ReMove

InterAkt performance

The performance ReMove portrays a young Malmö skater and her dreams of the future – dreams that are set against a climate crisis that becomes more acute with each passing day. How do dreams and reality meet in action? Should we care, and if so how and about what? The audience participates digitally during the performance. ReMove is Teater InterAkt’s first digital community work and the second collaboration with Parnian Faizi.

Created and performed by Manel Ruiz Blas, Parnian Faizi, Sara Larsdotter Hallquist, Jesper Miikman, Cecilia Nkolina.

Repose

ReposeRepose physically and virtually explores the shifting geographies of the Whakatū/Nelson coastal edge by introducing the lethal Victorian practices of crinolines and the application of the Cartesian grid. Three billowing figures trace current and historic paths, creating a tidal strandline through urban infrastructure and flooding carparks.

With thanks to processional performers Mel McColgan, Lyn Russell and Sally Shaw.
Refinery Artspace; GetFrocked, John-Paul Pochin, Faye and Karl Wulff.

Go Go Go

Artists from Schaumbad Freies Atelierhaus Graz have been looking at car traffic in the city and in June 2021, they made a street performance in Neutorgasse. This was further developed in UpStage and now, under the title Go Go Go reflects on where the development should go. On Saturday 16.10. at 18:00 the artists will perform live from Schaumbad and local audience are welcome, also for the Sunday Art Brunch im Bad.

Created and performed by Katharina Aschauer, cym, Alexandra Gschiel, Eva-Maria Gugg, Doris Jauk-Hinz, Anita Hofer, Rebecca Hofer,  Keyvan Paydar and Eva Ursprung.

Thanks to: Bundes Ministerium für Kunst, Kultur, öffentliche Dienst und Sport (Austria).
