My Wild Flag

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.

The festival is made possible with financial support by the city of Stockholm and co-produced by Dansens Hus, MDT and Moderna Museet.

MWF is curated by Karina Sarkissova and Pontus Pettersson

Karina Sarkissova

Organizer & Curator

Karina works with choreography from several sides; dramaturgical, curatorial and other things related to context. She is based in Stockholm, with studies from School For New Dance Development and Dutch Art Institute. Karina is interested in the cultural and political body, and its locality.

Pontus Pettersson

Organizer & Curator

Working in the expanded field of choreography and contemporary dance, Pontus' work is anything in-between fountain making and cat practicing to curating festivals and dancing. Where hospitality and temporality can be seen as two major choreographic and artistic principles, as well as more open fields of study such as poetry and water.
