“The possible has been tried and failed. Now it’s time to try the impossible!” – Sun Ra

We Should All Be Dreaming focuses on the radical potential of dreams to be both healing and subversive. Finnish choreographer and director, Sonya Lindfors, has a simple suggestion: we should all dream in a fundamental, utopian way about a shared future.

In order to turn this dream into a reality, you can take part in this therapeutic session. We Should All Be Dreaming is somewhere between a choreographed gathering, a performance and a lecture. You are cordially invited to spend time together, listen together and dream together.

We Should All Be Dreaming is a collaboration between choreographer Sonya Lindfors and writer and activist Maryan Abdulkarim, who are both interested in radical utopianism and decolonization. 

In collaboration with CODA Oslo International Dance Festival and Oslo arkitekturtriennale.
Venue: Mekverk, Konows gate 63, 0196 Oslo. More info here
We Should All Be Dreaming has limited capacity and is not suited for groups.

Sonya Lindfors lives in Helsinki and creates musicals, performances, street dance and contemporary dance. She is artistic director of UrbanApa, a platform for new artistic practices. She is currently exploring the idea of ‘blackness’ and challenging the conventions of white theatre and performance. Maryan Abdulkarim is a writer and activist engaged with themes linked to our concept of freedom.
