The Book

Multilingualism is a part of our history, present and future. We believe that a performing arts field that reflects that reality, and uses multilingualism as an artistic point of departure, can change exclusionary norms – not only within the performing arts, but also in society at large.

In Antologi för en flerspråkig scenkonst (eng. Anthology for a multilingual performing arts) we have compiled knowledge of language, multilingualism, performing arts, body and power. The participants in the book are choreographers, sociolinguists, educators, psychology researchers, playwrights, activists, translators, philosophers, directors among others.

We hope that the anthology can both increase interest in the multilingual performing arts that exist and encourage more performing artists to work with multilingualism!
