PERFORMANCE: STEPHEN STAMPER (sound) & NADJA PÄRSSINEN (dance) In Let the wandering talk on it´s own behalf multidisciplinary dance piece, choreographer and dancer Nadja Pärssinen and sound artist Stephen Stamper have studied the wandering in a relation to the sound and video material works from the 12 hours of hiking in Trolltunga-hiking road in Norway. At the heart of the solo’s interdisciplinary work is to observe the choreographic thinking, moods and longing that emerge from walking, bringing to light a relationship to vast natural landscapes, corporeality, mythologies, memories and use of technology pierced by a video camera lens.
PERFORMANCE: CHIARA ALISSA ESTIARIZ LOPEZ (performance) "Thinking with vegetative bodies in 2436 meters above the sea" - moving microbial metacommunities is a transdisciplinary performance which evolved together with the sound designer Mélia Roger while the residency in summer of 2021 at the non-profit association Alpine Research Station Furka (ALPFOR) iniciated by the Master's programme Transdisciplinarity in the Arts at Zurich University of Arts in Switzerland.
The focus of the research is the species of lichen Rhizocarpon geographicum, also known as the map lichen, which grows on bare rocks like on the Furkapass. In this performative encounter, she has been guided by the natural habitat of the map lichen and has thus been able to establish a bond with the alpine environment. It opened up for both artists space for care and empathic listening of a such vegetative body in touch with the human body.
