In astronomy, "Cosmic Latte" describes the colour of the universe. With her piece, Finnish choreographer Sonya Lindfors asks how a utopian future might look - when the logic of thought has changed, when black and white are no longer opposites, when boundaries are less sharp and meanings intermingle. Afro-futurism, contemporary art, West African cosmology, Sun Ra and Bach coexist on a stage that is permeable, diverse and beige.
Sonya Lindfors is a choreographer living in Helsinki who in addition to her art, also does community and educational work. She is a founding member and artistic director of UrbanApa, an interdisciplinary and anti-hegemonic art community that offers a platform for new discourses and feminist art practices. In her award-winning works, she tries to break up power structures. She deals with questions of being black, black body politics, representation and decolonial dream practices.
