Please RSVP using the Eventbrite link above (limited capacity)
In the performance “Nosotrxs, Cuerpos de Agua (Part II)”, Jimena Croceri and Sarina Scheidegger explore the fluid conditions which are inherent in our bodies, the sea, the waves, and glaciers. Through a variety of sonics, movements, texts and objects, they engender a sense of physical interconnectedness with its surrounding. Enacted through repetition the performance demonstrates the potentiality of intersections across difference and connectedness, between closeness and distance, between an inside and an outside.
Scheidegger and Croceri took part in a one-month research residency at the Andreas Züst archive in Switzerland. Inspired by the writing of Astrida Neimanis, they investigated the fluidity of glaciers in relation to (hydro)feminism, water rights and hydro commons.
Sarina Scheidegger is an artist based in Basel, working in different collaborations. She received the “Swiss Performance Award” in 2012 as well as a the working grant of the city of Basel together with Ariane Koch in 2015. Her work was shown at Crisper (Bogota), Kunsthalle Basel (Basel), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin), IPA Performance festival (Istanbul) amongst others.

Aggregates is a performance trilogy presented at Raven Row in London, curated by Nora-Swantje Almes and Camille Schmid.
The series aims to fuse queer-feminist strategies and marginalised narratives with the pressing concern of environmental ecology. It urges new ways of thinking around intimacy, gendered identities, sexuality and postcolonial bodies, alongside climate change.
Water is never metaphoric, it is radically material. It occupies a prominent place in our imaginations and has an immense symbolic power. It is often looked to as a healing source. As a concept, water offers a new potential of thinking about bodily differences and the interconnectedness with its environment. Borrowing the shape-shifting quality of water, especially its ability to transition between different phases; transforming from solid to liquid to gas, Aggregates invites to think through the flows and connections of natural, social and cultural conditions.
