Sonya Lindfors er danshöfundur frá Kamerún og Finnlandi og hefur getið af sér gott orð bæði á Norðurlöndunum og víðar fyrir dansverk sín og skrif, en einnig sem listrænn stjórnandi UrbanApa. 

Í allri sinni vinnu, hefur Lindfors beint sjónum sínum að því að hrista upp í og ögra viðteknum valdastrúktúrum, að valdefla samfélag sitt og skapa þar andrými fyrir róttæka, sameiginlega draumsýn.

How to dream of futures that we don't know yet how to dream of? Well, as Afrofuturist Sun Ra once said: "The possible has been tried and failed. Now it is time to try the impossible."

Radical dreaming can be a powerful tool to reimagine intersectional feminist and decolonial futures – as well as presents.  In her mini talk choreographer Sonya Lindfors talks about the power of speculation, dreams, responsibilities and the decolonial dreaming project We Should All Be Dreaming.
