Schwindelfrei Residency

24 June - 14 July 2024

 

Title: Schwindelfrei Residency with Darja Reznikova & Sade Mamedova

Venue/Location: Eintanzhaus Mannheim

Showings: 11 & 12 July 2024

Event description:

“Slava Ukraini!” (“Glory to Ukraine!”) has been Ukraine’s slogan since the beginning of the war. The intention behind this popular slogan is obvious, but what else does it stand for? 

In their planned production SLAVA  (“Glory” or the short version of the Russian name “Vyacheslav”), inspired by recent events of the Ukrainian-Russian conflict, Darja Reznikova and Sade Mamedova take up a current topic by placing their Ukrainian and Russian roots in relation to each other. 

Their approach of working together with two refugee artists from the conflicting countries and jointly addressing concepts such as war, hostility and information in a time of surveillance capitalism, characterised by propaganda and populism the residency is a starting point for an in depth research into the rather complicated thematic setting.

The following questions will be addressed: How is information disseminated and received nowadays and what can we call absolute truth? How does hostility arise and how do we function as a collective? When does patriotism become nationalism? Can we fight for glory?

The central question for the research is: What are the motives for hostility towards a fellow human being and how can we create more open, emphatic and profound encounters without prejudice?

Xe, Ze, Ve, E, Te, Sie, Thon, Tey, Ey, Per, Peh, Fae….
Language creates awareness and reinforces stereotypes, but what if the vocabulary is not enough to describe one’s identity? Woman, man, both or neither… It is difficult to describe in words what have long been realities. Gender queer, fluid, LGBTIQ+, the conservative division of roles based on biological sex is far outdated. However, do our language and togetherness follow this change?
What do words do to us and what influence does language have on gender orientation? How do we experience and perceive people in relation to the pronouns used? How do certain meanings of a word become established and what cultural, political and ethical influence do these have on us and our bodies?

Gender socialisation as a construct of society and the inexhaustible existence of each of us beyond the physical body form the central aspects that are the focus of this project. The dance installation in the rooms of the old Stromwerk and the interactive dance film deal with these themes in an trans-disciplinary and multimedia way.

Supported and funded by the Kulturamt Mannheim and our cooperation partners Inter-Actions Studio, Dance Professional Mannheim, Theater Felina-Areal, WF Fliesen and Nachmarkt am Stromwerk.

The project was partly created at the Inter-Actions Studio in Heidelberg. #StudioActions

Language creates awareness and reinforces stereotypes, but what if the words that exist are not enough to describe one’s identity? Male, female, both or neither… It is difficult to describe in depth what has long been the reality. Gender queer, fluid, LGBTIQ+, the conservative division of roles based on biological sex is far outdated. However, do our language and co-existence reflect this change?

What effect do words have on us and how does language influence one’s gender orientation? How do we experience and perceive people in relation to the pronouns used? How do certain meanings of a word become established and what cultural, political and ethical influence do these have on us and our bodies?

Gender socialisation as a construct of society and the inexhaustible existence of each of us beyond the physical body form the central aspects that are the focus of this project.
