Nicola van Straaten – “haunting with venus”

is a research project that works with themes of imperial lineage and colonial contracts, embodied and somatic practices, myth and storytelling, song and dance. The work aims to set up situations where ritual and relationship can guide and support us in the complex navigation of inherited imperial belief systems and decolonial psycho-somatic labour.

Siri Salminen & Henna-Elise Selkälä – “Then, Ur_Balance”

is an embodied research on vulnerability through movement and rhythm. With our (a)rhythmic footwork we ask what is the sound of vulnerability. By consciously entering embodied states of awkwardness, instability and the uncomfortable, we invite the audience on a journey to what it is to be human in the times when the world around us is shaking; where permanence and stability have turned out to be an illusion. Instead of falling into dystopian despair however, we get curious about the possibilities of these shaky places and move through them.

Chew Shaw & Zee Zunnur – “The Main Wire is Compromised”

Discovering practice & pushing the limits of physicality. Zee as a movement artist delves into finding out what constitutes her artistic practice with Shaw as a dramaturg/outside eye. This residency marks the crossing of a threshold in Zee’s life and practice, as well as a developmental foray into dramaturgy for Shaw.

Marcos Nacar – “I don’t know Carmen”

is an ongoing research departing from the personal archive of Carmen Passols, found in Barcelona in 2018 shortly after her passing. It investigates states of presence and absence and their translation to dance; relates in an informal way to the Opera Carmen de Bizet and proposes an expansion of the notion of grieving. Idk Carmen produces dances for absent bodies and bodies that do not belong.
