sybrig dokter

An investigation of the public and private body, bringing what is inside- out. The project will take place at sites that will be disclosed by being inhabited, by being exposed to the public realm through various media.

The artists will share their time and space/place with the public and by this open up spaces to be filled with actions, memories and remnants of their  activities. The project moves between and through disciplines and will manifest itself with live performance, video, installation and written texts.

The first edition of this project took place at the Scientific Library of Lviv National Ivan Franko University between 15 February – 22 February 2012.

It consists of a collaboration between 4 artists in the fields of choreographic art, performance art and video art. Lava-Dansproduktion from Stockholm and Art Association “Dzyga” from Lviv are collaborating in the framework of the Tandem project  organized by the ECF (Amsterdam) and MitOst(Berlin) carried out together with Centre for Cultural Management Lviv (www.kultura.org.ua), Soros Foundation Moldova (www.soros.md) and Culture Action Europe (www.cultureactioneurope.org). It aims at building new and long-term collaborative relations between selected organizations from European Union countries and cultural key players from Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova.

The project resulted in 4 video shorts : Circulation I-IV.

From september 19 until september 30 2011 cultural manager Roman Hankevych visited Sybrig Dokter from Lava-Dansproduktion in Stockholm where they had an office residency at the House of Dance and at Weld. During this period they worked on developing the project and provide a base for the implementation in Lviv february 2012.
