“The sky has not fallen, yet”: multimedia research performance – Work in Progress

A group of women live in this place. A place in between. Inside the city but also outside of it. It exists between reality and fantasy, between dystopia and utopia.

The performance “The sky has not fallen, yet” is a work in progress and is part of the larger artistic research “Bodies of Chthulucene”.

It is a multi-media kinetic performance that addresses the notion of femininity as space. The stages of the research project focus on the perceptual spaces that female bodies can create together, constructing ephemeral heterotopias. The performance combines video installation with live sound and movement composition.

The theoretical research is concerned with current contemporary social and material challenges and their relation to gender. Central to the exploration is a multi-species approach to ecolegalism based on Donna Haraway’s concept of the Chthulucene, a concept that aims to create a new narrative for a more egalitarian interaction of species.
