WAH is the name for collaborative work of Anja Weber, Jagna Anderson and Dodi Helschinger.
Since 2016 we keep criss-crossing together various artistic fields and creating new polyphonies out of dance, acoustic and electronic music, vocal performance, poetry, video and installation. We explore intersections between (female) body and its different multi sensorial and cultural contextualizations. We are combining improvisation and instant composition with scores.
 

 

PROJECTS

 

Amorphous Alloy

 
Amorphous alloys are metallic materials with a glass-like structure and astonishing properties. Used as biomaterial for implantation into bones, metallic glass dissolves gradually in organisms and is replaced with bone tissue … We explore possible meeting points between body and machine, melting electronics, poetry, vocals, body/movement and spacial structures into a performative amorphous alloy.
On our journey we dive into idiosyncratic aesthetics of cyborg/posthuman utopias and musical subcultures.

With the poem “amorphe legierung” by Dodi Helschinger,
and music by Mila Chiral

Performomat scent#2: where is my when

 
This video-choreography project is a result of a durational instant composition session of three performers and a videographer.
The session explores body-mind states inspired by olfactory perception within the frame of a time-score. While playing with simultaneous or overlapping phrasing of sound, movement and stillness the performers examine the subtle reticulations of time and space, and question the possible role that the limbic and subcortical processing of sensory data may play in this process.

Performance: Anja Weber, Dodi Helschinger, Jagna Anderson

Camera: Katharina Hauke
