Welcome to an evening with two works by choreographer Marcus Doverud and artist Liv Strand: the performance piece ‘Tja chat tjena chien, concerning mimetic displacement’ (40 minutes) and a celebration by a short introduction of the new collaboratively written book ‘Viformation’ (We-formation).
‘Tja chat tjena chien, concerning mimetic displacement’ departs from mime as a concept and a form of delivery. How something can be brought to experience and be understood, coexists with what it is to expose something through embodying it. Giving it another body. The displacement that the mimes brings about has to do with an embodiment. Basic to mime as stage performance is that another body, the imitating one, show a facet of what is mimed. In the work ‘Tja chat tjena chien, concerning mimetic displacement’ imitation also happens by stories we tell. The performance was made 2016 for the performance festival Revolve in Uppsala.
Thanatos – an experimental chamber music drama exploring the dark side of the human psyche – aggression, destructive urges, everything that is popularly referred to as “evil”. The performance involves four musicians, each of whom will be playing a theatrical role and expressing their character through music and movement on stage. The music is partly precomposed by Martina Tomner, and partly improvised based on instructions given by the composer.
