Stina Fors – Stina Force
Stina Fors invites us to a unique live concert in the courtyard of brut nordwest. Stina Force is a punk band. She is a choreographer, performance artist, drummer, and singer, born in Sweden and currently based in Vienna. She sometimes kills with a powerful voice, sometimes seduces until exhaustion. Her howls are not mere words; they are fused with spits and fluids, a certain wetness. She uses the hammering of her drums, her voice and body to experiment and improvise a live set that is never the same. A play between the stable and unstable becomes a thrilling and nerve-wrecking force.
Stina Fors was a regular performer in the nightlife of Amsterdam before she moved to Vienna. She has toured various music, dance, and theatre festivals across Europe as well as in the U.S. with her one-woman punk band. There are no recordings of the music, the material is created live in the moment. Stina found her love for sound and the voice and from there developed a repertoire of solo performances exploring her interest for what a ‘sounding body’ can be. At times she creates growling monologues, ventriloquist songs, and dinosaur calls. Stina was part of the improvised goth jazz duo SEKT (NL), and she collaborates in works of other artists across Europe as a drummer, performer, and vocalist.
