SAFAR Moving with dreams, wastelands and our utopian realities
Safar* is a series of performances in public space. These performances are talks between activists, thinkers, witches and artists about anarchy, strategy, possible utopian realities and the spaces our bodies inhabit. Dreams practiced. In wastelands and gardens of exiles. Outside or parallel or beyond the patriarchal, capitalist, heterosexist, colonial, hegemonic order there are realities of sisterhood, love, collaboration, care, hope and community. Sharing influence and not taking power. In solidarity. In Safar the duo aghili/karlsson invites sisters they admire. They ask them to share parts of their lives and their visions in a travelling talk, moving from the center of Stockholm to the duo’s studio in the rural areas on the edge of the city. A participatory travel where others can join in moving, talking and sharing a meal.
*farsi for journey.
