In this session we will move our perception. I’m interested in working with scores or tasks that form a point of departure, more than a specific point of arrival. Through playing with fiction, language, objects and sensations, the scores become ways to open the situation differently and re-sensitize the body through gaps, misapprehensions and disorientations. Together we will see what grows out of the scores, follow where they might take us, maybe drift away.
Gry Tingskog works with choreography together with dance, sculpture, technology and text, weaving together threads of performance and visual arts. Mostly in the dark. Their practice moves between making performances, performing, imagining collaborative formats for sharing practices, teaching and writing. In 2017 Gry co-initiated INSISTER SPACE, an artist-run organisation imagining choreographic methods to rethink and reorganise artistic work in practice. They were also part of founding höjden, a trans-disciplinary workspace for artists and cultural workers in Östberga, Stockholm. Gry is based between Stockholm and Gießen where they are currently graduating from the MA in Choreography and Performance. Since 2017, they hold a Bachelor degree in Dance Performance from DOCH/Stockholm University of the Arts.
