more Info

A research in progress around the concept of care beyond species. How does a stone perceive the world? How to approach this seemingly lifeless medium?

During our research with the 8 rather big granit stones, Ana Jordão and I realised that it is exactly their characteristics of being heavy, rough and hard that demand a very careful and almost tender handling.

A WIP Showing took place on 16th of December 2022 @ The Studio Holzmarkt 25. We are looking for a residency and venue for the premiere in autumn 2023.

Vertical Rope Duo

Award winning Duo with Charlotte de la Bretèque. Throughout the act Charlotte and Emma share the space on a vertical rope not without getting into each other’s way. As they climb over, hang from one another or pull into a planche or a handstand in the rope they keep teasing each other in a playful way. This act is about a friendship: About support and trust and about the small revenges, and the lightness of taking it all with a smile.

Knekke Greine

Site-specific performance of the ENTmanagement. “Stones awake and forest spirits make rope climbing art. With Knekke Greine, ’The North Mountain’ received enchanted life. In the performance the forest is alive in many ways. It gets dangerous and mysterious, as in children’s games and in folklore.” -Sundsvalls Tidning

Sea Clowns

The Sea Clowns are an open group of performers traveling by sailboat between the greek Islands, aiming to inspire and motivate others with circus, art and music.

Reseach: Instrumentalisierung

How can movement and sound be directly connected? And how does this connection become visible and tangible?

In a circus sound installation, the vertical rope circus apparatus literally becomes an instrument. Every movement in the rope creates sounds that are picked up by contact microphones and then manipulated using a synthesizer. The resulting new sounds should in turn serve as inspiration for the movement. This creates a spiral of mutual impulses.
