Queer Voguing / Waacking Workshop

A part of the Indigo Flamingo monthly workshop series for the LGBTQIA+ community in Malmö – Vogue and Waacking with Ranya Asadi, in collaboration with Malmö Pride.

Due to illness the Voguing/Waacking workshop has been moved to Nov 26 and the Fusion Belly Dance workshop has been moved to Oct 28.

Explore queer spaces and movement in this Waacking and Vogue Fem workshop. The workshop is a two-parter that will dive into the world of Waacking and Vogue Fem elements. Two different dance styles with strong roots in the underground queer community that focus on the art of self-expression and are both "larger than life."

The workshop with Ranya will be from 13:00 until 15:00 but the doors to Skånes Dansteater will be open at 12:00 if you want to hang out and fika first. 

You are more than welcome to come for just the meet up between 12:00 and 13:00, or just for the workshop or for all of it.

The workshops are absolutely free, just bring yourself and your clothes to dance in. There are places to change.

About Indigo Flamingo Project
'Indigo Flamingo' is a year-long project in which Malmö-based choreographer and dancer Gwyn Emberton is looking to celebrate the two communities of his (fairly) new home city of Malmö, LGBTQIA+ and dance.

Starting with this Waacking and Vogue Fem workshop and going right through to Malmö Pride 2024 Gwyn is hosting monthly meet-ups at Skånes Dansteater on the last Sunday of the month as part of the project 'Indigo Flamingo'. Each meet up is a place to hang out, fika, dance, explore queer movement and a space to share experiences of being part of the LGBTQIA+ community in Malmö in 2023/24. Each workshop is led by a queer dance artist in different styles such as belly dance, vogue, Swedish Folk dance and contemporary. If dancing isn't your thing, you are just as welcome to come for the fika and meeting up only.

Indigo Flamingo is a collaboration between Skånes Dansteater and Malmö Pride.
