Red Plague / Make Sound Residency
Julie Nymann, Signe Raunkjær Holm
7 December 2020 - 20 December 2020
‘Red Plague’ (working title) explores the displacement between a live performance and the echo thereof. The title refers to the social phenomenon of ‘dancing epidemics’, especially the incident in 1518 which came to be known as the ‘Dancing Plague of Strasbourg’. This epidemic started when one woman came out of her house and suddenly started dancing, and several hundreds of people joined in.
Instrumental Bodies / Make Sound Residency
Lars Kynde, Soeine Bac
9 November 2020 - 4 December 2020
Danish composer and inventor Lars Kynde and Canadian visual artist and dancer Soeine Bac meet in the Make Sound residency to explore their shared interest in integration of sound and movement. They will together transform the space into a large mechanical acoustic instrument-body of strings and steel, which Soeine Bac will explore in relation to her own body by dancing inside it and altering the timbres with her body weight.

3 February 2021 - 7 February 2021
A symposium programme with lectures, panel discussions, screenings, installations and performances. The aim of the symposium and surrounding programme is to show how artistic research and artists today are looking for new ways to engage with and make sense of our climate futures. We all know what is at stake and still surprisingly little is being done to challenge our clear but nonetheless dark scenarios. So how do artists produce new knowledge or new sense of what we already know?
