Sigrid Stigsdatter is on a residency in Stockholm from October 4-17, 2021:

Cat Cow Cat Cow is a wish to work fragmented and make space for the OMG dramaturgy to work. OMG dramaturgy is a method where things unfold one after the other without needing transition or reason, much like an album. OMG works for picking out all of the things in a process that is totally OMG and deserves to be on stage as material for no other reason than that it’s so OhMyGod. I believe this way of throwing material creates a space that is punk and magic.

I wanna see how naming movements like the Cat and the Cow makes space for stories and characters, I wanna create myths and paradoxes where fiction becomes the map from where reality can be reimagined. With Cat Cow Cat Cow I wanna investigate undulation in body, voice and sound as a way to create material not only to be looked at, but to be sensed, to be absorbed as a way of investigating other ways of experiencing in the theater than the penetrating gaze.

My choreographic work investigates future feminism, erotics and intimacy, the sensing body and how this keeps being a complicated place to work from. I want the complicated, the messy, the emotional, the sensitive and details. Always details. The details keeps me busy in the theater, a place I keep insisting to work with choreography and staging dance and performance in.
