Crow, Knife and Letters
With a shared passion for making and performing dances by composing them instantly we, dance artists Alkistis Theophilou, Marianthi Michailidou and Bettina Neuhaus have been working together in the studio in January in Amsterdam to share our artistic practice and carry it forward.
After having waited since 2020 for the opportunity to meet finally in person we, Canadian dance artist Susanna Hood and I are thrilled to meet finally in person in Berlin from 22 to 29 November and work on a first version of TENDING DECAY, an interactive installation inspired by the pandemic experience and exploring caring for the other in absence.
A visit to earth, air and trees
Together with a wonderful group of participants I spent this late autumn 2 days in the large nature reserve of the Oberwald in Karlsruhe. A breathtaking eco-system with a unique biodiversity of trees such as Pedunculate oaks and hornbeams, shrubs, fungi, animals and insects of all kinds: An unforgettable visit to our ancestors, that came to earth millions of years before us.
