Kollision #2: Mimounah Alma & Louisa Palmi
Kollision lets a musician and a poet meet to develop something completely new together, this time Mimounah Alma and Louisa Palmi. Now their joint creation will meet the audience.
What happens when a poet is interpreted by a musician and words turn into soundscapes? What do musical compositions look like in a literary twist when a poet boils down the music to a poem? In Kollision, queer poetry and music meet in a curious exploration, co-creation, cross-disciplinary improvising – and something completely new emerges.
After a great premiere of Kollision in October it is now time for the Malmö-based poet Mimounah Alma and musician Louisa Palmi, based and active in Gothenburg and Norway, to meet after an intense residency. On December 7th, the audience is invited to Inkonst’s big stage to take part in their work process – both the thoughts behind it and the actual result. Music, poetry and an improvised interplay between them take place on stage when completely new works are performed for the first time. In addition, Mimounah and Louisa will both perform their own works but also talk about their creative process together.
Mimounah Alma grew up in Gothenburg, but is now based in Malmö. She has studied literature at the residential college in Angered as well as the writers school at Biskops-Arnöl. Mimounah is published in for example Kultwatch and the magazines 20TAL, L’amour – La mort and Pralin Magasin. Last year she participated in an anthology published by the Gothenburg-based writing collective Since You Asked.
Kollision is a project by Inkonst and PAGE 28 with the support of the Swedish Arts Council and which includes a residency period for the artists as well as a public event. The project aims to create meeting places for queer musicians and poets at the beginning of their career and give them the opportunity to find new forms for their artistry with a focus on the meeting between the art forms. This is the first part of Kollision, which will then be carried out four times in the fall of 2022 and spring of 2023. The selection of the project has partly taken place through the Open Call and the musicians and poets are then paired together by us.
Upcoming dates for Kollision are 8/12 2022, 9/2 2023, 20/4 2023.
