About the artists and program
October 1 & 2, 2016
Zoë Poluch (b. in London, Canada. Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.)
1pm (45 minutes)
In her solo dance EXAMPLE, Zoë Poluch investigates whether it is possible to create timeless dance. How should dance look, taste, feel, sound? It begins in darkness before Poluch takes the audience on a journey through imaginary and fictional landscapes. The choreographic material is made by choreographers of different generations, countries, and styles. EXAMPLE is presented in collaboration with Tour de Dance, a new independent platform for dance, founded by Stina Dahlström, Tove Dahlblom and Anna Efraimsson.
Anna Pehrsson (b. in Boliden, Sweden, in 1973. Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.)
Cut in/Fold Out
3pm (App. 60 minutes)
Surface and superficiality are not the same thing; the body is a surface of layers and folds. In Anna Pehrsson’s performance, she begins with the body as a projection surface for the ideas that form the age in which we live. She surfs on the energy and approaches an intimacy based on friction and instability rather than the safe and familiar. The work is in collaboration with Thomas Zamolo (lighting) and Siegmar Zacharias (artistic advisor).
Performance lecture PLEASE NOTE only October 1st
4.30 pm (20 minutes)
August 20 & 21, 2016
Dinis Machado (b. in Porto, Portugal, in 1987. Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.)
1pm (App. 50 minutes)
In Paradigm, Dinis Machado creates a homemade folklore for bodies with unclear identities. He invents fictional objects and creates alternative stories with movements, rituals, and music. This process creates an atmosphere that is both familiar and unfamiliar in which he poses questions about deviation and belonging. Paradigm has previously been performed at WELD in Stockholm, Milvus Artistic Research Center (MARC) in Kivik, and Tjörnedala art gallery in Baskemölla, among others.
Rachel Tess (b. in Portland, Oregon, USA, in 1980. Lives and works in Kivik, Sweden.)
3pm (60 minutes)
Thirteen photographs form the starting point for Rachel Tess’ new performance. The images use Tess herself as a subject and depict thirteen different contexts. What associations and stories do these images create? How can they be translated into movement? Using the qualities of the photographs, Tess creates a series of short performance acts that can be seen both as individual portraits and as a whole. Scratch is a collaboration between Rachel Tess (dance and choreography), Luis Alberto Rodriguez (photography), and Uli Ruchlinski (sound and lighting).
September 11, 2016
Helena Olsson (b. in Ängelholm, Sweden, in 1982. Lives and works in Malmö, Sweden.)
Touch Tour Wanås
2pm (1–1,5 hours)
How do we look at the art at Wanås? In a guided performance tour of the park, Helena Olsson takes us through the Wanås Konst collection by touching the artworks. A dozen works have been chosen, and for each individual work, the visitors follow a specially prepared method. The focus is not only physical contact, but also touching the artworks according to specific instructions. The tour and the art become just as much a tactile as visual experience, as well as a reflection on the role of the tour guide as bearer of knowledge. Touch Tour began as a collaboration between artists Helena Olsson and Lily Benson.
