a web occupies the space
vectors of vibrant colours cutting through the air.
the two performers exist within it, control and care for it
as weavers, technicians, communicators
in a constant sculptural process of building and unbuilding, coding and decoding.

WITH ECHOES FILLING UP THE ORBIT, BUT DAMAGED is the first live-performance in moa johansson and an*dre neely’s collaboration. Using fabrics, wearable tech, vocal and movement scores developed over the past three years, moa and an* navigate a joint-vocabulary, through different environments and states of proximity/distance.

moa and an* ask:
What becomes of the constant information-traffic we send back and forth?
Of the selves we create on-, and the dreams we share off-, line?
What shape do our layered relationships and interactions take?
What happens to them, when our physical bodies can no longer be sustained?
How do we map them and let them inhabit physical space?

 

An*dre Neely & Moa Johansson's joint-practice is rooted in a mutual interest for choreography and sculpture, and the politics/poetics of material and space. Their collaboration is sustained through approaching the materiality of distance, allowing its restrictions to become possibilities that define the form/content/aesthetic the work takes. Until now: a chain of on-going video-exchanges (currently 60), mixed-media online experiments, sculpture-gifts to each other, or a multi-platform open-source performance.

An* and Moa have shown earlier stages of their current research digitally with AXISWeb and in video format with Dirty Debuts (at Balhaus OST, in Berlin), were the recipients of Jerwood Arts' 1:1 Fund for their collaboration, and shortlisted for the Flanders Art Institute, A Fair New Idea Fund.
