Mermaid of the ‘Hypersea’ - by Snorre Hansen
The ‘Hypersea’ is what Mark & Dianna McMenamin calls the water we, all living organisms, carry within.
Mermaid of the ‘Hypersea’ is a choreographic and performative research on being a body of water. It’s a dance with and by the water we all carry within, the water we are and the water that passes through us and blurs the lines between me, you and us. How can we connect with this ‘Hypersea’ and how could we become mermaids of it? Together with the dance artists David Kummer and Peter Scherrebeck Hansen, Snorre Hansen will develop and be in practices of becoming mermaids of the ‘Hypersea’.
They will spend time with the stories and dances that connects human- with more-than-human worlds, both in relation to hybrids in folklores, queer dance practices and performative states of being. They will be working in close collaboration with water and the containers, carrier bags, pipes, tubes, airs, and grounds it will be carried by, contained in and leaking through.
