conceptual blending and vertical dramaturgy

Tags: , ,

Where: Inter Arts Center, Malmö (entrance code is 2323)
When: March 3, 19.00

As part of the series of seminars on dramatic arts, contemporary music, videoart and performance, the second seminar on conceptual blending and vertical dramaturgy will discuss the work of Gilles Fauconnier and Mark Turner. If conceptual blending can be understood as an extension of the metaphor to include also non verbal communication, vertical dramaturgy is a means of structuring artistic content within a common time flow.

The seminars are held in Swedish and are a part of the artistic research project ”Ögonblickets anatomi”


  • Erik Rynell: Conceptual blending
  • Jörgen Dahlqvist: Vertical dramaturgy
  • Kent Olofsson: Vertical dramaturgy and composition

An attempt at acquiring the characteristic features of idiomatic Baroque violin bowing through investigating the gestural patterns derived from speech, acting and dance, and their assimilation into bowing action.

Our ambition is to be a creative meeting place for discussion and dynamic controversy, a forum for explorative processes surrounding film, film policy and cinematic art.

A performance for listeners and observers in two acts

by Janna Holmstedt
The artist Janna Holmstedt presents her performance Limit-Cruisers for 6 participants at Weld, Stockholm, 21-23 February.  In Janna Holmstedt’s work there is no privileged position or full view. There is no audience and no actors. There isn’t even any artwork unless you activate it and set it in motion. As a visitor, you are invited to explore the experience of being situated and responsive, where exformation is called into play and normality is questioned. You don’t need to perform, only engage.

Limit-Cruisers is the first of a series of performances that are included in the artist Janna Holmstedt’s research project ”What You See is not What You Get”. Different versions of Limit-Cruisers have been performed at Inter Arts Center in Malmö, and at Performance Studies international Conference #19, Stanford University, California.
