Revolve 2020

Revolve Performance Art Days is an annual festival that started in 2016. Each year the festival changes slightly according to the artistic ideas and the network of collaboration partners: Uppsala Art Museum, Köttinspektionen dans (dance), Uppsala Konsert & Kongress and Uppsala City Theatre.

Sadly to say we have to postpone this years edition of Revolve. We welcome everyone back next year. 


The Concept 2020 is Revolve Fiction. Revolve fiction, the fifth edition of Uppsala's performance festival, focuses on artistic practices that are based on or related to the fictional, the constructed and the mythical.

Historically Performance Art is deeply connected with the authentic. Revolve fiction aims to unpack and interlay these two significant concepts. Art as fictional "object" intervenes in the world, but is also part of it.

Fiction is fused with the concrete. In fantastic and constructed situations, Performance Art constantly brings attention to presence, the here and now and the lived body. The actual body meets the fabulating body; in a landscape of what has been and what could become.  

At the same time fictional strategies of propaganda, fake news and speculative finance intrinsically shape the world we live in.

This year's festival presents international and national artists who use fiction, with different methods and from different horizons, as a tool to critically illuminate our complex world, full of everything that exists and does not exist.
