JÓRMA (they/them) is the artpop alter ego of music&context maker Jonathan Bonny (he/they). By curating safe spaces meant for their music to be experienced in, JÓRMA encourages the audience to get vulnerable with them. The music combines sensitive singer-songwriter aesthetics with electronic dance music references.
THEY/THEM is an interdisciplinary gathering about othering and belonging. A theatrical pop concert that invites you to reflect on how we look at “the other”.
