I Dance

Carrying a body means carrying holes. The world can be seen through holes and holes are being dug in order to find something special. We acknowledge the transformation that starts from practicing an inner state, eventually beginning to interact with the other beings in the room.

Setting out from choreographic material used in a score, the dancers experience and experiment with various states of transformation. Combining multiple layers they aim to metamorphose from one material into another.

II Sound

Unlike the majority of artistic expressions, sound as a medium has a beginning and an end. Everything happening in between is clearly connected within a sequence and gains its importance only through a certain temporality. «Holes» invites the listeners to detach themselves from this idea of time and to instead look at sound the way one looks at a landscape, leaving behind the perception of time and entering a meditative state. Sound thus becomes a means to amplify spaces, bodies, atmospheres, to reveal new details, reshaping and distorting reality.

What is a sharing?

Léa Jullien is an artist and composer currently based in Paris. Her artistic practice revolves around installation, video and sound, in which she reinterprets urban spaces, creating immersive environments that invite contemplation of the user’s role. Influenced by musique concrète and cinema, she maintains a close link with workspaces and construction sites, capturing sounds as part of her process. Léa also produces experimental music under the name Tropical Vegas. She began her artistic training in Valencia and went on to pursue a master’s degree in visual arts at ECAL in 2019.

Jamuna Mirjam Zweifel

For some time now, Jamuna has used the question of ‚where the body ends and the world begins‘ as a starting point for practices and the development of new questions. As a dancer, concept developer, and movement researcher, she explores how we, as human beings, can digest and transform information. However, it is also a significant concern for Jamuna to consider non-human actors in artistic processes in order to work on an alternative future.

She addressed these themes in the spring of 2023 during the 3-month virtual residency (RE)SHAPE with Chilean artist Claudia Gonzalez Godoy, from which she draws inspiration to create a new solo piece, to be presented in March 2024 at the museum Kunst(zeug)haus Rapperswil, Switzerland in the frame of Date to Dance. Since 2019, Jamuna has been working with the collective The Field (Zurich), which collaborates closely with Tanzhaus Zurich, and the interdisciplinary alliance Zookunft.Project (Zurich/Bern/Berlin), which she co-founded herself. In addition to developing short pieces and interdisciplinary research with international collaborators (Digging Holes & Sailing Salt, Earthly Flux, Interdisciplinary Cyphering, Ohne Schweiss kein Preis, Post Show Talk, I Object, Via Verso, Question Kiosk, etc.) and a long-term production titled NULL, she has presented her own solo piece, Encapsulation, on short piece platforms. Jamuna is currently working on the dance and sound production Holes with Léa Jullien (FR/CH), Maureen Zollinger (CH), and former Bachelor students from HF ZUB Zurich. Holes will be shown in June 2024 at Theater am Gleis in Winterthur, Switzerland. Jamuna has performed in works by Meg Stuart (Water Works), Isabel Lewis (Scalable Skeletal Escalator), Simone Aughterlony (The Best and The Worst of Us) amongst others.

In 2019, she received the cultural promotion award from the Canton of Solothurn in the field of dance, as well as the Azeiger Cultural Promotion Award Solothurn. In the same year, she successfully completed her education at the Höhere Fachschule für Zeitgenössischen und Urbanen Bühnentanz (HF ZUB) in Zurich. In summer 2023, she received a scholarship for the DanceWEB Program at the Impulstanz Festival in Vienna from Pro Helvetia. Jamuna currently lives in Zurich.
