Structures

Mille Lundt (DK)
A contemporary in-situ circus performance inspired by observations on French champagne making, vineyards, champagne cellars, workers and landscapes.

WORK IN PROGRESS: Structures is a part of the European Hand to hand circus and residency project, and was developed in an immersion residency in the vineyards of Joseph Perrier, house of Champagne, together with Le Palc, France.

A contemporary in-situ circus performance inspired by observations on French champagne making, vineyards, champagne cellars, workers and landscapes. “Structures” emerges as a living canvas, as the essence of a physical expression of circus bodies, nature and sound landscapes.

In “Structures”, Mille Lundt tests the boundaries between land and body, between sound and image and the blurring of the fine lines between what is real and unreal. A performative landscape, where body and sound sometimes merge into the landscape of a site, sometimes stand out as opposite individuals. A sound landscape emerges, comes closer to the ear. Champagne cellars, champagne worker’s routine of turning bottles and the harvesting of the vine, the making of champagne with nature in focus. An immersive ritual where the movement carries us into another dimension.

The performance invites you closer to the world of French champagne making, a battlefield of human industrial luxury products and ecology, while it opens for new ways of inhabiting a landscape.

How do we work with nature? When do we work against nature?

Duration: 40 min.

PLEASE NOTE: Meeting point is at Gummistranden at the playground

HAND TO HAND (2023-2025)

Hand to Hand is a European contemporary circus exploration in public space to collectively question the notion of social ecology.

The project is led by Le Palc, national circus centre in France, in partnership with Bússola in Portugal, Helsingør Teater in Denmark and Room 100 in Croatia.

For two and a half years, the project aims to explore the issue of sustainability through learning and experiential spaces of research for circus artists, especially emerging artists in their artistic practice in public space, to develop new capacities of initiating a transition, transforming artistic and methodological practices in public space for sustainability.

Mentors, researchers, private firms, cultural and creative industries actors, are involved in the whole process.

8 selected artists have followed a journey of four exploration times in the four countries and collaborated through immersion residencies with private firms such as Joseph Perrier, champagne house; Fila Arches, paper mill of art paper in France ; Ston Salt marshes in Croatia ; a maritime workshop for the renovation of wooden boats, Educations for boatbuilding and sailmaking and a professional fisherman in Denmark ; Codfish Harbor and the codfish packaging of Ílhavo, distant water fishing in Portugal.

During the four partners festivals, the artists will share their artistic prototypes with festival with audiences, as a work in progress collecting their experience from one activity sector in one country.

HAND TO HAND is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
