Pedersen & Stark, To The Bitter End

To the Bitter End is an intimate, two-person experience about the lifecycle of a relationship, from the first blush of love to the wrenching, messy end. Two sets of cards guide you through the story as you spark, nurture, and ultimately destroy a romance between two characters.

Pontus Pettersson, Bodies of Water

Bodies of Water is a three hour long choreographic installation and performance by the choreographer Pontus Pettersson. Departing from Russian activist Alexandra Kollontai’s texts on love and Aistrida Neimanis’ work with Hydrofeminism​, Bodies of Water is a generous proposal to aesthetically and sensorially lead the audience through an experience in which they perceive and discover new ways of relating to our physical and bodily surroundings.

Time Sept 26–27, 1–4 pm
Price Included in the admission. 
Tickets Write to ​pedagogik@wanaskonst.se​ ​with the time you wish to book.​ You will receive an email confirming your place has been booked. The maximum capacity for audience is 15 persons at any given time. Pre-bookings guarantee one hour in the performance installation and will be given priority. Drop-ins are welcome based on availability. 
Presented in collaboration with Milvus Artistic Research Center (MARC), with support from the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Swedish Arts Council and c.off.

Temporary Worlds

Temporary Worlds ties together two megatrends that have been creeping in over recent decades: interactiveness and building worlds. In such widely disparate areas as popular culture and gaming, postmodern literature, reality TV with viewer voting, experimental theater, digital and relational art, and interaction has gradually gained ground. Works that are not complete without the participants’ co-creation are now an accepted part of our everyday lives. [...]

The physical and social logic of place—both the concrete, e.g. that we are here at Wanås, and the temporary, e.g. that we are simultaneously represented within the installation—impact what we believe we could be, and what actions we can imagine are possible. The body becomes the interface for the work, as it always is to the world: it understands dance as a language when the brain’s neurons flash in time with the choreography we observe or share; it takes the place of the camera when we choose the direction of our gaze and position in Lundahl & Seitl’s Symphony, and of the author when, in Pedersen and Stark’s To the Bitter End, we look a stranger in the eyes and move ourselves to tears.

Even in the fictional situation, experience is real and meaningful. The visit to a temporary world reminds us that even the reality we find out here has been built by people, that it can be changed quickly, and that by examining alternate realities, we can learn to build a better shared world together.
