Asymmetrier
Koreografi, dans och performance
Medverkande konstnärer: Eleanor Bauer, Anna Pehrsson, KAI-EN

I Asymmetrier undersöks det instabila och sönderfallande som öppningar mot något
främmande. Genom kroppsliga processer närmas en gräns där subjektet osäkras,
form luckras upp och rummet övergår i ett landskap genomkorsat av intensiteter.
Asymmetrier berör kroppslighetens öppning mot synliga och osynliga lager: percep-
tionens sammanflätningar av tanke och kropp, språk och sinnlighet.

I Asymmetrier visas tre soloverk. Kvällen är fjärde delen i en serie med koreografi,
dans och performance som arrangeras av KAI-EN och Kajsa Sandström på Fylkingen.

Konturer, vittringar

En kropp utkarvad ur en kropp. Ett skulpturalt rum som veckas och vecklas ut över
tid. Ett landskap skulpteras fram ur detaljernas inneboende och obändiga vilja. En
process som gröper ur, luckrar upp, faller sönder. Fram träder en ny kontur, en annan
verklighet.

A lot of moving parts

In A lot of moving parts, choreographer Eleanor Bauer prods at the Greek etymolo-
gy of her own discipline: khoreía “dancing together" and graphia "writing" to un-
derstand the place of writing in the embodied, social, and oral practices and tradi-
tions of dance-making. Working with the frictions, collisions, translations, love affairs
and gaps between dancing and writing in a choreographic search for “simple con-
tainers in which the complexity of dance may thrive,” Bauer has been toggling be-
tween dancing and writing practices in search for the ways that these two media of
thought can serve each other best, producing various texts, videos, scores, and
structures for dancing along the way. As a malleable framework for for this ongoing
inquiry concerning the relationship between writing and dancing, A lot of moving
parts is a flexible container, evolving over time, and uniquely assembled for each
performance.

Practicing Crisp. Come Now we Falling

Crisp. Come Now we Falling opens up the relationship between pressure and release in
spatial, temporal, physical and affective terms. The solo thinks falling through differ-
ent combinations of muscular pressure and release where the tipping point between
them-suspension-and its relation to scale, gravity, balance and breath becomes
movement. This in turn generates dynamics, form, volume, vibration, intensity and
accent as byproducts, studied through each other.

Crisp. Come Now we Falling displaces the idea of “balance” and “balanced” to an
unstable, ambiguous body in multiple directions. Attuned with small and conse-
quential differences, the dancing body falls and tips, diffracting like waves that over-
lap and combine, bending and spreading out to continuously begin anew. Here,
SHE is reconstituted a boiling point, neither here, nor there.

Choreography and dance: Anna Pehrsson

Practicing Crisp. Come Now we Falling is a studioversion of Crisp. Come now we
Falling that premiered in 2019 at the House of Dance, Stockholm.

Eleanor Bauer is a choreographer and performer working at the intersections of
dance, writing, and music. Her work is rooted in a synthesis of embodied intelli-
gences in her practice of making sense with the senses in performance. From solos
to talk shows to large ensemble pieces, her versatile works range in scale, media,
and genre, traversing categories of performance with wit, humor, and aplomb, and
have toured internationally to critical acclaim. Bauer has worked as a performer with,
among others, Matthew Barney, Trisha Brown, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker/Rosas,
Xavier Le Roy, Boris Charmatz, David Zambrano, Every Ocean Hughes, The Knife,
and Ictus contemporary music ensemble. Bauer has been commissioned as a chore-
ographer by Cullberg (Stockholm), Schauspielhaus Bochum, Corpus (Copenhagen),
and Nora (London), among others. Bauer created her own performances via Good-
Move vzw, a production structure she initiated in Brussels from 2007-2020, and was
artist in residence at Kaaitheater in Brussels from 2013-2016. Originally from Santa
Fe, New Mexico, Bauer holds a BFA in Dance from New York University, is a gradua-
te of the Research Cycle at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, and is currently based in Stockholm
where she is a PhD candidate in Choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts.

Anna Pehrsson, born in Boliden, Sweden, is a dancer and choreographer working in
the intersection of dance, choreography and visual arts. She danced with Alias
Compagnie, Corpus DKT, and Cullberg Ballet, and has since the choreographic de-
but in 2016, created a wide-range of works including commissions - solo -, and
group pieces - outdoors, for the gallery space, as well as for the stage. Pehrsson is
an associate artist of Weld W2, Stockholm and MARC, Knislinge. Her pieces are
shown at Bonniers Artgallery, Tjörnedala Artgallery, Uppsala Artmuseum, Weld, The
House of Dance, and MDT amongst others. Pehrsson’s artistic endeavour is charac-
terised by a thorough research into the prerequisites of movement and the dancing
body, often supported by drawing and/or printing practices. Her work seeks to con-
tribute to a feministic ecology - a female gaze in accordance with its
environment. Pehrsson often develops her work in series, and the most current cy-
cle, initiated with the solo Crisp. Come Now we Falling (2020), and the group piece
Pressure Fields (2021), supported by Riksteatern/The Swedish National Touring
Company’s Production Residency 2021, interrogates movements forced onto bodies
in times of systemic collapse.

KAI-EN är butohdansare och koreograf. Hon intresserar sig för hur djupgående
kroppsliga processer och erfarenheter kommuniceras genom den förhöjda situation
som konsten erbjuder. Tillstånd av receptivitet, uppluckring och porositet är åter-
kommande i hennes arbete, liksom relationer mellan kropp, konst och rit. Butoh er-
bjuder en intimitet mellan kropp och material, en receptivitet gentemot organiska
processer och icke-mänskligt liv.

Butoh förmedlas från kropp till kropp. KAI-EN studerade för koreografen och butoh-
konstnären SU-EN. Namnet KAI-EN visar på den levande länken till SU-ENs metod
och kropp. SU-ENs butohmetod är en vidareutveckling av Tomoe Shizune/Ashikawas
metod i gruppen Hakutobo. Yoko Ashikawa är en legendarisk butohdansare som ar-
betade nära en av butohns grundare Tatsumi Hijikata under ca 20 år. Det finns en
levande länk från Hijikata/Ashikawa/SU-EN/KAI-EN genom en intensiv kroppslig
överföring.

Sedan 2011 producerar hon verk genom KAI-EN Butoh Company. Hennes arbete
har visats på scener och gallerier i runtom i Sverige, samt i Japan och Hong Kong.
Verk i urval: Stone Breath (2021 delat upphov med Björn Ola Lind, film och Alexan-
dra Nilsson, musik), Lineage – rottrådar (2021), Porous (2018), Tangled (2017), In the
Dreamer´s Garden (2015).
