HAIRY TALES

Feminist Punk Circus

With a large dose of physical comedy, flexible bodies and hairy creations, M.P.A.C. creates a clown show for the 21st century.​

HAIRY TALES  is about head hair and body hair – shaved, overgrown, dyed and lost. By putting standards of hair under the microscope and sharing personal experiences, a comic story is revealed on the boundary between theater, circus and performance art.

M.P.A.C. about feminist punk circus: – It is feminist because we are feminists and we have the opportunity to create this show in our own universe without having to deal with nor patriarchal structures or the male gaze. Unlike the norms of traditional circus where women are expected to participate amongst muscular men as a beautiful display, we refuse to be assistants or “fancy props”. Our starting point is similar to punk music as it means to do things in our own way, to create art that might not confirm to the commerially sought and to strive for authenticity before perfection. Through the clown, we reach our ambitions. To us, the clown is by nature anarchic and functions like a kind of society’s conscience. The clown exists in the contact with the audience. Humour is a driving force. At the core is play.

“Surprises with an innovative and most uncomed satire… It is enjoyable and great fun,  neat and incredibly clever thought and done.” – TINA JEPPSSON, BAROMETERN 6.10.2016.

M.P.A.C. creates original works of performing arts through devising steeped in a standard critical and feminist approach. Founding members of M.P.A.C. are Karin Svensson, Jenny Soddu, Kajsa Englund and Camilla Rud.
