Francine Agbodjalou is a theatre artist and significant for all her work, whether it's by herself alone or as a part of the Stockholm-based performing arts group Kvalitetsteatern, is the intersectional approach and the clear focus on standard criticism of norms. Most recently she has finished the first part of the dance performance "Foxy Dance Dance" that focused on the norms of dance in terms of the total exclusion of certain bodies and dance expressions, such as the dance expression of the black body. Next year, week nine of 2014, (the end of February/beginning of March) Francine will put her monologue show called "Revenge" up on Turteatern, Kärrtorp in Stockholm and "Revenge" is a work of class and classifications and how we value ethnicities in a class conditional expression.
Apparently the video above, the official video for Linkoban's 'Oh Oh', taken from her debut alum "OX" out now here and directed by Ling herself, has made a lot of guys feeling uncomfortable. She updated the following onto her facebook page earlier today:
The summer club CAKE has been a strong force in the club scene in Gothenburg as they have booked acts like Brooke Candy, Cakes da Killa and Dominique Young Unique. The club was founded in 2011 by Julia Ivarsson and Cecilia Losberg with a goal to challenge and question the current norms of the hip hop culture. To be a place for rap and hip hop lovers with a focus on women and people that doesn't apply to the "common norm" of the scene, reclaiming space and creating a platform where everyone can fit in under the same flag. CAKE has now also evolved into CAKEMOB - a company Julia started together with Iki Gonzalez Magnusson from the non profit association Utopias which main focus is to make the culture scene available for everyone.
