WHAT?

WE SHOULD ALL BE DREAMING is a concept by Sonya Lindfors & Maryan Abdulkarim that focuses on the radical potential of dreaming as a restorative and subversive practice. Situating itself somewhere between a collective think tank, choreographed gathering, a performance and a lecture the project gently invites the participants to spend time, listen and dream together. 

WHEN?

The project will take place at the Museum of Impossible Forms in two iterations:

– Thursday 10.11.2022, from 18:00 – 20:00 (workshop – format, BIPOC only)

– Friday 11.11, from 18:00 – 20:30 (soft gathering with food)

REGISTRATION?

ABOUT?

WSABD comes with a straightforward suggestion: we should all be dreaming radical utopian dreams of common futures. WSABD attempts a strategic deviation – it does not only fight against, react to or reveal the grim realities of the surrounding world but instead works as a platform of soft resistance by making space for communal coexistence.

WSABD is a collaboration between choreographer Sonya Lindfors and writer and activist Maryan Abdulkarim, through their common interest in radical speculative and decolonial practices.

Sonya Lindfors is a Helsinki-based choreographer and artistic director. In all her work, Lindfors pursues to shake and challenge existing power structures, penetrate the society, and empower the community.

Maryan Abdulkarim is Helsinki-based writer and public intellectual. She’s interested in themes relating to freedom and shifting the contexts in which we dream and create futures in the present.

WSABD is supported by the City of Helsinki, Taiteen Edistämiskeskus and coproduced by UrbanApa / UTT ry and the Museum of Impossible Forms.
