a collaboration of The Instrument and Maya Weinberg
Two in a room, installing their physical state in a private and mutual territory. Storage spaces carry a craving for containing. Wild meets tamed, survival meets the need for stability. The longing for an order reveals a 'living-room-nature', raising questions about how and to what extent we engineer our environment.
While House attempts to lay 'wild-nature' and 'domestic-nature' side by side and expose the beauty, singularity and poesy of contrast, posing ethical / aesthetic questions about self-acculturation and coexistence.
While House was presented as 'work in progress' in Ausland Berlin, April 11th 2014, as part of the series Place Rhythm. Pulse , in collaboration with Sarah Marguier as a lights designer.
The Instrument is a research vehicle, standing for the work and creation of choreographer, dancer and teacher Maya M. Carroll. It is based on her independent as well as collaborative work with the composer / musician Roy Carroll. Since 2006 Maya and Roy have been constantly developing their exchange, integrating several other artists and collaborators and have created over ten pieces together. Collectively and separately - Maya and Roy´s diverse activities encompass choreographic/composed work, immprovisation-based group performance, sound/scenographic installation and set/costume/visual art design.
