MOPA – The Last Stand (Sky) 7 - 10 December 2023

MOPA – The Last Stand (Sky)’ is the final part of the MOPA trilogy by Pontus Pettersson. With a World premiere on December 7 at MDT in Stockholm, and further performances on December 8-10. In the performance, we revisit Pontus’s artistic practices—the water practice and the cat practice—while he returns to the classical choreographic tools of time and space. With newly written music by Spanish

composer Hara Alosno and six dancers on stage, Pontus being one of them, ’MOPA – The Last Stand (Sky)’ is a declaration of love to dance and the intelligence of our human bodies when trust and care are at the forefront of collective movements, as well as singularities being in play.

Summer of cats (2023)

Pontus’ performative practice, ’The Cat Practice’, is featured in his project ’Pancor Poetics’, currently on display at Shedhalle in Zurich. For the opening of the choreographic installation, designed as a miniature golf course using Pettersson’s signature typeface, Pancor, Pontus invited Swiss-based dance artists Aga Pedziwiatr, V Pierzynski, and Tyra Wigg to practice while guests could take a swing at the course. The exhibition also includes works by Angela Goh, Autumn Knight, Michael Portnoy, and Kris Lemsalu and is open during the weekends until the 6th of August. The second appearance of Pontus’ cat practice will happen later this week for the very first performance biennial, Vilnius Biennial of Performance Art 2023. Outside, by The Fountains of the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet, seven local artists will perform/practice together. If you are in town, please come by! The performance takes place this Friday, the 28th, at 18:30—20:30 and 21:30—23:30.

A new Delta - The Page as a Stage 28 - 29 April 2023

Delta – The Page as a Stage is a two-day exchange and coming together between the 28 - 29 April, arranged by Pontus Pettersson and Izabella Borzecka, with the intention to discuss, reflect and share how choreography is practiced and manifested in printed matter, how text and publications can be understood

as formats for choreographic inquiries, and how they can be seen as works in themselves. The event is a format to exchange practices and ideas, and try out experiments together. The event is hosted by the gallery Index in Stockholm. This is the third wave of the Delta project with the desire to enable further publications. Invited artists and choreographers are Galerie (Adriano Wilfert Jensen & Simon Asencio), Paloma Madrid, Sara Kaaman, Stina Nyberg, Tova Gerge, Oda Brekke and Litó Walkey. Find out more on Index homepage and join the facebook event here
