SATANS DEMOKRATI

SUMMARY

Starting with a phone call, referencing to Sleep No More in New York, which luckily had visited, Py Huss-Wallin and Jimmy Meurling asked if we would be interested to participate in this project that were to be groundbreaking in Stockholm with its immersive format of theatre. Entering an abandoned building, having 3500 m² to create arts at, we came in as Set-designer but quickly transformed into Curator and co-created probably one of Swedens so far most including and successful immersive project. Satans democracy turned into a 4 year everchanging creative experiance, resulting in three different plays (Satans triologi) and a platform for artists and creatives (LVL4).

CHALLANGE

Coming into a huge house with a passionate crazy project, where the sky's the limit, and the budget way too small it's a challenge from start. Being a small art-collective setting out to to do innovative and “new” art and trying to get funding from the state and cultural administrations. The gentrification process. We were fully aware of our role in the bigger picture and plans for the area by The Real Estate. Being part of affecting the bigger plans and development of an area as a non-commericial part in an ”experience economy”.

INSIGHTS

Curation based on mapping out participants of the community's “Needs”, “Dreams” and “Preconditions” is key for participatory culture. By mapping these passionate synergies will evolve and become the foundation of the curation towards the common goal. By doing what we did and constantly reaching back to no-sayers and closed doors, finally, as progress were made, this format gained recognition for its great Art, and also, for its participatory culture, community building and facilitator of meetings. Planning is key. Leaving blank spots for what is to come as the unknown, is ALSO key.
