A Walk for the Future/På väg till framtiden

In a performance work, Filip Kijowski shines a spotlight on heroes who break patterns and revitalize society.

In 1971, Vanja Södergren and her girlfriend wanted to announce their engagement in the newspaper, but the editor-in-chief refused to publish joy over homosexual love. In anger, Vanja took the initiative for Europe’s very first pride parade, right here in Örebro. The Gay Power Club was organized. Everyone has equal value, Homosex is human, the poster read. Vanja herself carried the message "Knowledge destroys prejudices".

Kijowski’s work takes inspiration from this ground-breaking demonstration. Vanja is given a central role. The queer community is invited to join. The choreography reinforces the conviction that words must be followed by action. A Walk for the Future will be performed at the OpenArt opening.
