Captured by the audience

Following the performances at MIA Fair, the project caught a life of its own as many captured the essence of the performance in their own way. Thank you for sharing! Here are some of the photos I found on instagram at #theeconomicbody

Into a new reality

How can different systems in society co-exist under unequal conditions?

you see the reality
you create a model
that changes your perception of the world
into a new world
you see a new reality
create a new model
that changes your perception of the world
into a new world
into a new reality
– Audience reflection, 24-09-2014

Two systems 

like the two poles of a magnet
as though they almost hate each other
they are inseparable
what happens when they meet on equal conditions?
can they meet on equal conditions?
do they want to meet on equal conditions?
will one overcome the other?
or are they like the poles of a magnet
destined to never meet?

Analyzing reflections

in drawings and text from the audience at Weld in Stockholm, September 2014. The analysis is part of the iterated phases that generate progress throughout the project. Further choreographic material is created based on the audience’s reflection and in that sense the choreographic process is interactive.

Many different systems
Co-exist in society
Some are more powerful than others

the interdisciplinary process so far, a PechaKucha presentation was held for Kulturbryggan’s annual meeting at Solliden, Stockholm. PechaKucha is a creative presentation format developed in Japan, consisting of 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each, for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

“In order for interdisciplinary discussion to occur, one needs to create a situation for it. A choreographer has the ability to create this type of situation through the artistic practice.”
– PechaKucha 10-15-2014


one day of work at Weld, art photographer Caroline Foerster was present during our artist residency in July 2014.
