5. – 7.10.18 – meeting buoy @ gtf jahrestagung, karlsruhe

Meeting Buoy exposes a particular part of my research on intermateriality and movement, which is currently based at the University of the Arts Helsinki. It interlaces documentary video clips of outdoor movement practice on the island Suomenlinna with live projections of drawings, materials and texts. The relationship between human, thing, (im)material context and bodily practice is dealt with in the context of this specific example.

Suomenlinna is part of the city of Helsinki and largely determined by its sea fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991, built in the 18th century and extending over all four parts of the island. I work in this context about once every month since November 2016, close to rocks and water. In September 2017 I found a buoy on the shore – big, round, heavy and pink. I pulled her onto the rock and she has been part of my working practice every since. An anchor by my side, a planetary globe, a trusted friend. I never know if she will still be there when I next return.

Meeting Buoy is the story of an unexpected romance between a dancer and a buoy, subject to tides and changing circumstances.

A new place, a new country, a new site. Everything is unknown.

I begin to work, here and there now. Here: Rocks, water, military.

On my first day (16.12.2016) I walk all around the islands and find two spots to work in. I huddle into the rock. I climb up a slope. I sound from the throat.

I hear the sea speak back to me and see the rocks arranged in their three-dimensionality.

Exploring a site in Berlin. A stranger in a known place. Behind buildings, on a nodal point. Here is everything at once – remnants of Nazi Germany, a long stretch of the wall, the city parliament, a refugee accomodation, a memorial stone from the American Air Force, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (behind a large fence), many security cameras, the place as such, returning street sweepers, people on lunch break, urban wilderness, tourists passing throuch, trees, artists doing their work. What is rock, what is body, what is history, what is now, what is movement – here?

Shared performance making of sorts – corres-pond-dances with dear colleague Amaara Raheem in Melbourne (AUS).

A work in progress. Using various means of communication we send each other things, feelings and thoughts across oceans. Our dance is a correspondance; an enquiry into multiple modes of transference and transformation, crossing distances, inquiring into possibilities of living.

One white rock – hand-to-hand – now on its way to you. (2.11.2016)

Go well white rock!
