Within Practice 2022

13-18 June

Liz Kinoshita VOLCANO ©Giannina Urmeneta Ottiker

Within Practice is a festival for contemporary dance practices. In 2022 Within Practice will be in conjunction with the final week of MDTs summer festival Lustholmen. Teaming up with Anrikningsverket, we will also present a number of concerts. So, come, take part, share, listen, watch and indulge yourself in the core of dance-making, and experience the practices themselves. 

 

This year’s festival will open up to include even more formats: a series of artist conversations, contemplative concerts, and performances, as well as a festival finale party – a celebratory bang! As in previous editions of the festival, you will find a rich program of workshops, practice presentations, and sharing sessions with a fantastic line-up of artists, including Bambam Frost, Liz Kinoshita, Samlingen, Alma Söderberg, Tiran Willemse, Andros Zins-Browne among others. 

 

The festival focuses on practice and practices from the perspective of the practitioner. The concept of practice(s) is widely-used within dance and choreography today; some would even say it is overused. However, the idea of practice can provide an opportunity to move beyond the projectification of the art and instead insist on other long-term approaches. Practice can offer a way of generating choreography and movement – to train/repeat (to practice). At Within Practice, we aim to emphasize the inherently experimental and insistent qualities of practices, offer a space for practicing, discussions, and artist presentations and continue to build community among practitioners in resonance with discussions on what contemporary practices can be today.

 

Welcome!

BamBam Frost: Workshop

BamBam Frost YES © Märta Thisner

BamBam Frost is a choreographer, dancer, and performer, raised and based in Stockholm. She has a bachelor’s degree in contemporary dance from DOCH/SKH and has extensive experience working as a dancer with other choreographers. Since 2017, Frost has been initiating, choreographing, and performing her own works.

Her first full-length work SORRY premiered in the spring of 2018, followed by SO SORRY, which toured Sweden with Riksteatern in the spring of 2019. BamBam’s performance YES had its international premiere at Dansehallerne in Copenhagen in May 2021. In the fall of 2021, BamBam Frost presented ”A Choreographic Conversation” together with Lydia Östberg Diakité at Moderna Museet in Stockholm. They premiered their joint work ”odödlig topp – immortal summit” that fall. BamBam is currently preparing a piece for four dancers that is set to premiere at MDT in November 2022.

Workshop:

BamBam’s artistic practice is essentially about being open to change, insisting on pleasure, fiction, and transformation––ideas that create different movement practices for each individual piece. Participants are invited to a workshop where they can try a series of practices that are the foundation of her latest work.

BamBam is interested in the entertainment culture and the social dances spanning from the 1920s to the present day. Participants are invited to explore BamBam’s aesthetic world and her frame of reference together with her. We will partly try rocking which is the basis of the performance SORRY. A play with images, dances, and poses from popular culture, which we slowly transform through repetition. An exploration of their potential, in search of suggestions on how they might take shape in a speculative future or a parallel world. We will also work with the associative dance practices (a concept coined by Lydia Ö. Diakité) which are the basis of the work YES, as well as exploring the material that is currently taking shape for the new piece.

This is BamBam’s first workshop for professionals, and she is looking forward to exploring what the material can turn out to be together with you.

Liz Kinoshita: Workshop

11 O'clock Liz Kinoshita © Giannina Urmeneta Ottiker

Liz Kinoshita was born in Toronto, Canada and moved to Europe in 2002. She graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, Belgium in 2008 and has since worked with ZOO/Thomas Hauert, Tino Sehgal, Good Move/Eleanor Bauer, Hiatus/Daniel Linehan, Ornella Mamba, Joachim Koester, as well as making and touring her own work internationally with collaborators such as Clinton Stringer, Justin F. Kennedy, Salka Ardal Rosengren, among others. In 2013 she started her research into the mechanisms of the musical. In 2014 she created VOLCANO, a contemporary dance backstage musical performance. In 2017 Liz premiered Radical Empathy (commissioned by Den Danske Scenekunstskole) and You Can’t Take It With You, an in-the-round performance about waste vs necessity.  Liz was part of the artistic team for West Side Story (2020) on Broadway, choreographed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and directed by Ivo van Hove.  Liz has been a core member of voices of dance (VOD) and State Of The Arts (SOTA) advocating for rights and concerns of contemporary dance artists in Belgium.  She has taught workshops and mentored at various dance programs in Europe and North America.  Liz’s newest creation 11 O’clock is being shared on stage and screen in 2021-2023.

