I Dance / Movement

1 Position yourself. Ask your friend to stand next to you, facing your right shoulder.

2 Place your right leg between your friend's feet. Shift your right leg so it is between your friend's feet. Put more weight on this leg, so it is ready to support your friend.

3 Grab your friend's right hand with your left and drape it over your shoulder. With your head under your friend’s right armpit, wrap your arm around the back of your friend's right knee.

4 Squat down and position your friend’s body on your shoulders. Try to equally distribute your friend’s body weight on each side.

5 Grab your friend’s right wrist with your right hand (firm grip). Your left hand is free to is free to additionally compensate weight on the upper leg

6. Transport your friend.



Carrying a body means carrying holes. On the base of sensing the world through the idea of holes and the wish to grab holes in order to find something special, we can acknowledge a wave of transformation, which is starting as an inner practical state and eventually starts to interact with other existing beings in the room. On the base of choreographic material used in a score, the dancers provoke states of transformation and multilayer them aiming to transform from one material into another. Jamuna Mirjam Zweifel is a swiss based dance/movement -artist. With the collective Zukunft.Project she is developing and testing formats of alternative futures and with The Field she is part of a dance collective that works close with the Tanzhaus Zurich, bringing dance in unknown contexts and thinking further, how dance can affect society within.


II Sound

What definitely characterizes the experience of sound as an artistic medium is the fact that, unlike the vast majority of artistic expressions, it has a beginning and an end. Everything that happens in between is clearly linked to each other and only becomes important through a certain temporality. Even if the time factor plays an important role here, what is important to me is detachment: "Inviting the listener to detach himself from the idea of time, just as when one looks at a landscape of being cradled in one's environment, forgetting time and having access and the possibility of entering a meditative state. Sound is the means to amplify a space, a body, an atmosphere, to reveal details, it shapes and distorts reality.


Léa Jullien is a French artist who lives and works between Paris and Zurich. She began her art education in Valence and then obtained a master's degree in Visual Arts at Ecal in 2019. Her practice is oriented around sound, installation, and video in order to reinterpret the urban space surrounding her and create sensorial and sensitive spaces. Always keeping a link with the urban and the construction, notably by capturing the sounds of the city, she produces experimental music under the name Tropical Vegas.
