The social muscle club
The social muscle club, born in Berlin, is a series of open source events now hosted by various artists in different cities. Social Muscle Club uses art as a tool to practice generosity and “change our usual habits of thinking and doing to 'train the social muscle'” (http://socialmuscleclub.de/about/)
What is T.E.N.T.
Tent is a loose mobile structure made to host dreams, desires and basic necessities. Coordinated by Ivan Ekemark, tent is an open dance/art phenomena developing performative work and incoherent methodologies. First performed in Uferstudios Berlin this spring, the works and group is constantly morphing into other figurations. Tent is a way for the collaborators to bring their individual art making into a collective frame, a togetherness through diversity.

The Bitches of Bitchcraft
The legendary Bitches of Bitchcraft live in a sacred well which is the source of the Dark river. The seven Bitches united when they travelled and swam with the reverse current flowing beneath the surface. The journey has only just begun and can take up to 7 years. The Bitches can jump 10 foot waterfalls to reach their destinations. They feed on hazelnuts - the source of wisdom. They have an acute sense of smell and an unbreakable bond with each other. No Bitch ever travels without her pack.

THE ANUS DOESN’T EXIST
The anus doesn’t exist is a lecture in which Frédéric Gies examines mainstream anatomy and physiology as political fictions, which are not free from prejudices. Looking critically at the construction and perception of specific anatomical structures that can be seen as discriminated organs, he intends to open the door to alternative cartographies of the body.
Lecture: Frédéric Gies
Frédéric Gies is an artist in the field of experimental dance, based in Stockholm. He is also a senior lecturer in choreography and head of the Master Programme in Choreography at DOCH-UNIARTS. After dancing in the works of various French choreographers in the 90′s, he started to develop his own work, which focuses on the articulation between dance, choreography and politics, and more precisely on how dance and choreography can address