Workshop:

In my practice I focus on both physical and vocal tonality, tempo, and timbre.  I aim to strengthen the physical tonus of less usual co-ordinations than what may previously have been practiced, working on pivoting from automatic pathways and learning to wake up and/or let go of different muscles to support alignment, elevating dynamic dancing in any body architecture a dancer or choreographer may want to explore.  I love to exercise a physical relationship with rhythm and with vocals, to play with expectations, to engage an audience in hopefully an all-encompassing experience.  I want to share scores for writing music I have developed collaboratively, practicing threading content or themes into choreographic writing via lyrics, then assembling all the elements together, using a balance of set and improvised material to build nuggets of performance to be rigorously practiced.  I will offer tools to investigate these nuggets of performance materials, to learn what they are by figuring out what they are not, to invest in where they have been and where they are going, to know them intimately, to reflect together, to be able to stay curious and playful so the materials may have an optimal potential of resonating when shared.

Alma Söderberg: Workshop

Alma Soderberg, Deep Etude, 2018 at An Evening of Performances © Christa Holka

Alma Söderberg is a choreographer and performer who works with music and dance. She uses her voice and body to play the space in between as if it was an instrument. Her ongoing research deals with how we listen as we look; the relationship between the ear and the eye. She has grounded her practice in a number of solo performances, Deep Etude, Nadita, and more. Söderberg has also created the trio Entangled phrases and made two pieces for the dance company Cullberg. She has an ongoing collaboration with sound artist Dehendrik Lechat Willekens and has made the film, La mano que canta, in collaboration with visual artist Alex Reynolds.

Workshop:

During the workshop, we will work on connecting sounds, with movements, with rhythm. The intention is to connect dance with music intimately; believing that the magic occurring when making dance is equivalent to that of music, without halting the creation of dance.

Andros Zins-Browne: Workshop

Andros Zins-Browne and Will Rawls © Martha Joseph

Andros Zins-Browne (b. 1981, New York City) is an artist working at the intersection of performance and dance. His work extends choreographic notions to interact with dancers, non-dancers, singers, objects, and texts. Central to these pursuits is the exploration of the body as both material and immaterial, a site of exchange between embodied images and somatic experience. His works include Already Unmade—an unmaking of his own choreographic archive— at the ICA, London; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai; and Fondation Galeries Lafayette, Paris. Over the past several years, he also created remixes of existing works: Jérôme Bel, 1995 (commissioned by e-Flux and KADIST Foundation); See-Saw by choreographer Simone Forti (the Museum of Modern Art, New York); and The Tony Cokes Remixes (10th Berlin Biennial). In collaboration with artist Karthik Pandian, Atlas Unlimited, a series of exhibitions weaving together stories of migratory movement, destruction, and re-construction through sculpture and vocal performance was  featured at the PERFORMA19 Performance Biennial, New York. In 2021/22, his work was commissioned by Danspace Project and Triple Canopy in New York and The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Zins-Browne is the recipient of grants and awards from the Goethe Institute, the Flemish Cultural Ministry, NYSCA, and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.

Workshops: Feeeeeedings

Following Feeds (Weld Dance Company, 2018) I’d like to continue to explore the potentials of social media as a format for expression, communication, and embodiment.  Questions such as what is a meme, what is going viral, and what a  bug is in real, lived space continues to fascinate me.  By imagining a gathering where we communicate non-verbally through short format song, choreography and other bodily expressions that may be imitated in infinite variations, shouted into the void to no effect, or recovered from an archive with both the shortest and longest shelf-lives, I want to propose a new zone of social interaction.  A kind of chat room where nothing makes sense and everything is, even if for a micro-second, important.  This workshop is open to anyone with experience and/or interest in voice and movement.  You do not need technical prowess, but anyone who is willing to take being a weirdo seriously for a few hours a day, for one week is warmly invited to attend.  Together we will develop a language and structure to perform this practice at the end of the week to a public.  While there is some flexibility, attendance for all sessions is encouraged.

Tickets for all events Andros is taking part of during the week can be found here below:

The evenings during the festival consist of a practice presentation followed by a concert. First, you will have the opportunity to meet two artists in newly commissioned reflections on their creation, in a mix of doing and describing. We invited voices from the choreography field to uniquely describe their creation with a duration of 40min. Each evening offers two new perspectives. We end the evening with a concert, offering a space for contemplation and reflection after the day’s workshops, talks and practice presentations.   

