INFO & TICKETS:
Join us for an evening of talks, workshops and performances that will challenge what ‘normal’ bodies look like and explore personal stories of living with a spare part or altered organ.
Is access to new technologies, whether state-of-the-art 3D printed limbs or the latest health app, giving us greater control over our bodies and identities? How can our society and infrastructure be better set up to meet the needs of all bodies? And is the drive to improve and optimize our bodies always healthy?
Highlights include a performance by opera singer Victoria Oruwari, who uses her voice as a prosthesis to move through spaces, a talk by Sophie de Oliveira Barata, founder of the Alternative Limb Project and a collage making workshop with malady mag.
A collage making workshop with malady mag, where no bodies created are too far from the norm.
Don’t miss movement girl band The Yonis who will be performing a joyful ‘song’ celebrating difference and individual expression several times through the evening. Connect with your own body and join their open band practice.
The world's first Drag collective of queens and kings with Down’s syndrome explore the wonder of an extra chromosome in a boundary-pushing performance.
Opera singer Victoria Oruwari performs a sound work by artist Tabatha Andrews and composer Charlotte Harding exploring the process of listening, altered senses and otoacoustic emissions - tiny sounds our ears make in response to external noise. Following her performance, Victoria Oruwari will share how she experiences the world through sound and discuss her collaboration with artist Tabatha Andrews, whose work features in the SPARE PARTS exhibition.

Hey Stockholm, we’re coming to the mighty Club Backdoor.
Drag Syndrome är en underground Dragshowgrupp där alla drag queens- och kings har Down's Syndrome. Gruppen började med att göra shower på små klubbar och barer i London, men har efter ett nyhetsinslag på Australiensk teve fått erbjudande om att uppträda världen över och gjort stora modevisningar och modereportage ibland annat tidningen ID. Senaste showen i Norge fick fem stjärnor av fem möjliga! På sin turné under 2019 gör det ett Sverigeexklusivt uppträdande den 25 januari på Backdoor där samtliga gruppmedlemmar i Down Syndrome kommer att bjuda på en enastående färgsprakande show!
Under övriga kvällen spelas det gamla- och nya superhits från världens alla topplistor! Helt enkelt musik man vill dansa sig svettig till hela natten lång! I "The Hole" kommer det att spelas Mello/Eurovision och gamla schlagerdängor ända fram till klockan 05.00!
This is going to be a smash!
