we are certain now that it is the beginning of a new era. we are in it.
but what’s coming? a time of unifying diversity? a time of the ego?
where will it all start? here? who will be responsible? us?
what will it take for it to turn out well? this?
For the third time, Max Gadow and Sven Björn Popp of virtuellestheater invite you to take part in VÖLUSPÁ LOCATION ANALYSIS.
Based on the cosmogenic opening part of the Edda (the famous Norse book of myths), their nomadic performance installation investigates the atmosphere and the potential of selected locations.
After analysing Ballhaus Ost in Berlin and the Hallo-Festspiele in Hamburg in 2016, they now continue with the Kunsthaus ACUD. Joining forces with London based artist Elizabeth Prentis, whose practice explores sculpture and performance.
They will transform the ACUD gallery into their new temporary camping site. Here they will collect, discuss, sing, read, build, destroy, eat and dance in the space.
Together with a variety of guests, they will inspect the past and present, to try and cast an optimistic glance into the future.
