Janine Rostron, aka Planningtorock, and Olof Dreijer from The Knife are curating a mini-festival in Sweden called CURIOUS. The festival will feature performances from friends and contemporaries and, given the artists involved, definitely veers towards the experimental side of things. An introduction on the festival’s website from the two curators reads:
“To start with, we simply wanted to see these artists shows! We find them really inspiring… they all have very diverse ways in their expressions and it feels like they play around with different norms and genres within each of their context and still have a lot of integrity.
When we take part in their devotion for sound and movement it feels like something that is less effected by commercial forces and standards, that is more difficult to categorize and motivated for completely different reasons.
CURIOUS takes place at Inkonst on October 6th, and features performances from Stina Nyberg, Cel and a DJ set from Planningtorock herself. It also has a really great poster, which you can see below.
