swan song ( upcoming production )
swan song is a death practice and a gesture of recreation performed by 10 dancers.
Here they look inwards and meet their pain bodies, where generational and transgenerational leftovers are prominent. Here they create a ritual of letting go, excavating space for new beginnings through their concrete corporeal and ghost bodies. The world created resembles a liminal dream-like space, where meanings are ambiguous and ever-evolving. Together they create a community who call ancestral spirit guides in the quest of healing.
swan song is a part of Annamari Keskinen's ongoing performance series Between the not yet and the already no more . By the end of 2022 the series include four works- sonic bile /Berlin 2022, masticate /Kassel 2022, between the not yet, the already no more- performance installation /Montreal 2022 and swan song/Budapest 2022.
