REPOST: Oct 7, 2017
4 years ago EyeKnee Coordination and Magnar Åm partnered with ICAN Norway (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons) on the large scale international performance project Will this moment ever let go?, which also became the starting point for the documentary film EMBRACING HIROSHIMA. This year ICAN is the winner of the Nobel Peace Price 2017!! Congratulations to all the hard working individuals in this important organization, and to everyone on our project for our small contribution!
Tyler and I had the pleasure of participating at New York City Independent Film Festival May 1-7 2017, with a screening of EMBRACING HIROSHIMA. Our film was paired up with the great PBS documentary Awakening in Taos, written and directed by Mark Gordon.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out and to the festival staff!

During our residency at Dansearena nord this past June, we were able to start working on the new dance & film performance DRIP / stalagmite time. My collaborators Stephanie Sleeper (dancer and costume designer ) and Tyler Sparks (cinematographer) contributed greatly to the work, and together we danced, sewed and filmed our way into the beginning of this piece, which will be ready for touring in the spring of 2017.
A huge THANK YOU to Dansearena nord and to Arts Council Norway for supporting this work!
Here’s a little taste of what we came up with:
