WINTER 2021

COSMIC LATTE by Sonya Lindfors [FI]

THE SHOW

COSMIC LATTE departs from a utopian project of playing and reimagining  futures we cannot yet imagine. It is the year 3022 and we live in a world that escapes definitions and categories. Concepts don’t exist as opposites, boundaries move, dissolve and break. Afrofuturism, contemporary art, West African cosmology, Sun Ra and Bach co-exist on a stage that is porous, diverse and beige.

Sonya Lindfors (1985) is a Cameroonian – Finnish choreographer and artistic director of UrbanApa, an inter-disciplinary and counter hegemonic arts community that offers a platform for new discourses and feminist art practices. Lindfors’s recent works centralise questions around Blackness and Black body politics, representation and power structures, speculative futurities and decolonial dreaming practises.
