Moss and me is a one-on-one relationship counseling session between humans and the plant world. It is also a love story. It is co-created by a human and moss. If you feel that you want to work on and deepen your relationship with nature you might want to book an appointment. There are very limited slots to this work. It is situated in the human author’s home, in Seltjarnarnes. Sessions need to be booked at least four days beforehand with information about a phone number that can be reached and an email address.
Experiencing a sense of depletion by complicated communication in many of my everyday relationships with people, I had a strong desire to have someone in my life to simply nurture. Inspired by a friend that acquired a chicken after his elderly farmer uncle passed away, I got two chickens – Pina and Toni. I am trying to create and sustain a friendship with these chickens living in my backyard and I ask myself what I learn in that process.
This work is an invitation to listen: to a body, a dance, a landscape - of sounds and silences becoming present in one moment and leaving in the next. It is a fluid exploration of dance and how it can be shaped and experienced if the focus lies not in the eye, but in the ear. How does what we see change, transform, become, appear, disappear or remain if we experience them through their sounds?
Appearing in the movement of water is a solo piece where lines are traced in between what seems isolated, creating ephemeral sculptures and live images with everyday life objects and elements from the surroundings. In this performance, body and elements brings to the space questions concerning mobility, orientation, territories, and the female body. These questions appear and disappear over time, going from the abstract to the concrete and from micro to macro scale.
As a woman in her early forties, dancer and choreographer Lovísa Ósk Gunnarsdóttir has become fascinated by menopause and middle-aged women. In her new performance work “When the Bleeding Stops”, she addresses the excruciating silence and taboo that seems to engulf this topic in Western society.
'One Collective Breath’ is a new performance work that pays homage to the colourful world of Icelandic choral culture. Situated inside the 'Currently Unnamed Choir', you are intertwined with its members amidst a rehearsal unfolding. Through the highs and lows of learning a new song, what begins as an ordinary evening practice evolves into a living, expanding encounter with a composition. The work is a celebration of our simultaneous existence - exploring community, note by note - the moments we unconsciously share every time we breathe together.
Exposure is the result of a research that started as a series of encounters between myself and an automatic photo booth. After a year of experiments and explorations, the work I will share takes the shape of a solo stage performance that deals with a vulnerability and loneliness living deep within me.
This work might be biographic. Or not.
