FUL & The Knife
Sparkly agit-pop theater that will make you dance – with the queerfeminist- postcolonial group FUL, and their house-band The Knife.
During Sweden’s 2014 parliamentary elections, the unique collaboration between the avant-garde electro-duo The Knife and FUL’s artists and activists toured open-air stages around the country. EUROPA EUROPA is an energetic agitpop concert filled with political satire and strong messages inspired by the identity- and genretranscending cabaret of the 1920s. It unwaveringly advocates for a supposedly utopian concept: The complete dissolution of Europe’s outer borders. To do this, FUL twists around the widely disseminated images of refugees as an economic drain on Europe, as a danger to European society or, at best, integrated »Others.« The group celebrates as heroes those people who have faced the most adverse of conditions to make it to our border, and commemorates those who have fallen on their way. An antinationalist cabaret with cake, love and exclusive live music by and with The Knife that extends this year’s MIGRATION WELCOME CENTER. On Saturday Karin Dreijer will perform an excentric DJ set toghether with Maryam Nikandish after the show in KMH.
