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.
