I had a former life in the hinterlands of America
working first as a journalist and then as an
economics professor. I emigrated from the US
in May 2018 to begin a new life as a citizen of
Ireland. The real reason I write poetry now is
simple. Not to be published, but just to share
thoughts, memories and feelings about the
world, and to experience both the immediate
and long-lasting joy from creating, reading
and sharing poetry -- not under deadline,
but as a lifeline. Poetry is not a job, but it is
much more than merely a hobby. Sharing
is the perfect word to use here -- it is very
meaningful to bring my work done in solitude,
and see it become part of a literary collective.
And it is equally meaningful to listen to all
of the other poems which are read in each
session. I want to learn what everyone else
is thinking and feeling. I need to hear other
voices besides my own, especially now!

Writing the Scape: Rural and Urban.
Stephen’s passion for poetry is deeply rooted
in the landscape of rural west Wales. A walk
in Gelli Aur in the Tywi valley is a restorative
and creative process. However he also finds
inspiration and stories in the built environment,
industrial, family and social history.

Body Hair

Studio | Storgatan 49
Performing arts
English | Pay what you want
What does it do to you to parade your
insecurities, to showcase them, to accentuate
them? Through this performance Muñoz takes
an aspect of herself that has been hidden
from her own eyes and others, something that
has fascinated her for a long time, something
with lots of cultural significance: hair. Muñoz
own relationship with hair has always been
influenced by the gaze of others and the
gossip that comes from having “unwanted”
hair on a female-read body.

the border between chaos and emptiness,
reality and fiction. The show embodies
Storm´s tumultuous relationship with reality.

arrangements, lyrics, and visual art it tells the

Do You Hear?

English / Pay What You Want
”Do you hear?” is a cross disciplinary
performance of live music and dance. By
sampling the background sounds of our
home (cooking in the kitchen, using the toilet,
cuddling in a blanket), we present a semiimprovised
dialogue between the dance
and the musician with various emotional
expressions. We aim to give these sounds
new interpretations - How does the body
respond to the sounds of the house? Is he
influenced by them for a pleasant dance or
accompanied by inner restlessness?

Ariadne of Crete

Teater JARMO | Ängarydsg. 10

English / Ticket, pay what you want
Ariadne of Crete is a one-woman puppet
show about love, labyrinths and lost identities.
It’s mixing the antique myth of Ariadne with
Dionysos - the god of theatre and pleasure,
Lapland with palace of Knossos, from being
in love with a bull with being an underdog. On
stage we see one puppeteer, a lot of strings
and puppets made of wool. Some great
manipulation and not so great ventriloquism,
trying to get its creator out of her corona-tumb
and the spectators to laugh and cry.

Cartwheeling into the fabric of space-time,
Navigate reshapes the universal feeling
of being an outsider. Shadow puppets,
movement and soundscape construct the
fantastic journey of a mysterious pirate
captain off the edge of the world. This show is
for people who feel like science isn’t for them
and for all of us figuring it out on our own.And
of course, the lesson is that we aren’t actually
alone. You need a crew to navigate a magical
sailing ship through outer space. So welcome
