The absence becoming present

Where: Dansens Hus, Lilla scen, Barnhusgatan 14, Stockholm When: March 31, April 1, 19.00-20.30

Carina Reich presents part of her ongoing PhD-project. The absent becoming present – the conducting and realization of ideas within collaborative processes.

The performative part of the seminar at Dansens hus is staged as a collaborative dialogue, by the different voices from the collaborative process. These voices comes partly from Reich’s own experiences of collaborative productions, partly from voices and comments from the working process and performance of Just my imagination I, which were presented at Stockholm University of the Arts, October 2014, and from conversations with collegues about staging and performing the research process.

The opponent for the seminar will be Rasmus Ölme and their discussion will take place at Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, Valhallavägen 189, T-house, room T2 on 13th of April at 15.00-16.30

A collaboration between Stockholm Uniarts and Tensta konsthall, March 2–6 at Tensta konsthall, Stockholm.

open call for participants

The workshop collective-conversations is open to everyone and free of charge. 12 participants will be picked. The workshop will be in English.

collective-conversations is the name of Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum’s series of collaborative works wherein people gather to explore ways of voicing their thoughts in concert. Through dialogue, translation, quotation and writing, the group will compose a polyphonic script for a performance. This is a unique opportunity to work with one of the most distinguished artists working today in the tradition of Brazilian conceptualism. The workshop mixes performance, language, social sculpture, poetry, and sound art in a highly participatory environment exploring Basbaum’s notion of “bioconceptualism”. collective-conversations’ workshops has been taking place in Brazil, Canada, Austria, and the UK.

For the collective-conversations at Tensta Konsthall, participants will attend 4 sessions of 3 hours each (Monday to Thursday 9.30-12.30) and perform the results of the workshop in a public presentation on Friday, 6 March at 12.00 (noon).

Questions? Contact André Lepecki at Stockholm Uniarts.

About Ricardo Basbaum

Since the early 1990s, Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum has incited artistic encounters by inviting people to engage with and respond to systems of symbols and rules embedded in objects, scripts, diagrams, maps and games. In his projects, Basbaum quotes artistic and graphic communication tactics that are both vernacular and abstract, thereby easy to learn, interpret and memorize. Through interaction with these fluid sets of visual and linguistic terms for the production of an artwork, Basbaum seeks to collectively consider the material, social and spatial membrane between artist, contemporary art system, art object and participant.

The workshop is organized by Stockholm University of the Arts – DOCH School of Dance and Circus, University College of Opera and Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Two exhibitions and a seminar.

  • Exhibition at Galleri Tegen 2, 24/1 – 25/2
  • Seminar at Kristallsalen at Linnegatan 87, 31/1 – 7/2

This exhibition as well as Claesson’s PhD project emmanates from the idea of the research efforts to transform Strindberg’s drama Spöksonaten to an animated fable.

The film The Milkmaid is a transformation of a choreography to a film sequence. Virpi Pahkinen created the choreography for Ingmar Bergman’s staging of Spöksonaten at Dramaten in Stockholm. The Milkmaid is a 1′ 20” film danced by Virpi Phkinen.

The defence is taking place on Wednesday February 4, 10.00-12.00 as an open discussion with prof. Gunnar Wille (Den Danske Filmskole) and Dr. Sten Sandell, musician and composer.

card2 – circus on the edge

Tags: ,

Call for presentations

Within the conference series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, the Circus Department at the School of Dance and Circus, part of Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts), Sweden, invites you to send proposals for the second conference of Circus Arts Research and Development.

CARD2– Circus Arts Research Development – Circus on the Edge

A conference with lectures, workshops, performances, films and interventions in Stockholm, Sweden, December 9th to 11th 2015


The purpose of the conference is to create a meeting place for international researchers to introduce and share their research, to discuss, demonstrate and provoke, to agree and find collaborators, critical allies and opponents. Furthermore, to illuminate how circus practice has developed and how the field of artistic research differs from research for production.


The first CARD was launched by the University of Dance and Circus as a part of the work to demystify artistic research in circus. Since then the first artistic PhD in circus has been awarded, another is underway, post-doctoral research has commenced and ongoing artistic research is producing new knowledge and opening up new critical vistas for the form. In tandem to this development, the will to reassess, research and develop circus practice in the professional sector has grown. There is a recognized need to exchange ideas within the field of circus in order to promote the research basis for circus.

The conference will be held in English. Up to date information will be posted here.
