Our Physical Intentions by Anna-Lise Marie Dance

Our Physical Intentions by Anna-Lise Marie Dance

Our Physical Intentions explores the process of how our thoughts directly determine and influence our emotions. The piece unravels and reveals that by shifting our interpretation we can alter our emotional and physical state. Allow yourself to experience notions of a busy mind, thought and emotion isolation and an absolute ability to reach a present state.

Metallic Limbs by Sarah Louise Kristiansen

In my metallic limbs all sensations have gone.
And I wonder.
What happened?

Perhaps if I ask you to tell me about it, it will change?
Go on then.

Tell me.

A curious encounter between the performer, the viewer and an enchanting flower suitcase, in which chance and choice are to decide upon the outcome of the performance. A wonderful dialogue between the performer and the viewer leaving the audience captivated with a smile.

Exposed and vulnerable bodies seeking protection. Protection that suffocates. Now and always, here and everywhere.
Sculpture. Embroidery. Quilt.
