During Almedalen Week 2018.
In this interactive performance, the audience was invited to join a reenactment of queer desire in some of Bergman’s films. At the same time, we followed a historic development, starting in 1944 when homosexuality was decriminalized while simultaneously being classified as a mental disorder; through the years when it was culturally censured; to 1979, when the stigma was finally expunged. Through Cinemaoke, an audience is given the chance to step right into the space where the film sequences are taking place. It then becomes a playful and pleasurable way of embodying the experiences and emotions that appear on the screen. Through film sequences that open doors to imitation and interpretation.
A Cinemaoke provides an audience a new and inclusive manner of experiencing film. Through film sequences, the history of sexual politics in Sweden is illuminated from a queer perspective. A performance sparks insights into just what is permissible and possible—in society, as well as on film—for each era.
Step right into a film sequence through the wonders of Cinemaoke! During Almedalen Week in the election year 2018, and in connection with the Bergman Centennial, we welcomed visitors to join a unique reenactment of queer desire in some of Bergman’s films. Films which in their historical perspective give us a perspective on history.
