THULE - Beyond the borders of the known world

Premiere May 8, 2019

Captured during an excursion through one of the last untouched nature environments of Europe, Thule- Beyond the border of the known world presents mystery and precariousness as well as the reminiscence of past generations. This multisensory journey explores the embodied accounts of a Nordic environment by a dancer and camera in movement. The triadic relationship between dance, camera and landscapes are shared with the audience in the form of kinesthetic poetry and visual/aural metaphors of lived experiences.

THULE is guided by Salzer’s themes of Romanticism and Wanderlust and Baer’s notion of liminal spaces. The work sheds light to current environmental concerns by confronting the female body with the expansive environment, using scale and proportion as metaphors of harmony and domination.

“You have created a masterwork. loved the stillness, and the film and the mixing of the three panels, so exquisitely put together…and the landscape. For me a fertile environmental project. And the music. I love when the fertile and the beautiful brings me to tears”
