Dark Emotions
Zwoisy Mears-Clarke, Assi Pakkanen
3 December 2018 - 8 January 2019
Within the frame of ‘Dark Emotions’, Zwoisy will be finding a graspable translation of the emotions shame, anger, disgust, and love, while looking at them as the residue of the emotional labor related to (doing, ignoring, or experiencing) discriminatory events. The works of writers whose roots hail from black feminist theory will be a way to define and contextualize these emotions as possibilities for community and empowerment.

‘Barntimmen’ is an interactive VR project where the viewer gets to feel what it’s like to be in the shoes of a 6-year old on its first day in kindergarten. Through smells, taste and touch sensations throughout the piece, the experience for the viewer will be on a tactile level, where all five senses get activated.

Constructed Weather (part2)
Jonna Hägg
4 November 2018 - 31 October 2019
The project revolves around the weather, the force of nature and the soundscapes. The sound tracks will be based on field recordings made in different locations, mostly from Iceland and Gotland. In these sounds the power of nature is in a kind of imbalance: the sounds are threatening, vibrating, and alarming; at the same time, they capture nature’s great reserves of power.
Leif JF Calloiscott
Francis Patrick Brady, John B McKenna, Leif J.F. Callioscott
3 November 2018 - 1 March 2019
A presentation of original recordings and a reenactment of the little-known Swedish child psychologist Leif J. F. Callioscott. He was an experimental practice based academic whose theory of ‘Audible Transitional Objects’ places play and fantasy as crucial cornerstones in child development. At the same time emphasizes he that the fantastical, magical or “unreal” sonic elements that we are exposed to whilst young (disembodied voice, unidentifiable sounds, nonsense language) help us create a picture of reality as its polar opposite.
WE (working title)
Janne Schäfer, Kristine Agergaard
26 November 2018 - 31 December 2019
The visual artist duo J&K has been invited by IAC and Inkonst to develop their first piece for stage. The work is positioned on the threshold between fine and performing arts and will both be a performative installation and a visual play. J&K will experiment with combining and juxtaposing fragments, ritual elements and immersive participation as well as staged abstract material installations into a durational multimedia piece.
Corpus & Punishment
John Hanse, Henrik Bromander, Sofia Findahl, Jonas Åkesson, Jasser Hetait, Sofia Snahr
5 November 2018 - 20 December 2018
Is there any learning in oppression? The performance Corpus & Punishment examines the mechanics of state violence. It is a pedagogical arrangement where the performers alongside with the audience reenact a chain of possible situations. These situations create a dystopian and yet fully possible idea of a future where a democratic elected party uses the state apparatus to pursue and neutralize its dissidents.

The project “Maintenance” investigates how certain images and objects shape and construct our idea of reality, authenticity and space, by examining souvenirs, toys, architectural floor plans, impulse responses, foley sound and programming languages. It consists of different animated scenes, populated by animated 3D-scans of souvenirs and cleaning supplies.
Sanna Blennow, Rebecka Holmström
4 September 2018 - 22 December 2018
“Sound Matter/Waterways” is a live performed sound piece, exploring the physical and visual aspects of sound through the matter of water. Sanna Blennow and Rebecka Holmström are a choreographer/dancer and an artist/stage designer, working with sound as the connective tissue between them. Through the sounding matter of water, the artists are searching for possible narratives, trajectories, patterns, asking themselves about the relationship between body and sound.

1 August 2015 - 31 August 2021
Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir has been the artistic director of Nordic Affect since its inception in 2005. Believing that the exciting things happen "in the connection" Halla Steinunn’s work with the ensemble has been a tour de force when it comes to collaborative relationships with composers, visual artists, and producers. Furthermore she’s brought the spotlight to women’s role in music history, leading to projects such as HÚN/SHE which was broadcast by the European Broadcasting Service in 2015.

With degrees from The Royal Danish Academy of Music and Indiana University School of Music, Halla Steinunn now holds a PhD position in artistic research at Lund University, in a time where the divide between creator and performer is being questioned in theoretical writings and in practice.
