BOOK NOW: via BILLETTO
TripSpace have teamed up with The Place and Aerowaves to bring you an evening of two solos by internationally touring dance artists, dealing in turn with the impact of the digital and migration on the body. Followed by a screening of “In London” by All We Can Do Is Dance, featuring London-based dance artists inhabiting the fast moving, ever changing landscape they call home.
The first in our series of 4 Trip the Light performances, as part of Intercontinental Drifts 2017: workshops and performances that move, mix and matter.
Mirjam Sögner | LARA
In LARA, Mirjam Sögner takes the uncanny movement patterns of early computer game characters as a starting point and translates them back onto her own body. Imitating the imitation, she creates a physical body seemingly trapped in the digital realm. As our digital and physical realities grow together, this solo offers a bodily response to our changing experience of the world.
Mirjam Sögner is an Austrian choreographer and performer based in Berlin. Her solo work LARA tours extensively throughout Europe since its selection for Aerowaves 2016. She received both a DanceWEB Scholarship as well as the START-Stipendium awarded by the Austrian Cultural Council. As a choreographer she has created work for Tanztage Berlin, Dschungel Wien and Kibbutzim College Tel Aviv, among others.
Choreography & performance: Mirjam Signer
Music: Andreas Völk
Light Design: Sandra Blatterer
LARA was part of the Aerowaves 2016 Platform (www.aerowaves.org)

Public in Private | Jasna L. Vinovrški | Staying Alive
A woman in a neat, official suit chews up legal jargon. Teetering on a pile of books, and dependent on her IPad, she creates fragile and precarious situations for herself. Staying Alive is a highly topical solo reflecting on order and control in migration. Subtle humour and multiple absurdities build as the performer gradually enters a state of emergency. As Walter Benjamin says, “the tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the 'state of emergency' in which we live is not the exception but the rule.”
Jasna L. Vinovrški is a performer, choreographer and teacher. She grew up in Zagreb and lives in Berlin. Together with creating her own work, she is dramaturg and choreographic assistant to Clément Layes, with whom she runs the company Public in Private. In 2016 her work Staying Alive was part of the Aerowaves priority list and was presented at Spring Forwards.
Idea, choreography & performance: Jasna L. Vinovrški
Collaborators: Mini I Pad, the books
Music: Bee Gees "Staying Alive"
In collaboration and through support of Hrvatski institut za pokret i ples- Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance.
This work was created within the larger project "Migrant Bodies", which was supported by the programme EU Culture 2007-2013.
All We Can Do Is Dance | In London
In London is a journey through the streets of the city. We discover nine dancers improvising in different places, sharing their mood, their dance, their personality and unveiling each time a facet of the city. It is an invitation to be carried away by the movement and to celebrate its spontaneity.
