A NEW MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE OF 3 WOMEN IN COLLABORATION WITH A SOUND ARTIST
COLLECTIVE / (HI)STORY – EMOTIONAL LANDSCAPE OF THE BODY – BODY / MEMORY – IDENDITY – FEMININITY / WOMANHOOD
– prof female dancer / performer, 50+
-> interest in exploration of text / voice
-> experience with partnering work
– female audio-visual or vocal-sound artist.
(encouraging professionals as well as master students to get in touch)
After having started to explore this theme in frame of a solo research that has resulted in DEPTH OF SHADOW [solo performance] my desire is to invite interesting and inspiring fellow artists to research, explore and create together.
This work looks into body memory and identity, the (hi)story we carry and store within our cells, the movement and dialogue that can be created from and between those stories and memories. Considering all the information we carry within us, that is shaping us and our physiology: To which extent is our body (not) our own?
The project and its creative process will be around / with / created by women. As this new work will be equally a work about womanhood, femininity & the female body. I am searching for a “senior” dancer / performer who would like to join this journey. I would love to collaborate with women of different generations & back grounds.
If addressing and speaking about trauma, I want to talk about the power to transcend and step beyond, to live through it. I want to talk about transformation, power & empowerment.
#1: My plan is to hold thematically related workshops, possibly before and definitely during the project and to use “out comings” in form of visual / video and sound material in the performance.
#2: The project will include the production of a new installation work and dance film.
My desire is equally to work with video and (live) projections in frame of the performance. I also want to explore the use of text and voice in this work.
WHERE & WHEN:
1st research | production period incl. performance: 29 APRIL – 19/20 MAY 2019
in frame of a residency @ Schloss Broellin (De)
WHAT I CAN OFFER | PAYMENT:
Funding (as well as later, further performance possibilities) TBC
I am organizing a crowdfunding campaign and am aiming at a min pay of 500,- EUR / week.
So far, covered / taken care of during the 1st research period:
-> travel to/from Schloss Broellin
I am certain that the residency at Schloss Broellin, which offers amazing facilities, is going to be a beautiful adventure with an amazing result – I have no doubt about it.
Having said that, artists / performers who will be part of this project, will invest their time and energy (to say the least) and I do stand for artists getting paid, if somehow possible.
Any questions about the project and/or related process / logistics, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
IF INTERESTED / HOW TO GET IN TOUCH:
For the nature / thematic of this project, the research and creation process will be pretty personal. For the first research period we will come together in a 3 week residency.
I will direct the process, however, am equally looking forward to the alchemy that happens in collaboration and when sharing the studio space with other creative minds and beings.
