Alexander web size

Alexander Alvina Chamberland is a Swedish-American performance artist and writer who is now residing in New York working on their masters thesis on transfeminine sisterhood. Their intense inner life monologues come out/dance out/vomit out in the form of maximalist prose with constant climactic waves both warmandcold as they merge with emotions and thought-feelings and anti-capitalist queer femme politics amongst black swans, panthers and lionesses. 100 percent vulnerable, but certainly not fragile. They will be reading from forthcoming litterary projects and purr-haps singing a song or two.

Beck Heiberg, b. 1987 in Copenhagen, is a choreographer and dancer trained in Copenhagen, Paris and New York, where he is currently living.

Beck’s most discussed themes circle around the identity search in gender. He searches the space that lies outside the boxes. He uses an experimental mix of styles to show androgynous, feminine and masculine sides in his pieces. He has worked a lot in the commercial field of music videos and concerts, but his heart lies in performance and theater. Most recently he choreographed “Boy or Girl” from the dance theater “Basic emotions” – from which he received great reviews – and dance theater “In Between”, which toured Europe summer 2013.

With his new solo performance “WhoUwantMe2B” he wants to show the strength in submission and discuss gender roles in sensuality.




Sara Parkman is a folk musician, and a lover of traditions. She adores old ladies, polskas, words, trains, old songs and the radio. She plays the violin and does it wow super mega good. She believes in the revolutionary power of kitchen tables as well as in the power of folk music to spread the word about anti-nationalism and queerfeminism. She will give you the best swedish folk music hits and mix it up with the devils roar and music that is real.