Thursday 16th of June

Practice presentations: BamBam Frost & Liz Kinoshita

Contemplative concert: Eli Keszler (US)

Practice presentation: BamBam Frost

Inspired by Octavia Butler, BamBam works with the mantra ”The only lasting truth is Change” in everything she does. She will continue to follow this mantra, which of course means that this description may be passé on the day of the presentation. However! The plan for the presentation is to practice her repetitive, slowly transforming, and associative dance practices, while she is constantly describing what she is doing. That is in itself, of course, a new practice, so we’ll see how it turns out. What you can expect, however, is a live exploration of where BamBam’s practice has the potential to take her and the viewer, as she presents it in this particular context.

Practice presentation: ‘favourite things’ by Liz Kinoshita

For me, surprises can be the most energizing thing.  I think witnessing someone pivot can be inspiring.  I really respect anyone who can choreograph or perform in such a way that they can share a deviation with the audience, their fellow collaborators, themselves.  The most delicious experiences I have had in dance have come at times when I have practiced very hard at creating something and finally a new version of this practiced thing comes out, whether it’s a disruption from a score or just the clearest version of a delivery on stage.  I feel this is easier to do when there is musicality involved.  Therefore, I like to practice using musicality as a tool.  I feel it can help build a relation between audiences and performers, can help to make physical proposals more transparent, more easily read or felt, more easily shared.  In this practice presentation I would like to share a few of my favourite things, short choreographic proposals I’ve created and/or performed that I feel are generous toward an audience, lined up and then unpacked, taking a closer look at their history and what they hope to offer.

Eli Keszler (US)

New York-based percussionist and composer Eli Keszler’s most recent album “Icons” was released in 2021: an immersive work in perpetual motion, evoking a glorious and dystopian Western world. It is a latticework of melodic percussion, drum set, and electro-acoustic instrumentation, built upon fragments of American abstraction, ancient scales, industrial percussion, and jazz-age film noir to achieve its feeling of imperial decay. Keszler’s instrumental performances are framed by panoramic recordings of New York City and the Odyssey Cave, along with other on-location audio from his global travels, making an expansive music that takes on hyperreal forms difficult to describe outside of the loss and wonderment that define our age. 

Keszler’s music, installations, and visual work have appeared at the Whitney Museum, Lincoln Center, MIT List Center, 67 Ludlow, Victoria & Albert Museum, Sculpture Center, The Kitchen, South London Gallery, Hessel Museum, Harvard’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Luma-Foundation, Barbican-St. Lukes, Walker Art Center, LAX Art, and MoMA PS1. He has released solo records for Shelter Press, Empty Editions, ESP-DISK’, PAN and REL Records. As a composer, Keszler’s commissions include the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, ICE Ensemble, Brooklyn String Orchestra and So Percussion. Keszler has collaborated with Oneohtrix Point Never, Laurel Halo, Kevin Beasley, Rashad Becker, Laure Prouvost, and David Grubbs among others.

Practice presentation: Alma Söderberg

The one trick pony. In my practice presentation, I’d like to think further about tricks, and specifically about the trick(s) I use in my practice – of doing a sound and a move simultaneously. This simple procedure has kept me going for the last ten years, and I’d like to try to take the opportunity of this lecture-performance to take a closer look at it.

Canilla (NO/DE)

Berlin-based Canilla is a newly sculpted project by Norwegian sound artist and instrument builder Camilla Vatne Barratt-Due. Frequently composing for dance and theatre productions, she develops sonic fields that often include electronics and live-coded synthesis merged with materials from an extensive accordion collection. Canilla’s performative installations have been presented in museums and theatres as well as sound-art, dance and music festivals in Germany, Denmark, Spain, Sweden, UK and Norway. She was recently chosen for SHAPE 21 – a European platform for innovative music and audiovisual art.

The songs from her 2021 debut album are thought of as conceptual love ballads stemming from trees of a wounded forest, originally coming out of an installation made for Kontakte Festival at Akademie der Künste in 2019. Behind the stories pumps a mechanical heart, a structure based on creations of dismantled accordions. Canilla works between installation and performance art, turning traditional analog material such as old tools and accordions into altered mechanical systems played with code. This layering of practices gives electronic music a new physical body tracing the remnants of the past, providing an afterlife to these mechanical objects. 

Camilla Vatne Barratt-Due has collaborated with a wide range of artists stemming from live coding, contemporary music, theatre and dance productions, such as Jo Grys, Peter Cusack, Alexandra Cardenas and Ingri Fiksdal. Her work has been presented at venues such as Akademie Der Künste, Radial System and HAU in Berlin; Black Box Theatre in Oslo, London Royal Operahouse, Bergen International Festival and Stamsund International Theatre Festival.

