Den 27. juni inviterer Copenhagen Contemporary til interaktiv performance i den schweiziske kunstner Claudia Comtes udstilling 'I Have Grown Taller from Standing with Trees'.

Denne performance er den anden ud af tre stedsspecifikke performances skabt særligt til udstillingen på CC i et samarbejde mellem den internationalt anerkendte koreograf Kiani del Valle, musiker Egon Elliut og Claudia Comte. Ved åbningen af 'I Have Grown Taller from Standing with Trees' dansede Kiani del Valle den første performance med titlen 'Act One' mellem installationens 45 kæmpetræstammer, hvor hendes bevægelser og Egon Elliuts musik fortolkede skovens dyr. Comte er interesseret i den måde, hvorpå vi kan fortolke ikke-menneskelig bevægelser som et forsøg på at forstå eller legemliggøre et andet væsen. I denne anden performance med titlen 'Act Two' bliver bevægelser af dyr i flok udforsket.

Nu har du en helt særlig mulighed for at blive en del af den anden performance 'Act Two' i 'I Have Grown Taller from Standing with Trees'. Her blødes grænserne op mellem publikum og performer, når gæster inviteres til at danse med. Inden performancen vil koreograf Kiani del Valle afholde en særlig workshop i udstillingen, hvor hun underviser i kropsligt at fortolke dyrs bevægelser gennem dans. Herefter performer workshoppens gæster sammen med Kiani del Valle i udstillingen, som er åben for publikum.

Alle er velkommen – både som deltager og tilskuer!

On 27 June, Copenhagen Contemporary invites you to attend a performance in the exhibition 'I Have Grown Taller from Standing with Trees' by the Swiss artist Claudia Comte.

This performance is the second of three site-specific performances created exclusively for the exhibition at CC in collaboration with the internationally acclaimed choreographer Kiani del Valle, the musician Egon Elliut, and Claudia Comte. At the opening of 'I Have Grown Taller from Standing with Trees', Kiani del Valle danced the first performance entitled 'Act One' amongst the forty-five giant tree trunks in the exhibition where her movements and Egon Elliut’s music sought to interpret the animals of the forest. Comte is interested in the way we might interpret nonhuman movement as an empathic attempt to grasp or embody another being. In the second performance 'Act Two' the movements of a collective or the herd will be explored.

On Thursday 27 June, there will be an opportunity to become part of 'Act Two', in 'I Have Grown Taller from Standing with Trees'. The boundaries between audience and performers become fluid when visitors are invited to join in the dancing. Before the performance, the choreographer Kiani del Valle will arrange a special workshop in the exhibition where she teaches bodily interpretation of the movements of wild animals through dance. After that, those attending the workshop will dance together with Kiani del Valle in the exhibition, which is open to the public.

Everyone is welcome – whether as participants or members of the audience!
