Earth, the final frontier! Klingons descend on terrestrial city of Stockholm

Sweden, Stockholm
January 31, 2018 at 11:16 GMT -00:00 · Published

Klingons are coming to the stage of the Turteatern theatre in Stockholm from Saturday, February 3. Tuesday's footage reveals the final preparations falling into place ahead of the 'Visit Qo'noS' performance-lecture debut.

Visitors will experience a live performance that includes a presentation on the Klingons cultures and customs.

According to the artistic director of Turteatern theatre Nils Poletti, the project forms part of a campaign to get “terrans to visit Kronos, or the Klingon Empire in its whole." Poletti explains how the Klingons will enlighten visitors about the “wrongly shown images” from the Star Trek series, offering a new way of perceiving the perspective of 'the other'.

On a more serious note, the collaboration between the Turteaten [theatre] and the Klingon Institute of cultural exchange is intended to open conversation about issues of racism and integration.

Actors and staff are participating in a make-belief concept in which Klingons from the planet Kronos descend on Earth with the purpose to teach humans about their cultural superiority and to rectify the falsified image given to them by the Star Trek series.

Los klingon desembarcarán en el escenario del teatro Turteatern de Estocolmo a partir del sábado 3 de febrero. Imágenes grabadas este martes muestran los preparativos finales antes del estreno de la representación-conferencia 'Visit Qo'noS'.

Los visitantes podrán presenciar una representación en directo que incluye una charla sobre la cultura y las costumbres de los Klingon.

Según el director artístico del teatro Turteatern, Nils Poletti, el proyecto forma parte de una campaña para conseguir que “los terrícolas visiten Kronos, o el imperio Klingon en su totalidad” de manera metafórica. Poletti explica cómo los klingon enseñarán a los visitantes una nueva forma de percibir al extraño, al "otro".

De una manera un poco más seria, la colaboración entre el [teatro] Turteaten y el Instituto de Intercambio Cultural Klingon tiene la intención de abrir un debate sobre temas como el racismo y la integración.

Tanto los actores como el personal participante quieren mostrar un escenario en el que los klingon del planeta Kronos bajen a la Tierra con el propósito de enseñar a los humanos su superioridad cultural y rectificar la imagen falsificada que les otorga la serie Star Trek.
