ABOUT

ABOUT

My Wild Flag is an international dance and performance festival in Stockholm. Consisting of local and international acts and scenarios that propose contemporary choreographic and artistic work. Bringing communities together and joining in social choreographies as well as works devoted for the stage. 

 

Through the years the festival have compiled, matched and forced a mix of institutions, freelance artists and organisations, the list continuously grows. As one know, there is always so much more than what meets the surface: We are disturbed, concerned and engaged with our locality, a context we are part of building together as well as inviting international actis into. 

 

MWF2023 is made possible by generous support from The Swedish Arts Council

This year we are co-producing the festival together Dansens Hus and further more collaborating with Stockholm University of the Arts and Hallen in Farsta.
