DEEP DIVE: A performance lecture on handstand, in–betweens and transitions

For the past two years, Signe Løve Anderskov has been working on an artistic research project at SKH in Stockholm (formerly DOCH). Along the way she became pregnant and decided to include the transformation of the body in her studies of the spectacular.

Inverting Self is a performance lecture in which the artist uses both humor and a great deal of honesty to combine the artistic research with the personal confessions of the artist herself. Based on a photo exhibition, Anderskov moves from storytelling to handstand performance, and lets the different layers of the work emerge. The project is a unique insight into a female artist’s personal work, and a poetic documentation of life transitions in an artist’s body.

Signe Løve Anderskov is a Danish handstand artist, educated from the Russian state circus school. She has been part of the new circus company Cikaros since 2005. In her artistic work, she is preoccupied with diving into details to discover radically new approaches to the basic components of circus art. In 2021, she completed an MFA in modern circus from DOCH/Stockholm University.

Time and place: 16th of March 16.30-17.30 at AFUK, Enghavevej 82B, 2450 Kbh. SV.
