FRI NILAS LINDELL: NUNATAK – A POEM ABOUT SPACES

Photo: Fri Nilas Lindell: A black and white photo of ice. Shades of grey, dirty white, black. Down left a round form like a human cell, all over the picture a network of lines resembling veins, or fine lace. A thick vein splits the picture vertically.

SCROLL DOWN FOR PLAIN LANGUAGE TEXT

I breath space for myself

travel through human congestion

to a space

where the words that never existed

dance

A space outside of norm

disappears into the black hole

Marginalized

          invisible

                    lonely

Safe to disappear

                    I breath

          I see far away

I dance

The piece studies what kinds of spaces we create, what we form spaces of, and can we expand norms with different kinds of spaces. It encourages the audience to ponder what kinds of spaces they have in their everyday life, what are the qualities of those spaces and how they are born.

How can you affect the creation of space? How do you create space? What kinds of spaces are you comfortable in? Spaces can be for example physical, a state of mind, memory, a space created by an encounter of two creatures or something else.

Nunatak means a stoney ridge jutting out of a glacier or a mountain peak. Nunatak is like an island in a frozen ocean, isolated but nevertheless a place where living is possible.

Nunatak is a dance performance. The performance is like a poem about movement. The performer moves in different spaces. The spaces are on stage. They are also in the performers mind. The audience can also experience different kinds of spaces in their minds.
