Bodies of Water  

Bodies of Water is a performance short film about the relationship between human and nature, especially queer, overflowing, fluid bodies and water. Movement, voice, text, video, photography and sound are combined into collage, addressing constructions of (un)naturalness and difference as well as questions of connectedness, belonging and kinship, freely after Donna Haraway’s Chthuluzän theory. A poetic encounter of different life forms and materialities making waves together.

In addition to the film, Bodies of Water exists as a live performance in different versions. 
In 2021, the project received the Neptune State Award for Water (Austria).
