We are glad to welcome Nadja Voorham and Victoria Kaldan with project to Vitlycke-CPA!
The project was selected for production residency at Vitlycke-CPA through an open call on the beginning of 2023. This Open Call, organized by Vitlycke-CPA, was intended for new aspiring professional dancers, choreographers, stage artists and dance companies in Sweden who want to create a completely new or further develop a previous performance.
The residency will take place 3-16 April and end with a work in progress the 14th of April.
I Suck My Tongue in Remembrance of You is a project about the relation between automation and labour. It deals with the confusion that comes with simulating intimacy and care and questions the boundary between the performed and the “authentic”. The performers attempt to linger in the twilight zone between alive and un-dead.
I Suck My Tongue in Remembrance of You is a collaboration between Nadja Voorham and Victoria Kaldan.
With support of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
