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 escapes.’ is a participatory performance where the audience interacts with the set design, sound, light and artists of the work. The performance is approximately 80 minutes long.
‘and–akter’ is presented as a series of installations and performances. During 2020 - 2021, the work has been performed as online-participatory iterations at Galleri BOX (Gothenburg) Krupa Gallery (Wrocław) and Rah Residency (Tehran). The performances at Weld will be the first time the work meets an audience in a shared, physical room. They are followed by a sculptural iteration titled ‘det är ett rop på hjälp’ (it is a cry for help), which opens as Eldhunden in Stora Mossen on October 7th, 2021.
‘and–akter’ is an extensive work shared by artists Hanna Wildow, Alva Willemark Mesaros and Tony Karlsson Savci, made together with Johan Wahlberg (sounds) and Marita Mätlik (technician). Video photography Adam Nilsson, press photography Märta Thisner, costume embroidery Dick Hedlund, graphic guidance Moa Edlund, wording council Litia Perta, breath counseling Sara Haylett-Utberg.
