Festival X – dance in Uppsala

X stands for the (yet) unknown. It is a container for something existing but not yet realised. The idea for Festival X – dance in Uppsala initially came from a desire to get to know the local dance scene and let Köttinspektionen be a hub for artistic meetings and interactions with the local dance artists in focus – and to offer the audience to meet the local dance artists during a two-day celebratory event. Through an open call for Uppsala based and associated dance artists, the festival hosts eight artists/groups with great variation in regards to starting points, formats and ideas.

 The ongoing pandemic has made it necessary to change format for the festival. With late notice, the artists were asked to adapt and find new ways for their work to meet an audience. Festival X – dance in Uppsala, follows the original idea but will take place on Zoom, a digital meeting space. The festival presents film material, documentation of both  performances and choreographic processes, podcasts, an audio guide, interviews, artist presentations and audience talks; a beautiful mix of expressions, dance styles and ways of thinking with and about dance.

Between Us

audio performance guiding tour
Daniela Andrade & Tiago Ascensão
Between us is an audio performance guiding tour site-specific that will lead you through a journey between you and the others. It invites us to reflect on our choices to position ourself in relation to our surrounding and specifically in relation to a public space. The guide asks us to reflect on the following questions: where do I position myself? How much of myself is conditioned by the other? What if I am the center of the action? 
We propose you to do a path along Drottninggatan and Vaksalagatan, in Uppsala. Our journey starts in Västra Ågatan, near Nybron,  in the metal railing near the river in front of door number 12.
The audio guide has 20minutes long, but if you want you can use more time to do it.
You can choose when you want to do this experience. Although it can be done at any time of the day, we would like to suggest that you choose a time when there is still natural light and the city is fully awakened, so you can enjoy the experience more fully.  
You will need a devise for accessing the guide on soundcloud and earphones to do follow the audioguide.
