As part of Malin Arnell’s Avhandling / Av_handling (Dissertation / Through_action) YES! Association / Föreningen JA! completed NYPÅSTIGNA / NEW PASSENGERS together with around 60 participants and the documentation team Sugar Rush Productions | Maria Åkesson together with Tsomak Oga, Sooz Romero, and Debora Vega on May 28, 2016 between 11am and 1pm.
We met at “Ringen” (“The Ring”), Stockholm Central Station central hall and traveled collectively and engaged in looking, moving, reading aloud, and conversing.
NYPÅSTIGNA / NEW PASSENGERS was made as a rhombic trip with Stockholm Public Transport. It took about 2 hours. We traveled from T-Centralen with metro to Liljeholmen, further with tram to Solna Station, and finally we took the commuter rail back to Stockholm Central Station.
We followed a script. Available here NYPÅSTIGNA / NEW PASSENGERS folder.pdf
YES! Association / Föreningen JA!’s first version of this scripted public transport choreography, Zyklische Gesellschaftsreise, took place on the Berlin S-Bahn in 2013 as ACT 5 within WIR SPIELEN (WE PLAY) at nGbK, neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst, Berlin.
