a public rehearsal / glimpse into a process
You are invited into a breathing, humming pine forest called Gränseskogen.
A reservoir of unspoilt trees in the deepness of a rural Swedish mountain chain.
Voices offer you proposals for how to orient your lungs.
An ambient landscape lulling you through eight acts of bodyings, feelings, breathings, languagings, voicings, borderings, rootings and deathinings.
and–akter imagines other ways of being together; a sphere for moving air between one body and another, for making sounds, and listening.
For everyone with a breathing body.
"and–akter. rehearsals of escape" is a shared work by Hanna Wildow, Alva Willemark and Tony Karlsson Savci, made together with Johan Wahlberg (sounds), Adam Nilsson (DOP), and Litia Perta (wording council). Live technical assistance by Dick Hedlund and Erik Malmsten, graphic guidance by Moa Edlund, breath and movement counseling by Sara Haylett-Utberg.
"and–akter. rehearsals of escape" is presented as a series of iterations and propagations. The first iteration was shown at Galleri BOX (Gothenburg) in August 2020, the second at The Virtual Canvas Project (Krupa Gallery, Poland) in March 2021, and Rah Residency presents the third one. In September 2021, and–akter will premier as an IRL-performance at Weld (Stockholm), and in October 2021 the sculptural elongation 'det är ett rop på hjälp' (it is a cry for help) opens at Eldhunden (Stockholm), followed by another performance iteration at Galleri Verkligheten (Umeå) in November 2021.
