This curated screening event presents 5 different screen works which came out of Nathalie S. Fari's PhD research (2018–2023) on the topic Situated Agencies: Mediating Places through the Body. Divided into three sections, the screening will be co-hosted by guests who will provide "performative responses" to each work. At the end of the second screening (19:30) there will be an artist-talk.

Hidden Choreographies
This short video (11:13 min) uses the audiovisual traces of a performance laboratory work, which was carried out at Götaplatsen in 2019, to compose so-called Hidden Choreographies through an editing process.

Performing / Documenting Through a Spatial Agency
This editing exercise (08:00 min), which was realised in the context of the performance documentation course in 2021, departs from a site-specific engagement with the former building of the Academy of Music and Drama.

Sektion 2 - Guest: Katxerê Medina

Paqueta's Resting Body or (Re)Tracing its Documentary Meaning
This video-essay (08:12 min) uses the framework of a “Zoom-Lecture” to stage a post-apocalyptic encounter with a small island on the Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Sektion 3 - Guest: Hannah Högstedt

Shoot – kameran, går
This experimental short film (11:05 min) gives an insight into the cinematographic process of the site-specific screen work I am the Camera, which came out of a performance laboratory carried out at Götaplatsen from 2022 to 2023.

I am the Camera
This short film (12:35 min) stages an absurd interview with the Hasselblad Camera that landed on the moon in 1969 and flipped for ever, humankind’s anthropocentric view of Earth.

Contributors of the screen works: Charlotta Ruth, Charlotta Grimfjord Cederblad, Kristin Rode & Lab #1 Participants: Marta Chaves de Melo, Moa M. Sahlin, Patricia Vane.
