This presentation features a staging of excerpts from Astrid von Rosen’s video work from 1994-96 when she was employed as a classical and contemporary dancer at the Gothenburg Opera, a major cultural institution in the Swedish city of Gothenburg. Experimenting with DIY punk inspired techniques and using a Video Home System (VHS) camera Astrid went backstage to film her colleagues acting out their frustration with being caught up in a system of brutal, sexualized means of expression. Merging a devastating feeling of belonging to a dying art form with a feminist urge to represent what it was like in the early 1990s economic meltdown to try to survive as a dancer, mother, wife and mistress she also created her own, rather bloody version of The Dying Swan, after a canonical work by Mikhail Fokine from 1905. Not deposited in any authorized archive, the VHS-materials have been rescued – transferred to a digital format – by filmmaker Linda Sternö and edited to resonate with Astrid’s live talk. Astrid von Rosen is a former classical and contemporary dancer educated at the Royal Swedish Ballet School. Today she is a senior lecturer in Art History and Visual Studies at the University of Gothenburg and a research coordinator for the Embracing the Archives cluster at the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies. Her research interests include historiographical and participatory approaches to independent dance community archives and archiving, the power of images in relation to social change and transformation, and border crossing methodological development. Recent publications include Dream-Playing across Borders (Makadam 2016), and “ ‘Dream no Small Dreams!’ Impossible archival imaginaries in dance community archiving in a digital age” in Rethinking Dance History, (second edition, Routledge July 2017). Linda Sternö has worked as a lecturer at Valand Academy since 2012. She holds a BA in film directing from Gothenburg University and an MA Visual Culture and Learning with a specialisation in Visual Arts Education from Konstfack in Stockholm. Linda has worked as film director and producer with films shown on national television and international cinema. During the last five years Linda has been focused on developing a pedagogic method and theory around visual practice.
