Performing Arts Festival

The focus in the seventh edition of the Transistor Festival is on the processes, trying out new formats and ways of working. An exploratory work is underway by artists in various rehearsal spaces that will be shown in later editions of the festival. Two works will be presented: ‘the cartographer’ by Liv Kaastrup Vesterskov (DK) and Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir (IS) and the work-in-progress sound installation ‘Of mist and clouds’ by Rune Søchting (DK). More presentations may be added later.

4 & 5 April 2019, at 19.30
‘The cartographer’, 45 min.
Liv Kaastrup Vesterskov, Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir

A woman sits by a window and constructs a new cartography of the world. A cartography of touch, rupture and reaching. ‘The cartographer’ is a brand-new work, developed at IAC. Through a laboratory like approach,
where the initial spark came from a field recording trip to the south coast of Sweden, Liv and Halla Steinunn have created a space where music and theatre collide in a work about micro worlds, sensing and cartography.

In the Cities
Nicola Pianzola, Anna Dora Dorno, Alberto Novello Jestern

Inspired by Calvino, ‘In the cities’ is an interdisciplinary experimental research and production project that aims to create the contemporary theatre production ‘The Global City’, a performance with a modulate structure able to be composed in a different sequence and to involve international artists, according to the different spaces and contexts hosting the residency phases.

Its original dramaturgy is composed by numbered memories collected in the several metropolises where the company has developed their projects. A fragmented memory characterizes our globalized era: from insuperable borders to forced disappearances, from the Korean diplomatic crisis to the Indian slums.

13 April, at 20.00: Performance – work in progress, Red Room

IN THIS NOW is in the beginning of its becoming, and it needs you. After two months of studio-based research, you're invited to a choreographed get together stretching over two days, a warm up to elsewhere with possibilities of lingering and dwelling in post-modes and an experimental platform where things can happen in both non-verbal and verbal areas.

IN THIS NOW is Sanna Blennow’s exam project in the Critical & Pedagogical Studies program at Malmö Art Academy.

Blue Planet Sounds

Malthe Møhr Johnsen

“Like droppings on the forest floor, these traces of the animal in literature suggest a number of possible tracks, histories, plots, and scenarios that both blur and reaffirm the double structure that at once binds human to non-human and keeps them categorically separate from each other.”
Considering the quote from Mario Ortiz Robles’ Literature and Animal Studies, one may suggest that even though the idea of animals and nature are a naturally inaccurate man-made interpretation based on imagination, we might have to relate to nature through this double structure in order to evoke awareness of the condition of nature.

The four pieces (1. Mys 2. Light 3. Dark 4. Pheno) all consist of material taken from a screen recording of the episode Coral Reefs from the largely successful show Blue Planet II. Each of the four sound pieces are experienced through specific visuals.

Patient 31104

Johanna Wagner

"Patient 31104" is an interactive work in which the viewer gets into the role of a patient in a 30-minute performance. The viewer is taken one by one to a hospital-like room where several doctors and nurses enter the room. With help of elements of everyday realism interspersed with absurdity and surrealism, the performance takes unexpected turns where no one and nothing is as it seems.

Patient 31104 is Johanna Wagner's thesis in Conceptual Performing Arts at Malmö Theatre Academy.

The following times are valid for both days (Each individual time is 30 minutes):
15.00-15.30 / 15.45-16.15 / 16.30-17.00 / 17.15-17.45 / 18.00-18.30 / 18.45-19.15

Registration: Send an e-mail to and let us know which time period you prefer.

SOUND SPACES was born with the aim to provide the city of Malmö with new music, opening up the perspective towards the most cutting-edge international sound-based practice.
