My Wild Flag is an international dance and performance festival in Stockholm. Consisting of local and international acts and scenarios that propose contemporary choreographic and artistic work. Bringing communities together and joining in social choreographies as well as works devoted for the stage.
Through the years the festival have compiled, matched and forced a mix of institutions, freelance artists and organisations, the list continuously grows. As one know, there is always so much more than what meets the surface: We are disturbed, concerned and engaged with our locality, a context we are part of building together as well as inviting international actis into.
MWF2021 is made possible by generous support from The City of Stockholm, The Swedish Arts Council and Nordic Culture Point. Visitor program made possible by Swedish Art Grants Committee

Emile Pineault (he/him) is a choreographer, performer, curator and cultural worker based in Tiohtiá:ke / Montreal. Through a multidisciplinary practice rooted in body-based research and performance, his work explores desire, sexualities and sensorialities. Bodies and objects mingle and become heaps of textures, shapes, sounds, vibrations, narratives and affects. He develops choreographies which oscillate between, on the one hand, messiness, clumsiness, and unruliness, and on the other hand, intense textures, exacerbated physicalities and a deep sensuality. He composes his creations like sensory poems and he uses duration and repetition to destabilize the relationship with the audience.
