Excerpt from script:
Radical Empathy: A Continuous Score

Radical Empathy: A Continuous Score (2017-ongoing) is a performance developed in response to the recent re-emergence of neo-fascistic movements in Sweden where groups such as Nordiska Motståndsrörelsen/Nordic Resistance Movement among others have gained strength, both in membership and in their visual and performative tactics that informs the blatant public exhibitionism. How have these groups co-opted the visual and performative strategies? The genesis for Radical Empathy: A Continuous Score resides in a call to action by the initiators (current P*D*A* members) to the different contexts the members identify with (Korea, USA, Brazil, Sweden and Denmark), to collectively mobilize around the urgent need to resist the swiftly intensifying normalization of fascism that litter the everyday public spaces and shape imaginaries.

Performed at the artist run platform SKOGEN in Gothenburg (2018).



Public* Display* of Actions*

Is an anti-fascist platform using performance and speech tactics from street and guerilla theater, agitprop, Speakers' Corners, and political assemblies, to initiate contexts for collective experience, demonstration, and dialogue insisting on vigilance and direct process as a dramaturgical method and approach. P*D*A* Is in its current manifestation excited by the potential of radical empathy as an imaginative prism. A prism creating a spectrum of possibilities to find new tools of action and awareness. How can the visual and performative literacy of art be shared and used collectively among artists, activists, researchers, and the general public to navigate the swiftly changing social and political climate?
