FEELINGS OF TRANSFORMATION: A WORKSHOP FOR QUEER/TRANS*PEOPLE
Date: 6–7 March, 11am–3pm
Location: UKS, Keysers gate 1
Registration: The event requires registration. Read more below.
The ‘Feelings of Transformation’ workshop uses aspects from performance artist Jules Fischer’s artistic practice, in which mash-ups, loops and ambiguous compositions are central. This workshop experiments with healing through expression and movement, departing from the large-scale performance VANITAS. Using select emotions and archetypes, performers will work together to find concrete movements, actions and compositions that examine transformation. The movements are individual and there is no demand for transparency or explanation. Throughout the workshop we will build a vocabulary of short loops which we will test collectively on the last day of the workshop to the soundtrack of a live-mixed audio collage.
JULES FISCHER (b. 1988, DK) lives and works in Copenhagen. Fischer is a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts with studies at the Danish School of Performing Arts, and Art and Social Practice at Portland State University, Oregon. Recent solo exhibitions and projects include VANITAS at Den Frie, Copenhagen (2022); the exhibition and performance The most beautiful part of your body is where it’s headed at Bikubenfonden, Copenhagen (2021) and Willumsens Museum, Frederikssund (2022). They choreographed Dryppende stof at the Glyptotek Copenhagen (2021).
