Carima Neusser presents her performance in Cairo at Studio Emad Eldin within the frame of project Local Role Models.
LOCAL ROLE MODELS:
In times when freedom is continuously shrinking, it is easy for the population to fall into apathy and cynicism. Over time, the people gradually believe that the oppressors are right and it becomes increasingly difficult to imagine a future for oneself. This negative outlook on oneself, one’s life and reality makes it easier for oppressive powers to quench movements that wants to inspire democracy, freedom of speech and human rights. It makes it harder for women to find leverage, to stand up against men who want to control them. What is needed is hope (P. Levi, 1984). “Local Role Models” inspire women in three MENA countries to seek new motivation based on positive examples from their own culture and communities – to turn around negative thinking patterns without losing criticality.
In “Local Role Models” performances and workshops will become catalysts to spread positive ideas, stories and unique life journeys from the region. The collective work methods ensure that local narratives survive and thrive. The artists’ creative interpretations of the narratives further strengthen their individual potential and spreads them in the local communities where they originate.
Performance by and with Carima Neusser and Marina Neusser.

Nordic Art Lab is a project in which Nordic Culture Point invites artists to work on-site with various kinds of interdisciplinary projects at their premises in Suomenlinna
During the first Nordic Art Lab, an interdisciplinary group of artists will work to create the piece “Sensing Landmarks” over a two-week period. The three artists are Carima Neusser (Sweden), John Andrew Wilhite-Hannisdal (Norway), and Carola Uehlken (Germany).
The piece “Sensing Landmarks” brings together dance, visual art, architecture, music, and poetry with the aim of creating a guided tour that is specific to Suomenlinna’s nature, architecture, and history. During their residency, the artists will develop texts and scripts, choreography, music, videos, and scenography to guide the audience through an interdisciplinary experience with an emphasis on the senses. The work will be an opportunity to find new perspectives on Suomenlinna’s unique architecture and history in a creative and innovative way. The group will also invite people to participate in the creative process who have specific knowledge about or who feel a sense of love for the place. The work process is thoroughly transparent, with ample scope for improvisation.
At the end of the residency period, the public will be invited to participate in one of two guided tours organised by the artist group in Suomenlinna on Friday 8 October and Saturday 9 October 2021.
8 October at 7.00 pm
9 October at 7.00 pm
Registration beforehand! Maximum 25 people.
Starting point: Suomenlinna Tourist Information Office, C1 (Close to the main pier)
Sensing Landmarks forms a part of the project “Baroque Architecture and Submission” that is developed by Vision Forum in collaboration with various partners including Morgondagens konstpublik and is supported by the Nordic Culture Fund.
Swedish choreographer Carima Neusser has been in residence at Uferstudios during the month of August. She has been developing a series of tableaus based on a baroque poem “Schaubühne des Todes” from the 17th century poet Christian von Hoffmannswaldau.

For the presentation she will present a series of short scenes with two dancers along with live music and readings of the poem.

A GUIDED TOUR PERFORMANCE AT SOLO MARKT IN BERLIN
Carima Neusser and the artist and curator Carola Uehlken are staging a still life performance that is inspired by a guided tour into the underworld as described in the famous baroque poem “Schaubühne des Todes” from the 17th century. Living and dead material merge into a Tableau Vivant. Bodies lie and move in and around a shabby car near the busy market scene selling fruit and vegetables. The audience is invited to witness the various physical processes between life and death while picnicking.

Value as Process – Workshops on the Human Microbiota, Östersund 17-20/6/2021
For the Östersund workshop we will collectively take a closer look at the value of microbes and the value of studying microbes. What makes them valuable to us? What can microbes teach us about value? Can they shape what we value?
We all use value judgements in our everyday, for instance when we decide what to buy and what to eat. We all have our likes and dislikes, things we are drawn to and think are important in life. It does not seem, when asked, as if we have any trouble identifying what is “really valuable” to us. But when we try to explain what value really is, we run into trouble. Philosophers have been trying to explain what value is for thousands of years and the study of value actually has its own philosophical field, called axiology.
Interdisciplinary work brings different value systems into dialogue and microbes teach us to look at how things change over time. So where axiology tries to define what value actually is, we propose that we look at value as process. What happens when different values meet? How do they transform each other?
By approaching value this way, we want to inspire new ideas and new solutions rather than creating polarisation and discussions about opposing value systems. We hope that diverging opinions and and life choices can coexist within the platforms that we offer for exchange.

During the workshop they do collective and individual research using the poems to develop individual guided tours for each other in their respective city that they present virtually on the last day of the workshop. The place for where the guided tour takes place is free of choice.
Participants: Sara Gurevitsch, John Andrew Wilhite-Hannisdal, Carola Uehlken, Nicolas von Passavant and Carima Neusser
Carima Neusser has received a travel grant from The Swedish Arts Grants Committee to develop the new project The Architecture of Dreams (working title) together with the architect and VR-specialist Isa Pasqualini.Together they conduct a seven day study in a VR lab in Zurich with the goal of developing an artistic VR-project.
Carima Neusser will perform her solo piece Sculptural Spaces at Igreja do Espírito Santo in Caldas de Rainha in Portugal. Neusser’s current research project stems from a curiosity in architecture in relation to performance and the body as an architectural landscape. The work is based on ongoing spatial investigations where Carima Neusser brings together movement, stage lights, water, glass, jewelry and video to create performative sculptures. It is in the field of tension, in the meeting between these different elements that her choreographic exploration lies. She is interested in seeing how these materials refracts light and how it creates reflections in the space and thus creates new rooms. Due to Covid-19 restrictions there is a limited number of places available. To secure a seat, please contact Nayara Siler on nayarasiler [at] gmail.com.
