Word Jam

jamtext

Hectic sumer with exhibition but also the start of our Nordic Culture Point funded pre-project Word Jam. We have had some great meetings in Copenhagen and Oslo and the project is slowly taking form.

In Copenhagen we are looking in to collaboration with Livsbanen an inspiring  organisation that works on a solid and fundamental level with hip hop and inclusion plus being a hub for hip hop production in Brønshøj ,Copenhagen.
In Oslo we have meet with Cafeteatret and Nordic Black Theatre in Oslo and also here are planning a collaboration.
Still have a long list of names that the wonderful people that shall be contacted. So much love from both places❤ and so many great ideas.

To get some extra inspiration we also went to SPKRBOX in Oslo a festival for urban stage art. What a festival! Words can not express the energy that those days and performances gave bot to the soul and body.

So Word Jam is kicking of and in more than one way during the autumn and we are also in the process of applying for funding in order to be able to bring everything to live.

If you want to collaborate or be part of the project, or just wants to know more, drop us a mail and lets see what we can bring about.

Beats & Words – vernissage

Bakgrundsbild-FB_BeatsOrd

 

Beats & Words at Cat Eyed People’s Playground

Where can the boarder between a work of art and the room be drawn? What happens when the room you enter becomes an instrument controlled by your movement?

Beats & Words is an interactive installation stemming from the sound universe of hip hop. As a visitor you are invited into the room to create and explore the beats that fills the space, and you are surrounded by signs with and without light presenting words taken from Swedish rap from the eighties and onwards.

The beats are produced for the installation, and are in a tempo that most people can rap, read poetry or sing to.

Cat Eyed People creates interactive works of art where the visitor is or can be a co creator. For more information http://www.facebook.com/cateyedpeoplesplayground

A seagull family is living just outside the Cat Eyed People’s Playground’s container and last weekend their babies hatched. Due to the family and their need of some ‘privacy’ (and our guests and our own ‘safety’) we have decided to have Slot Car Music closed this weekend.

If you missed the exhibition and wants to have a go at the track send us a message here on our Facebook-page or a mail to cateyedpeople@coscene.org and we will find a time to show it to you.
