at BRUNAKRA

Brunakra offers residency for artists, writers, journalists, or anybody that carries ideas that requires time and space to realize. The period is supposed to end with an exhibit or presentation of the completed work to the public or specially invited guests. This is our log of previous visiting residents.

Where I go, you go

Spring 2018 BRUNAKRA Temporary was visited by the choreographer Tori Lawrence accompanied by the dancer Ellie Goudie-Averill, throughout four weeks in May-June 2018.

Together they explored the area while shooting for an upcoming film planed to be released end of 2018. Culminating the residency, they presented an in-progress version of the film as well as a short live site-specific performance. The open reception was held a beautiful day, but also fragile, presenting a work in progress where the Now York dance scene met our hen house. Subtly they took us through their work, leading the attending guests from thought to video screen to the chickens and eventually out in the open fields backside of the farm. Art is never an object, art is subject. Subject to our experiences.

Water, apocalypse and writing

Jose stayed for two weeks at BRUNAKRA from June 10th to write on his play about a world in despair where water is almost gone. The only pockets left is on high altitude places in the Andes and Himalayas. When Jose left he went to bicycle the 650 km along the coast up to Stockholm during an additional two weeks. Here he writes in own words about his stay and experiences. read more
