of color and/or person of queer experience, we would like to reinstate that you are a guest within the ballroom community and should follow rules as everyone else. Please be mindful of the space you take as a guest, and you will be welcomed with open arms.
