Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen & Antonia Steffens
Residency February 2020
During their residency at Veem House For Performance, Antonia Steffens and Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen are continuing the process of ‘Spinner’ that will premiere in summer 2020. Spinner deals with our collaborative practice that explores how to propose, enter and negotiate spaces in between and to one another. Exceeding the interest of being a duet, the piece is situated in a landscape of elements that has to be responded to, activated and re interrogated. Dance and performance is understood as a visible and tangible layer that turns into a manifesto of multiple encounters, narratives and experiences in motion and relation. The work is looking for a state of attendance, in the hope to find new dimensions of possible meaning, logics and yet unknown spaces of existence, that escape the daily focus.
