Nearly a year ago Kunsthall Oslo presented a three-day programme of performances, concerts and screenings around the city of Oslo. This year, also in September, Soft City will reappear in Malmö, in a different form, as an extension or supplement to Kunsthall Oslo’s aim to present contemporary artists, that inhabit or subvert established genres of performance, like opera, musicals and TV-drama. In Malmö all events will be at the same venue, IAC, creating a more compact programme. All events are free.
Opening Friday 4 September at 5-10 pm
7-7.30 pm. Performance by Leif Holmstrand, Whore (Cities that are not Cities).
8.30-9.30 pm. Concert with Guro Moe, Håvard Skaset & Greg Pope.
Programme Friday 11 September at 5-10 pm
7-8 pm. Performance by Jennifer Walshe, Volunteer chorus.
8.30-9.15 pm. Performance by Sandra Mujinga, When I Stopped to Playing Hard to Get.
9.30 pm. Performance/Concert by Ignas Krunglevicius, The Gradients.
During 4-20 September the exhibition and installations open Wednesday to Sunday at 1-5 pm
