D1984 at the Cable Factory, Helsinki

Carima Neusser participates in the Exhibition and Festival “2084” with her performance “D1984” on October 13th at 8pm.

The exhibition draws inspiration from the book “1984” by George Orwell. The fictitious subject matter of the book was forward-thinking, and in many ways, it has become reality; think of today’s use of surveillance cameras, algorithms and fake news. However, despite the dire tone of the story, notions of love and activism are also present as integral forms of power. “2084” that takes place in the present and speculates on the role power will play in the future. The exhibition doesn’t aim to provide answers, but it offers narratives on the various ways power is activated today and what could happen in the years to come.

2084 is curated by Stockholm-based curator Anne Klontz
Location: Cable Factory,  Valssaamo, Helsinki
Performance Tuesday, 13 October: 7 – 9 p.m.
7 p.m. 
The Power of Ontologies – Performance by Per Hüttner
8 p.m.
 D1984 – Performance by Carima Neusser

For her performance, Carima Neusser investigates the body and desire in relation to power. Extracting inspiration from the novel 1984, Neusser creates a choreography from the forbidden love affair between the characters in the story. From this relationship and the suppression of sexuality by the governing powers, love and romance surface to become a powerful form of activism.

The project is funded by The Swedish Arts Grants Committe, The Nordic Culture Point with support from Teater Reflex, Stockholm and Vision Forum.

       

 

Gold all in my Veins at Outokumpu Old Mine, Finland

Friday 18th of September at 9 pm / Free entrance

A MULTI SENSORIC GUIDED TOUR through the mines at Outokumpu Old Mine Residency with Sara Gurevitsch, Carima Neusser, Carola Uehlken & John Andrew Wilhite-Hannisdal.

The architecture at Outokumpu Old Mine is going to be the scenery for a guided tour connecting Baroque philosophy, history and spectacles to the tunnels, the earth and the surrounding area in Outokumpu. Introducing dance, poetry, music and food, we will drink glitter and gold and let it run through our veins. The womb of the mine connects to our bodies, our breath and our movements and leaves us in states of awe. We guide you through this interdisciplinary experience, through your senses and look forward to share our thoughts on the so called ‘ornamental kitsch period’ Baroque and test its actual capacities together.

The project is produced by Morgondagens Konstpublik (MKP) and Vision Forum and supported by OPSTART Nordic Culture Fund, The Swedish Arts Council and Nordic Culture Point

MEDITATIVE STRIPTEASE

Carima Neusser aka Sasha Diamond atTransformation II, an online festival for BCI, neuro-feedback and music on French radio p-node. Sunday May 3, 2020.

Meditative Striptease is a live collaboration between Carima Neusser and Per Hüttner. Per uses real time EEG (electroencephalogram – measurements of brain activity on the scalp) to make sounds. Carima uses EMG (electromyogram – measurements of muscle activity on the respiratory muscles) to make sounds. The performance is a sensory based striptease rather than one where the gaze is in focus of the experience and where the stripper plays with the role of being both the subject and the object. Sasha Diamond focus on different meditative breathing techniques throughout the hour while she strips and navigates the listener throughout a meditation for relaxation, lasciviousness and imagination.

Transversal Madness in Mexico City

Transversal Madness at F4 Libre in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

Welcome!

19.00 Transversal Madness at F4 Libre Espacio Cultural Multidisciplinario Nueva Tabachin 13, Col. Tlatenango, Cuernavaca, Mor. México.

Transversal Madness is a performance by and with Swedish choreographer Carima Neusser and visual artist Per Huttner. For the performances in Mexico they have invited the dancer Alcibiades Papacostas from Mexico to perform with them.

The work takes its inspiration from a painting by Swedish 19th century painter Carl Fredrik Hill and investigates different forms of insanity and how social and political ideas informs our understanding of the phenomena. The two artists find in Romantic art great tools to understand the current social and political climate and especially why right wing populist has such an appeal today. The performance invites the audience to enjoy music, film and dance in unusual and creative configurations in order to reflect on how desire can be re-considered to challenge their conception of the world.

The project is supported by the Swedish Arts Council and Helge Ax:son Johnsons stiftelse.

The Revolution Hub in Haiti

Carima Neusser is participating in the 6th Ghetto Biennale in Port-au-Prince November 30 – December 20, 2019. It is a collaborative effort called The Revolution Hub organized by Vision Forum. Within the framework of the project a group of European and Haitian artists carry out performative investigations and create artistic performances. The Revolution Hub is a place where artists bring ideas and where these can meet the local community and be moulded into performances. Together the participants will investigate the relationship between performance and revolutionary traditions. All revolutions have had a strong performative expressions and clearly defined aesthetics. Revolutionaries develop revolutionary music, visual art, choreographies and fashion to enthuse the people and impress its enemies. The Revolution Hub investigates how these traditions can be studied and used as platforms for new performances. It asks how revolutionary traditions can be used to create new artistic expressions practices that mould European and Haitian traditions into new mixes?

Carima Neusser and MKP in Cuiabá, Brazil.

Carima Neusser will do a series of workshops at MT Teatro de Escola in Cuiabá in Brazil organised by the pedagogical network MKP.The events take place November 25-27. The work focuses on investigating the relationship between contemporary performance practices and everyday actions. We draw inspiration from the history of performance and key figures like John Cage and Yoko Ono and merge them with ideas from choreographer Susan Rethorst as well as MKP’s previous work with investigations of sites. We investigate the boundaries of desire and what can be learned by bringing together experiences and knowledge from contemporary art, dance, theatre and music. The events are supported by the Swedish Arts Council.
