The City of Stockholm supports Morgondagens Konstpubliks project Are you Touched? initiated by choreographer Carima Neusser and visual artist Per Hüttner. The project brings together the myth of Sisyphus with contemporary research on interpersonal touch. Research shows that interpersonal touch is getting increasingly sparse in our everyday lives. This trend, in turn, creates social problems and pose a threat to human well-being. The current project brings together groups of young professional visual artists, choreographers, writers with practitioners in alternative medicine for a dozen workshops. Together they explore what artists from different genres can do together to make interpersonal contact more natural. They will also investigate how can artists find new ways to express themselves by working across genre boundaries by investigating human touch.

New Eyes at Rönnells in Stockholm on September 27 at 7pm (Entrance 100 sek). The performance is the outcome of a research trip in Mexico, the US and Brazil by choreographer Carima Neusser, visual artist Per Hüttner and composer Siri Jennefelt.
The performance includes newly composed music, choreography, slideshows, smells, tastings and videos. Inspiration is taken from from baroque churches, Mexican soap operas, research on bats, meetings with representatives of the Apache nation, street food and modernist Brazilian literature. The work is like the journey it describes: it that can not be understood rationally, but has to be experiences with all five senses – just as you cannot seize the magic of the night without allowing madness to enter your mind.
The artists synthesize an experience for the audience by extracting four moods or situations. Based on these, they create collages where different impression merge into new constellations. In each part, the artists start from impressions, feelings paradoxical and interconnected phenomena instead trying to recount what they experienced rationally.
The project is funded by Helge Ax:son Johnsons stiftelse, The City of Stockholm, The Swedish Arts Grants committee and the Swedish Arts Council.
The City of Stockholm supports the project Baroque Architecture and Submission in developing the performance and presenting it on three different venues in Stockholm City. The project is lead by Carima Neusser and includes collaborators from four European countries: Laura Oriol, Adriano Wilfert Jensen, Emilia Rota and Isabella Pasqualini, Siri Jennefelt and Mira Svanberg.
