SPECIAL BOUFFON WORKSHOP WITH MARIA OLLER FROM EDINBURGH

When: 16-20 April at 17-20
Place: DOCH studios Brinellvägen 58, Stockholm
Enrol at: ingela.hemming@manegen.org

This will be a super Bouffon workshop, free for Manegen members! Maria Oller is trained in London, Paris and Helsinki, specialising in European theatre, clowning and classical studies using the European theatre tradition of physical theatre.

The Bouffons are the outcasts of society, those who don’t fit in but who say what they think without fear. The Bouffons come from a middle age tradition where those not fitting in were seen as children of the devil. The children of God, the perfect ones, decided that the children of the devil should be sent away from the villages and be left to their own devices outside the law. These outcasts became jesters making fun of the perfect ones. They had nothing to lose.
In the Bouffon workshop we learn to be a big person enjoying the strength of being small and worthless but with the gift of blasphemy. The Bouffon is the opposite of the clown. The clown loves the audience while the bouffon has the tactics that says the truth to the audience.

The Board of Manegen on the report from the Swedish Arts Council + reminder about Members’ meeting on 6/2-18

All present and future members of Manegen are welcome to an important Members’meeting on February 6th at 6 pm at Stora Nygatan 33 in Gamla stan.

Then the survey on contemporary circus made by The Swedish Arts Council which was presented on November 30th will be discussed – and the ways forward! Your voice is important – so enroll at info@manegen.org – it is possible to become a member at the meeting (200 SEK a year)!

The Board of Manegens has written a letter with background information and the plans for the future: 

Last Tuesday January 16th Manegen had its first Board meeting this year. Among all the issues discussed, one point on the agenda was the report by the Swedish Arts Council concerning professional contemporary circus. We have decided upon two perspectives for our work onwards. One is about using the report as constructively as we can and get as much as possible out from it that can benefit our artistic field. We think that it is good that the report has been done, we have worked hard for it to be written, and we think that it describes many of the things lacking for our art form to develop and which the members of Manegen have raised since the founding of Manegen in 2008 – and even way before that. The other perspective concerns the discussions and stories having been put forward in connection with the publishing of the report by the Swedish Arts Council. Our view is that our mission is to listen to as many voices as we can from our art form in general and from the members of Manegen in particular, to collect opinions and find different ways of gathering information that can be used moving forward. This will take time and demand clever solutions, we know that since we did the beginning of a mapping back in 2014-2015.

In this letter you find a short overview of headlines from the report by the Swedish Arts Council, our plan right now and the background explaining why the report was written.

We hope to see you at the Members’ meeting on February 6th. It will also be broadcasted live for those of you who cannot be there. Please get in contact with us before the meeting if you have questions or issues to raise: styrelse@manegen.org

Many greetings,
The Board of Manegen (Linda Beijer, Klara Mossberg, Anna Ljungqvist, Kiki Muukkonen, Walter Ferrero, Virginia Librado Gallego, Pernilla Appelqvist, Camilla Rud, Eva Jansson, Olivia Hultman, Linus Ahlbin, Karin Melin).
