UNEXPECTED PERFORMATIVE ART
Curated by M:ST
Burden is an interactive performance installation that explores intimacy through sensory deprivation, the ingesting of secrets and the sharing of weight.
Allison Cummings is a performer/choreographer/director based in Toronto, Canada and operates under the company name ‘Sore for Punching You’. Her performance and choreographic works tend to explore themes related to interpersonal communication, relationship and the sharing of experience.
Any Slight Mark
ANY SLIGHT MARK is an exploration of perception and the notion of touch through the creation of two linked sound pieces, one focusing on the human body and the other one on space.
The project started during the course ‘Long duration performance’ which took place at the Norwegian Theatre Academy in Fredrikstad during the fall 2011. ANY SLIGHT MARK is based on a collaboration between Emma Örn, Anna Haglund (students at Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts), Siiri Eriksson (graduated from the same school in 2010) and Paolo Zuccotti (student at the Norwegian Theatre Academy).
