Free admission, no booking required


Marcus Baldemar has a residency at Köttinspektionen for two weeks in June, to continue the work with his long term project called Love Shrine & Your Majesty, a work that attempts to understand and perform radical love and especially a generous love to the self.

The 21st of June, there will be a residency showing at Köttinspektionen, which will start up with a potluck (so bring something to eat if you’d like). During the potluck there might be more public events happening simultaneously.

Marcus Baldemar is a dancer and choreographer based in Stockholm and Brussels. He studied at Balettakademien in Umeå, Sweden, at SEAD in Salzburg, Austria and a P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, Belgium. In his work, Marcus aims to combine his love for and interest in bodies as poetics and politics, dance and popular culture.


Love Shrine & Your Majesty – Part 1

A collective healing through self-lovING  but also a lap dance of sorts

Love is a verb. Love is the choosing of trust, care, affection, respect, recognition, commitment as well as open and honest communication (bell hooks) 

 A Shrine is a “chest, coffer: case for relics”, a “case or box for keeping papers” or “a tomb of a saint”. A holy space. A space where we keep what is meaningful to us.

 Your Majesty is what we call our royalty.

“Love Shrine & Your Majesty” or “LS&YM” is the umbrella name for a series of works initiated by Marcus Baldemar. The project is an attempt to understand and perform radical love and especially a generous love to the self. Marcus and his collaborators work with dance, music and text.
