Mermaid Oracle is You. Me. They. Curiosity and playfulness are our tools. (Re)searching and mapping new embodied knowledge is the mission. 

Queer is a spatial mode : deviating from a straight line. How is the actual world around us shaping cracks of queerness? Carnivalesque is a “literary mode” : subverting and liberating the assumptions of the dominant style or atmosphere through humor and chaos. 

In later years the notion of Queer has built so much ontological, political and emotional load, that it’s become almost impossible not to cross risky territory to initiate debate. ‘Queer’ has been connecting and separating people. We invite you to walk with us through a shared space, regaining ‘fresh eyes’ by re-searching, exchanging new ‘truths’. Together exploring and co-creating what “my unique inner queer” would move, feel and look like if the concept was born today. 

Our unique voices stirred up with playful elements of the carnival will be co-created to form a virtual trace for the future. We wish for your presence in ‘Mermaid Oracles Are Walking the Line’. The location will be a selected urban space in Copenhagen where you will feel safe to express yourself in a group. Together we’ll deviate from everyday life. From your ‘straight line’ You’s.