Sharing session by Samlingen and Panel: The Water

This panel conversation evolves around water practices.

 

Participants for Samlingen: Amanda Apetrea and Zoë Poluch.

Panel moderator: Tove Salmgren

Panel: Yared Tilahun Cederlund, Pontus Petersson and more TBC

 

Samlingen:

Samlingen is a choreographic project where a common interest in choreography and feminism intertwine with the history of dance. Samlingen includes Amanda Apetrea, Nadja Hjorton, Halla Ólafsdóttir, Stina Nyberg and Zoë Poluch.

Samlingen changes from place to place, in a unique collaboration between the dance artists and the attending audience. The group was created out of a deep interest in collective work, and the performances created by Samlingen are always jointly signed,  not by individual members. This is because we want to move away from the classic hierarchical patterns of power within dance, and strive towards other community models.

Sharing session:

For Within Practice 2022, Amanda and Zoë will open up a space for Samlingen’s practices, and through them relate to the festival’s different themes.

trompoppies:blackmilk: tiran willemse

© Carla Schleiffer

trompoppies:blackmilk is the first part of a trilogy titled trompoppies. Trompoppies is Afrikaans and describes drum majorettes performing a formation dance in uniform. blackmilk examines one of the choreographic elements of these dances: the precise hand gestures. By merging trompoppies movements with the melodramatic gestures of divas and the gestures associated with black male rap stars, the choreography investigates the distance between African and African American male identity. blackmilk invites a performative dimension into cultural representation of black masculinity and opens it up to a different complexity and sensitivity, which the artist describes as black male melancholia.

tiran willemse is an artist, born in South-Africa, situated between Berlin and Zurich. His performance based practice explores the body inside an unimaginable environment. Using physical depth to create sonic images that deal with the construction of systems, creating experiences that communicate somatic and psychological landscapes beyond the human condition. He has worked and collaborated with Eszter Salamon, Jerome Bel, Trajal Harrell, Meg Stuart, Ligia Lewis, Andros Zins-Browne, Alex baczynski Jenkens, Dorotha Gaweda and Egle Kulbokaite (Young girl reading group), Price (Mathias Rinngenberg) and with Cullberg ballet under Deborah Hay and Jeftha Van Dinther.

Closing party together with Lustholmen: bas bleau (DJ), Golin (live), Oli XL (DJ)

We are ending the festivals Within Practice + Lustholmen with a celebratory bang – an end of festival party on the island, at the boat M/S Segelkronan. Anrikningsverket has curated the music program.

Lineup

bas bleau (DJ)

Golin (live)

Oli XL (DJ)

Oli XL

After slowly becoming a key voice in the leftfield club sphere and appearing in compilations on leading experimental music outfits PAN and Posh Isolation, Oli XL vastly expanded the world of his already distinguished sound with the critically acclaimed debut album “Rogue Intruder, Soul Enhancer”, released in 2019 on Stockholm record label Year0001. With a dissected free-hand approach to the rhythms of the UK rave continuum, he pairs fragmented sampling techniques with personal field recordings & processed vocals—resulting in a bizarre but emotionally rich musical universe recalling the playfulness of Basement Jaxx as much as humourless glitch.

Following a small set of vocal-driven live shows diving deeper into the album’s pop sensibility, Oli has as the first-ever Swedish artist spent the last year carefully crafting a new collection of music for the seminal Warp Records.

Golin

Golin is an Amsterdam-based, Japanese-American artist, singer, producer, classically-trained pianist and performance artist. Passionate and oddly baroque in its digital zeitgeist, Golin’s work blurs the lines between mainstream pop and experimental electronic music Her unique perspective informs her approach to music, mediating contemporary experiences of cultural and physical displacement, taking the form of euphoric J-pop hallucinations.

Golin first appeared with the self-produced debut EP ‘Momo’ in 2017, continued in 2018 by ‘Fushigi’, a collaborative EP with Belgian producer Buga released on Shanghai’s Genome 6.66 Mbp. Following a two-year residency at Brussels cultural house Beursschouwburg and a year as part of the European SHAPE network’s platform, the CalArts-trained dancer’s most recent EP ‘Crush’ was released in October 2020.

bas bleau

bas bleau is a Stockholm-based producer, composer and DJ. In 2021 she released the debut EP ”SOMA” via London imprint Cherche Encore, along with experimental mixes for Threads Radio, RTM and TUKIO among others. bas bleau’s music is characterised by liquid rhythms and wet melodies, fluidly moving between dark wobbly bass, dynamic percussion and shiny textures, in sharp and playful tension.
