Dear artists, curators and art enthusiasts,
We are happy to invite you to our Open Studio with Lois Alexander:
Sat 17 September 22, 4-6 pm / live performance: 4:30pm
AiR Studio, Trackt A, 1st floor
Lois is a choreographer and dancer living in Berlin, Germany and our guest artist from July to September 2022, selected by Rote Fabrik jury. At the center of her artistic practice is dance, along with the body’s necessity to transform, refigure and embody pluralistic identities.
Yeye is a deep reckoning of a modern era that is entangled with colonial histories, mothers and the ocean. What are the temporalities of a racialized body, one that is marked by visible and invisible wounds? What can be healing? Yeye explores memory, traces and notions of a motherland, moving through different levels of video, text and performance.
The open studio will show excerpts of her research in the process of staging the work for a live dance performance.
Yeye will be presented in Sophiensaele Berlin in October 2022. More Info and tickets
