Enfoldments - stitching practices in times of ruptures

Submitted works developed during my Master of Fine Arts in Performance at the

Norwegian Theatre Academy - Østfold University College. Concluded Spring, 2020.

Enfoldments is a compilation of works composed by a performance-lecture, a film, an online interactive booklet, a photographed performance book, masks, costumes and performative objects. 

 

What if I use only one artistic material? Which kind of enfoldments would take place by insisting on only one material? The chosen material was flax. Or it was flax that chose itself ? 

 

Starting by sowing the seeds of flax I was interested in exploring how a long-durational relationship, practices and encounters with different seasons, processes with a plant, and how that would play a role in the creative process.

 

My Master's research inquires aspects of agency, environmental issues, traditional craft, modes of production, slow down processes, Covid19, ritualizations, practice-and-process-based, thinking through hands, disruptions and mendings, speculative narratives, collage and editing as layerism, embroideriy, interactivity, performative text - and possibly, other words amongst them: playfulness.

The MA dissertation is an online interactive booklet.

 

Investigating how a text can be performative, 

choreographed. Engaging with playfulness to integrate the dynamics of the present moment the reading occurs.

 

Wrapped in a universe of planting and growth, the booklet explores dramaturgically choreographed 

hybrid spatialities and temporalities a performative text can occupy.

 

Thinking through writing as dramaturgy.
