This was a video made to play with the idea of connection/disruption & communication. I was thinking of the different states of flow that exist within those, especially in communication (disruption, suspension, natural flow, new connections, death and renewal). Hanna Junti is the beautiful mover who appears in glimpses wearing a spine out of ropes I made. We collaborated with her on a 9 month research residency based in Tallinn (Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava (STL)) to explore what it means to communicate today when you're in between cultures, places and practices (a little alien, a bby other). We came to the conclusion that communication happens everywhere just as it does within the body ; take for example the gut, it has lots of different flora and bacteria and no monocultures, in short different alien bodies communicate (cooperate, fight, negotiate, connect, disconnect) together to create a functioning ecosystem (and so do we). I took imagery of within the body (DNA, neurones, cells), outside the body (the water from different places through different seasons in different states) and of the body itself to envision how all we all undergo these communication states and we all become other and are in constant flowwww.
This is part of the installation we created together, where we merged our practices me with art and curation and her with theatre and movement. Hope you enjoy part of our little exploration lots of love and happy networking n communicatin within and without your body
