Chain invitations // double solo mirror 2020
We continue with the series the double solo mirror residency during 2020. This time we have asked the previous guests Aitana Cordero (ESP/NL) and Sonya Lindfors (FIN) to recommend choreographers and dancers to invite for this year’s edition of this residency.
As initiators of this project we, Kajsa Wadhia and Tove Salmgren, will also participate in this residency series. Due to Covid-19, our artistic exchange will take place digitally from our homes in May. The public showing of our residency will not happen at Köttinspektionen, but the exchange will be part of a publication that is being created in parallel with this two-year project. We plan to release the publication during spring 2021.
Paz Rojo (ESP) and Esete Sutinen (FIN) are invited to have residencies in November, and they will each invite a guest to their residency.
The public events will happen in the end of each residency. More information about each event will be uploaded closer to these events in November 2020.
the double solo mirror residency
the double solo mirror residency has been developed following a desire to create spaces with structured support for open ended processes without conditioning the artistic outcome. It is a curatorial concept facilitating new formats for artistic exchange and reflection in relation to choreographic solo practices. The project takes place as a series of double residencies where one invited solo artist is asked to invite another solo artist to join the residency.
The residency is centered around what ”Performative Feedback” could be, with the specific question ”How can two solo practices reflect each other through performance rather than talking, as a way to feedback?” The residency allows for an experimental atmosphere and process that brings value to the work of reflexion itself, rather than the result. The period ends with a public sharing of the process with the two artists, followed by a discussion.
For the 2019 double solo residencies, the artists Jamila Johnson-Small/Last Yearz Interesting Negro (GB), Rowdy Superstar (GB), Sonja Jokiniemi (FIN), Aitana Cordero (ESP/NL), Rani Nair (SWE) and Sonya Lindfors (FIN) was invited.
The serie, which takes place during a two year period (2019-2020), is structured through chain invitations, a way to broaden our network and to give the invited artists a possibility to meet other artists and practices they have been curious about and would like to get to know closer.
