Om det som känns mest omöjligt att förändra i ditt liv plötsligt kunde förändras, vem skulle du då vara?. Blaue Frau och Teraz Poliz inbjuder till en kväll fylls av feministisk utopi. Utopi betyder ingen plats, men vi väljer att tro att platsen finns. Eller kanske är vägen mot utopi själva utopin.

Att dansa tills det blir morgon utan att bli sexualiserad. Att välja att tro på sina egna val. Att inte låta sammanhangen definiera dej, att det är du som definierar sammanhangen. Att bli älskad. Att vara Daenerys från Game of Thrones. Att älska. Att någon rör vis dej. Att vara i nuet. Diversitet. Att ha sex.

Välkommen till en kväll där gränsen mellan aktör och åskådare, regissör och skådespelare, fantasi och verklighet förskjuts. Välkommen till en kväll där vi, på riktigt, väljer att tro att förändring är möjlig.

Teraz Poliz är den enda feministiska gruppen i Polen. Gruppen har vunnit talrika priser runt om i Polen för sin föreställning “liminal. I am the dream I must not dream”. Deras föreställning “Psychosis” gjordes i Amnesty Internationals regi och föreställningen “A dress with a hole” gjordes i samarbete med The Centre of Women Rights.

Welcome to our utopia – international, multilingual, a futurist vision of an ideal world, where all the problems have already been solved, there is no unequality, no violence no fear, everything is possible and dreams are just plans for the future..

Is utopia a place, a time or a process? Is change possible? If something unavailable suddenly turned out available – who would we become?
Our performance, as well as the working process, mixes languages (Polish, Swedish, English) and traditions. It is like a children’s game, where rules can be changed every now and then, because the only limit is unlimited imagination.

The title “Whenever there are people to dance, until than we´re gonna” is actually untranslatable to Polish or to Swedish, because it’s not even understandable in English, since it consists of many different mistakes. Such a title should not exist – exactly like utopia probably doesn’t exist. However – we are trying to find it, name it, reach for it – and these efforts are much more important than mistakes made on the way. In the ideal world anyone can safely make mistakes.

We have gotten used to the thought that a society, a team, a working group has to be organized with power structures. We are used to the thought that without structures there is no work, no decisions – or else everything becomes chaos.
And what if there is another way?
Sometimes all you have to do is just keep thinking for 24h that the impossible is possible.

Teraz Poliz is the sole feministic Theatre group in Poland. The group has co-operataed with Amnest International with their performance “Psychosis” and their performance “A dress with a hole” was made the patronage of the centre of women rights.  The group has wow several awards all over Poland with their piece “Liminal. I am the dream I must not dream”.
