“STRUCTURES” A site-specific performance
A duo by and with;
Mille Engberg Lundt (contortionist & performer) and
Deborah Lennie (musician & performer)
“People come from different places, inhabit different bodies, have different experiences, are situated differently in power structures and have different boundaries. Take this into account, challenge your own position and let it be challenged, while respecting other people’s boundaries”. (Performing Art Forum, France)
This site-specific propose a performance where sound, landscape and movement merge together into one.
Evoked by improvisation process the performance relates to the site’s environment and creates visual and sonore imaginative compositions. The performance can either be improvised directly on the site or be prepared during a 1 or 2 days residency.
The performance relates to the structure of the architecture on the site. It question’s the boundaries between the architecture and body. The body and architecture merge sometimes into one landscape or stands out as opposite individuals. The performance breaks with the norms and opens up for new ways of inhabiting a space.
Performer, contortionist and choreographer, Mille Lundt, creates out of a necessity to communicate towards the audience which gives her the potential to find unique movements. She inhabits a specific space using her body language to evoke integrity. The body she presents is the anchor of anecdotes and functions as the silent storyteller set in an urban space, an indoor atypical space or in nature.
The soundscape That Deborah Lennie creates explores the borderlines of music and sound design between vocal, text, live electronic’s and piano. She uses harmony and melody to emphasize the visual.
This project is part of the residency programme "Performative Landscapes" in Copenhagen 2020 organised by Metropolis.
