On March 21, the conditions of literature, film and dance are interwoven on Oceanens stage. Under the theme Physical Practice as Resistance, three different physical artists are invited by Sandy Harry Ceesay to talk about transgressive movement practices and the body's potential for resistance, self-expression and community. The evening includes everything from workshops in movement and writing, to short film screenings and readings.


Sandy Harry Ceesay is a dancer and performing artist. He is a graduate of the Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) and a member of the writing collective Qalam. In 2022 he made his debut as a writer with The Exile of Love, published by Albert Bonniers.

Mona Namér is a dancer and choreographer from Gothenburg, based in Stockholm. She trained at Broadway Dance Center in New York with a focus on Hip Hop and Modern Dance, and has since traveled and worked between Paris, New York, London and Johannesburg.

Lizette Romero Niknami is a poet, writer and writing teacher. In 2019 she made her debut with De försvunna (The Disappeared) published by Albert Bonniers. She has previously been active in the music and text collective Kons(t)pirationen.


The Queer Gaze is organized with support from Kulturrådet, Göteborgs stad, Ideell Kulturallians, Svenska Akademien and in collaboration with ABF-Göteborg.

Talks, readings and workshop will be in Swedish. The short film does not contain verbal dialogue.
