the desire to contain and the inevitability of rupture #3

grüntaler9 – a space towards the performative

Moving backwards and forwards simultaneously. Constellating landmarks. Describing territories. Discerning vectors which reflect futures or predict pasts.

This 3 day performance is a series of collaboration duets with artists who are integral to the social fabric of grüntaler9 – a space towards the performative in Wedding, Berlin. The project is entering its 3rd phase which uses artistic methods developed through conversation as navigational instruments that we don’t (yet) know how to use.

During the course of this process the score of a past 9 hour conversation will be extended over 3 days (9 hours per day) so that each hour of the previous conversation becomes 3 hours long. During each 3 hour time frame a new duet will collaborate on two tasks:

1) To describe a territory defined by three conversation landmarks
2) To discern a vector which emerges out of this territory, pointing out

Collaborators include Camilla Graff Junior, Janine Eisenächer, Adriana Disman, Jon Konkol, No Collective (you nakai, et al.), Lindsey Drury, Jöel Verwimp, Jörn J. Burmester and Johanna Gilje. The duets are a method of sharing performance practice as a research, filtering information through multiple structures, or bodily forms.
