Live Stream Performance Residency
Trauma Bar und Kino 04.12.20
Skin Between is a performance and workshop process emerging from the collective isolation of the Covid-19 Pandemic. It explores deeper listening to and expression of our individual bodies in a performative context. Every moment we absorb and expel innumerable types of bacteria, breath, energy, emotion and information. It is with the skin that we understand the boundaries between our inner and outer worlds, how we touch another body and feel love on a visceral level.
As a queer, transgendered dance artist, I am particularly curious how queer bodies, as well as queer notions of love and relationships can confront and question patriarchal heteronormative colonial powers. I believe it is through deep listening to our own unique bodies, that transformation and expression can redefine our place in the arts and society in general.
'Skin Between' was performed at Backsteinboot Artist Collective in Spandau (July 2020), had a residency at Trauma Bar und Kino (7 - 20 September and 20 November to 6 December) and Tanzfabrik (2 - 5 November) and has been offered as a two week laboratory at The Village and Backsteinboot community spaces from new to full moon (22 September - 1 October) with performance at FreshEra at Else Club (24.09.2020).
We are now seeking future development and presentation opportunities. Please contact me via social media links above for enquires and opportunities to develop/perform this work.
At it’s heart, Skin Between is about a deep trust through and between the bodies who perform it. I finish this description with a quote that has permeated the creative process, from ‘ColourlessTsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage’ by Haruki Murakami:
‘Between skin and skin, there is only light.’
