Collapsing Distance (2018)

Premiere 18. januar 2018 ved Dansens Hus, Oslo, Norge. 

Collapsing Distance synthesizes a number of themes which have permeated Siri & Snelle’s productions since their founding in 1992. Feminine aggression and forbidden feelings explored earlier (e.g. The Closet, 2013, and Grums, 2014) will be revisited through a collective investigation with other artists.

A vital element to this work will be its nomadic development, allowing the project to be informed by different surroundings and conditions and actively collapsing the distance between art and work, aesthetics and life, age and experience, local and global. As individuals and collective, how can we stand up against society´s demands and expectations?

In exploring the feminist theme of Collapsing Distance, key concepts will include: the body, bestiality, pleasure, posing, destraction, sensuality and exhaustion. In other words, an aggregate of sensory experiences and perceptions.
