Through a set of spaces and moments An attendee explores the potential relationship of the human species to relate to the grounds it is existing upon. It looks for that “gap” space, where neither “the one” nor “the other” exists, but primarily its interference pattern. 

The ground and performer appear to alter one another to find details and fractures of missing links, information and memory. In the catacombs of western patriotism, where eco-feminism is bonding with fascism and late (and tired) capitalism, the performing materials are still restlessly vibrating. An echo, an echo, can never, can never, be taken, be taken, back, back.

In this zone, the work searches for an area alongside different materials and conversations, hoping to sense possible ways of “attending”, even in great impossibility and uncertainty.

Referenced attendees of this work are the artists Alina Popa, Ana Mendieta, Camille Claudel, Chantal Akerman and Teresa Winter.

About Antonia Steffens

Antonia Steffens (Germany, 1992) is an Amsterdam based performer, dramaturg and advisor. She studied contemporary dance and choreography in Cologne and Amsterdam. In her practice, Antonia looks for a dialogue in between spectatorship and material, often to be found in an environment made out of movement, objects, materials, light and sound. Antonia’s recent interest lies in researching ways of attention that exceed the separate/binary idea of subjectivity and focuses on the concept of co-emergence.
