CARPA6 Colloquium on Artistic Research in Performing Arts


Solo Performance:

"Keep on Threading or: TITLE"



Keep on Threading or: a TITLE


"Keep on Threading or:  a TITLE" is a study and a site for cones of yarn and a human performer. Laying out yarn for six hours the performance creates situations embracing the labor of the hands (the feet and the mind) and temporality as net (boredom, excess, ex-centricsm). "Keep on Threading or: TITLE"  is considered a type of study without learning (Moten/Harney) where people are invited to join the rolling off yarn from the cones or  simply sit n´rest n´see / n´have a book or tea / and hang in there for a while.


"Keep on Threading or:  a TITLE" is a continuation of the collaboration of visual artist Tina Jonsbu and Jana Unmüßig who met at the summer academy for artistic research in Tromso, Norway, 2015. Since then three performative experiments with different yarn have been presented: THREADS (2015, Tromso), THOUGHTS ON THREADS (2017, Berlin), TWO BODIES IN SPACE (2019, Rovaniemi).


Video Documentation on the latter performance will be accessible throughout "Keep on Threading or:  a TITLE". There will be tea served and selected books that have been read or could be read in relation to the proposal are at temporary disposal for the time of the performance.
