Do you ever have aesthetic experiences from reading theoretical texts?

Last spring, FLÖKT - a flickering flow premiered, a spherical and serene dance performance by Bára Sigfúsdóttir and Tinna Ottesen. In extension of the theme of the performance, Tinna Ottesen entered into conversation with eco-philosopher Guðbjörg R. Jóhannesdóttir. The result is a podcast that zooms in on the relationship between aesthetics and our experience of ecology.


Heb jij ooit een esthetische beleving bij het lezen van een theoretische tekst?

Afgelopen lente ging FLÖKT - a flickering flow in première, een sferische en verstillende dansvoorstelling van Bára Sigfúsdóttir en Tinna Ottesen. Naar aanleiding van de thematiek van de voorstelling ging Tinna Ottesen in gesprek met ecofilosoof Guðbjörg R. Jóhannesdóttir. Het resultaat is een podcast die inzoomt op de relatie tussen esthetiek en onze beleving van ecologie.
