IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE ANYTHING TO ME
2022


IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE ANYTHING TO ME
30 min.

The title refers to the sci-fi series Westworld. The phrase is a fail-save response to encounters which make the hosts (robots) question their own reality. (In the setting of an Art Fair one might wonder who are hosts and who are guests?)

The movement material is searching for vulnerability and softness in found material from sports, movies, folk dance and everyday gestures. The fragments are looped and mixed with phrases developed by the performers into a slow choreography. The piece is playing with ambivalence and illegibility as an escape from binaries, while questioning hegemony is a “natural” trait.

Composer: Josefine Opsahl
Cello: Hrafnhildur Marta Guðmundsdóttir

Info: Dryppende Stof is a contemporary take on a sapphic community. The piece takes us through feelings of love, ectasy, loss, grief, pain, loneliness and longing in a setting of many feminities, bodies and genres. Opera, drums, complex choir compositions, queer intimacy, rave inspired choreographies and a ritualistic relation to eroticism and nature embody Sapphos words from 620 BC in the great hall of Glypoteket in Copenhagen. 


VANITAS (film)
2021


Video installation based of the performance VANITAS
13 min.

Info: Flowers wither, fruit rot and glass break. Nothing is forever. The title VANITAS refers to baroque still life paintings where the things around us are staged to symbolize both impermanence and vanity. The performance VANITAS will take you into a dark and dreamy world of queer bodies and symbols ruled by change. Here you will meet the precariousness of finding intimacy and meaning in a landscapes dictated by binaries.

VANITAS is performed by professional dancers, performers and singers to a poetic sound collage of popmusic. The performance is filled with ambivalence and everything is in a constant state of transformation.

This performance is a tribute to queer and trans communities everywhere and to those who most be in flux to be whole.
