With Valerie Solanas as inspiration for her honest and vulgar expression Ellinor Ljungkvist has choreographed scenes into Angry Stories, a dance- and performance art piece that is based on true and angry stories from the dancers. In the piece they share thier personal and real experiences from a serious but absurd and comical perspective. They re-embody and re-tell their stories in a genuin way to reveal taboos and truths that effects women emotionally, and refer to artists dealing with evilness and witchcraft as Mary Wigman, Charles Manson and Burzum. The piece combines reality and fiction with a very cinematic aesthetic and theatrical performativity. It addresses many themes as the climate change, feminism and angriness in its many forms. Expressions such as dance, performance, speech, music and song are combined and narrated into an emotional dance-story.

Disapproval of emotional “scenes“ leads to fear of strong emotion, fear of one's own anger and hatred. Fear of anger and hatred combined with a lack of self-confidence in one's ability to cope with and change the world, or even to affect in the slightest way one's own destiny, leads to a mindless belief that the world and most people in it are nice and the most banal, trivial amusements are great fun and deeply pleasurable.
Valerie Solanas, SCUM Manifesto
