Kvinnostaden is a movable dance performance where Kompani Catapult paints the city with their dancing. Where the city statues are embodied and tell their own story. Kvinnostaden is performed outside and can be performed in any city, using a local statue as the starting point. It can be performed around one or several statues and its moves through the city. As the dancers move the audience change. Some see the entire performance, some discover it along the journey and stay until the end, while others only encounter the dancers for a brief moment.
Kvinnostaden is part of Step Extended
