IHOPEIWILL

IHOPEIWILL

Medium: intermedia performance
Premiere: April 10, 2024
Duration: around 45 mins

How do we imagine a common future not only for ourselves, but for our grandchildren? What do we hope and want to create for them? Can our hopes materialize?

IHOPEIWILL explores our shared future amidst ongoing political tensions and escalating climate challenges. It conveys a sense of expectation and hope despite the prevailing global atmosphere of fear and great uncertainty.

IHOPEIWILL is an event that connects physical performance, sound design, and visual installation. Each of these media works independently one next to the other and simultaneously in synergy, which together create an organic whole.

The inspiration for the piece came from conversations with people in which we were interested in the optics of personal family environment and relationships across generations. What do we envision for the future, not only for ourselves but for the generations after us? What kind of world do we wish for them and what can we do to fulfill those wishes?

IHOPEIWILL thus becomes an artistic reflection of the current trajectory of society and our responsibility towards future generations.

EVERYWHEN 360°

EVERYWHEN 360°

Medium: virtual reality, 360°
Premiere: 2021/07
Duration: 13 mins

A 360° video adaptation of EVERYWHEN – an intermedia performance that deals with the topic of historic recurrence through movement, 3d visuals, and sound spatialization.

An often caring, gentle and well-meaning personal life is contrasted here with the reality of the social individual, who can often be sinister, vengeful and hateful. But how can we be critical to our own worldviews when they are created by those closest to us?

EVERYWHEN

EVERYWHEN

Medium: intermedia performance
Premiere: 2018/02
Duration: 40 mins

EVERYWHEN is an intermedia performance that deals with the topic of historic recurrence through movement, 3d visuals, and sound spatialization.

An often caring, gentle and well-meaning personal life is contrasted here with the reality of the social individual, who can often be sinister, vengeful and hateful. But how can we be critical to our own worldviews when they are created by those closest to us?

A woman as a loving mother who also promotes murder and slavery; a loving couple involved in the propaganda of a perverse ideology; kids that give a fascist salute as if in play. Something is wrong in these scenes. Images of everyday families, mums, and dads with their children, tiny groups of people, close to each other, face to face with the threat of history repeating itself.

Our memories often surface suddenly, changed, idealized, and sometimes they even erase themselves spontaneously. By leaving out key events and rewriting history a barrier is built between the new generation and older people, and this makes it too easy for history to repeat itself.

INBETWEEN

Medium: intermedia performance

INBETWEEN is a performance that explores group tensions in a shifting environment.

“We are more connected than ever, we are changing into a mass that is trying to find balance. We pull and push.”

INBETWEEN is a performance that explores group tensions in a shifting environment animated by constant connectivity and instant reactions. The space amid these tensions becomes a collective mass that needs to be constantly remapped.
