MIDDLE LIFE? A performative diary ::::::::: by Camilla Graff Junior
Camilla Graff Junior works on “Middle Life? A performative diary” during her two-month residency at Grüntaler9. The diary is to be published in forty-one chapters and will be based on forty-one acts, Camilla did in her 41st year. The acts were divided into series “of celebrating”, “of leaving the past behind”, “of healing” and “of entering the future”. The acts started on her 40th birthday in 2014 and were completed on her birthday one year later, performed at Grüntaler9.
Every Tuesday in May and June 2016 Camilla works on a chapter together with those who pass by during the opening hours 14:00 – 20:00. All are welcome. The residency will finalize in a dinner and a performance including the chapters developed at Grüntaler9.
Tuesday 14 June with special guest Niels Bøgeskov Junior.
On June 24 the residency comes to an end with the Süpperclüb and several performances. Pepe Dayaw (Nowhere Kitchen) will take care of the dinner.
“Middle Life? is the third project in a performance trilogy entitled “Journal(s)”. The common point for all three works is that they integrate autobiographical material and that Camilla use herself as a projection surface in relation to the audience to talk about identity, family relations, grief, norms, gender and love. The first project in the series “My mom is a wolf, my dad…” will be performed at Meinblau Projektraum on June 3rd and the second “Ex(s)” at Theaterdiscounter on June 10th.
The project is supported by: Danish Arts Foundation – Committee for Performing Arts and Nordic Culture Point.
