Meetings in the Varanger landscape - poetic choreography and conversation
Through the PRAXIS residency, Katarina will work with the body as a living personal form in relation to her project 'Meetings in the Varanger Landscape', but she will also work with tactility through the practice of weaving. She wants to feel with the perceptible and sensitive nature that arises in the meeting with a tradition that stems long back in the Sami culture, duoddji. In 2021, Katarina slowly started to learn Sami ribbon weaving with professor Jorunn Jernsletten who taught her to weave a simple ribbon originally used for sami shoes. Can this be taken up in an interaction with a movement practice in the studio? If so, in what way? The aim for the practice is to find a way to deal with landscape choreography from the perspective of weaving in a circle. Which can be both whole and broken pieces. The areas between the physical parts of the circle can give a sense of wholeness but also a sense of a liminal landscape in between. How can one as artists help to heal wounds from the past with new stories and make room for the healing of what was lost?
Katarina invites anyone who wish, to gather for approximately two hours, collective movement space.
There will be a movement practice led by Katarina, where we search with the poetic nature body we carry and are surrounded by, then we will speak and listen as we weave movements, sounds and perceptions together. Katarina will also bring something to drink and some snacks for a conversation and interaction with physical elements in the end.
Katarina Skår Lisa is a choreographer, performing artist and educator, and her focus lies in the artistic field of practise.Through artistic exploration and research, she looks at her own heritage as Norwegian, with Sea Sami roots from Varanger. The intertwined relationship between nature, culture, people, more-than-human realms and landscapes become Lisa's way of understanding how all life is connected.
Through indigenous perspectives and philosophies, Katarina works to see choreography as a natural tool in the decolonization process, both of our inner and outer, individual and common world and world understanding, but also of a specific cultural anchoring, understanding and appreciation. For Lisa, choreography has the ability to generate space for listening and sensing, where unity, dialogue and relationships are activated. Her ambition is to convey Sea Sami values and stories in one personal and inclusive way.
