Phantom Zone Projector
Kalle Brolin
19 August 2019 - 1 September 2019
Smuggler of refugees Amir Heidari was filmed and interviewed in a Swedish prison, while talking about a Europe without walls. The interview took place in 2007 and was recorded on a mini-DV camera. A performance piece describes how various parties (like the police, or the documentary film industry) throughout the years since then have attempted to influence different versions of the filmed material.
other ear
Kirstine Lindemann, Yiran Zhao
11 August 2019 - 22 August 2019
While making compositions in which the movement and sound of the body forms the main compositional material the project ‘other ear’ researches how the staging and the physical presence of the performer create relations to an audience. 'other ear' works with an expanded concept of classical composition while placing the physical body in the center of the works.
Constructed Weather (part2)
Jonna Hägg
4 November 2018 - 31 October 2019
The project revolves around the weather, the force of nature and its 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, alarming and capturing at the same time nature’s great reserves of power.
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.

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.
