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 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. // More Info

OLYMPHIA: TERMINATION OF THE WORLD'S LAST HARBOUR (PARADISO PT. 3)

Thu 01.06 to Sun 11.06 // EXHIBITION OPENING, AFTER PARTY // ACUD GALLERY
OLYMPHIA: TERMINATION OF THE WORLD'S LAST HARBOUR (PARADISO PT. 3)

Olymphia presents “Termination of the world’s last harbour”, Paradiso Pt. 3
 
EXHIBITION OPENING: 19H
AFTERPARTY: 22H
 
//
 
ABOUT
 
Artist duo EMDAL/RAHBEK (AKA Olymphia) explore narratives through physical dialogue, incorporating various measures including music, dance and live sculpting. Often working in a cross section between concert, theatre and performance, the duo challenges the idea of performance as a fixed time frame and often leaves a visual fingerprint that enables the narrative to continue its own life and dialogue with the site on which it takes place.
 
Paradiso is a series of performances and installations. This part will take place at ACUD gallery following a performance at State of Concept in Athens and an installation at Big Love in Tokyo.
 
Olymphia has also released music on Posh Isolation.

The exhibition opening will be followed by an afterparty featuring:
 
CROATIAN AMOR [posh isolation / LIVE]
VANITY PRODUCTIONS [posh isolation / LIVE]
YEN TOWERS [posh isolation / LIVE]
SARAH MILES [Berlin Community Radio]
ENTERTAINMENT [Total Black]
