Performance 'Insula' by Maarja Tõnisson & Dovydas Strimaitis at Park Longchamp, Manifesta 13 stage, Marseille

Author Echo Gone Wrong

Roots to Routes is pleased to invite you to the performance ‘Insula’, created by Estonian author and performer Maarja Tõnisson in collaboration with Lithuanian, Marseille-based dancer Dovydas Strimaitis.

Insula aims to dive into organic relations of space within and between bodies, where they meet complex identities, natures, movements, clothes and sounds. Transfiguring strangers are constantly defaced or obscured in dance. The space becomes a field of attention and the audience takes an active part in landscape dramaturgy. The bodies that we inhabit, made of seventy percent water, unstable materials and containers, are in constant shift. The fictional and natural merge into affective scenes to challenge the sense of physicality, belonging, the other and intimacy.

The performance is crafted together with:
Kadi Adrikorn / Adrikorn Artefacts, costume design and concept
Maarja Nuut & Ruum, music from their new album “World Inverted”
Claudia Lepik, jewelry
