A year-long, site-specific performance series created by Tedi Tafel


we enter this wintery space and are stilled
a time of no time, of shadow, hibernation, dream and memory
life is underground, slowed right down
images emerge out of the cold, at times only barely perceptible and light reaches through the darkness

(Tedi Tafel)

This collaborative performance takes the form of a moving installation blending dance, sound, light and video projections. The work will be shown for 3 hours. The public is invited to come and go as they please and to move around the space as they wish. Admission is free.

Ongoing thoughts by Calendar collaborators


minimal – black and white
white as the crystallized surface
black as the life that lies dormant underground, waiting
the space is big and it’s cold – a factory
rich with history, old materials, and years worth of dust
presentations last three hours
this collaboration with i8u is obvious;
for her sombre sounds, her attraction to the minimal and her sensitivity to place.

(Monique Jean, sound)
