Performance

Performance artist Yingmei Duan (CN/DE) presents her work Instant at the opening on Friday, 15 June

Don´t ask from where I have come
My home is far, far away
Why do you wander so far
Wander so far, wander so far
For the little bird free I wander
For the brook clear and limpid
For the meadow green and wide
I wander, wander so far


The first phrases of the Chinese song "The Olive Tree" creates a poetic backdrop for this performance by Yingmei Duan.

Workshops

Animating a performing archive

The aim of the workshop is to find ways of animating the archive through interventions in and presentations of material from the archive. We will experiment with actualization, re-enactment, embodiment, and other forms of engagement in, interpretation and presentation of selected material from the archive. We can consider an archive like this as a more or less dormant memory of artistic performative acts. Bringing works to life is not only an act of repetition and rememberance, it also means examining their (potential) meanings in our particular time and place. The workshop will hence research and bring to life works that the participants find relevant for our contemporary life and their own practices.

The workshop will take place within a theoretical horizon inspired by queer and performance theory where existing and conventional acts are seen as scripts to be performed but also critically examined, as every new performance is a chance for rethinking and change.

Workshop leaders:

Mary Coble is an artist and professor at the Funen Art Academy.

Judith Schwarzbart is a curator and currently a PhD fellow at Performance Design, Roskilde University.
