...is a new performance work set inside the union of virtual and physical space. In the merging of these two realms, collaborators Ann Sofie Clemmensen and Charlotte Stickles explore the constructed distinction between reality and imagination, corporeal and incorporeal. The two artists move through a multi-disciplinary narration of various dream-like scenes, teasing out ideas of how we occupy and relate to the spaces that hold meaning for us. Created during a time when the mundane and the bizarre became almost interchangeable, Elsewhere, Again investigates human relationship to place by examining it through the lens of dreams, subconsciousness, and surreality.
