First Thought Score – work in progress
28 April 2017

This is an experimental presentation initiated by Iaspis artist in residence, Ndikhumbule Ngqinambi. Together with the dance duo Elen and Emelie of Waileth & Bardon as well as musicians from Malmoe, he will spontaneously transform an “Imaginary Score” into music and body movement choreographies. The idea is to also maintain the figurative element which is prominent in the paintings by Ndikhumbule.

The Score itself is a work in progress for a long term project and it will be used for a collection of First thoughts that will connect artists from Sweden and South Africa, to work together on a bigger project involving the city of Malmo and city of Cape Town.


Distant Voices – Malmö.
5 May 2017

Concert with Francesco Dillon (Cello) and Emanuele Torquati (Piano)

The original concept “Distant Voices”, designed by the Italian duo Francesco Dillon (cello) and Emanuele Torquati (piano), is a time trip, a journey through our collective cultural memory. In this new version of the project, called “Distant Voices: Malmö”, the composers A. Perini and J. Sersam have worked out, together with the musicians, a new version especially designed for Malmö. This version is questioning cultural identity with special focus on the differences between Italy and Sweden. The concert becomes a journey not only through time, but also through space, both geographical and mental. From this particular angle we want to open up a new dimension in the concert concept and start a possible development, resulting in possible corresponding project versions at other latitudes.

Lågan vs Nålsögat
Lågan vs Nålsögat takes as its point of departure two films: Lågan and Nålsögat
May 1st - September 17th
Lågan vs Nålsögat takes as its point of departure two films: Lågan from 1973 by Sandell Film AB, and Nålsögat from 1975 by Jan Troell. The two films ​ depict everyday life at the ship building company Kockums in Malmö from fundamentally different angels, and can be said to highlight two conflicting perspectives in how to reach social justice and better living conditions for people present in the political debate in Sweden and many other countries during the 20th century: one claiming that social progress has to be pursued within the realm of work, and the other that the realm of production will never make any real progress toward humanitarian emancipation possible.
