Come here dust and hair

The imaginative space between a piece of language and an intersection of commonly overlooked details in the environment is treated like a strange object that opens a distinct process of observation. Acting as both host and instigator, Litó Walkey continues to deal with the generative space among memory, presence and collective thinking. The audience is made complicit in a site of attention qualified by more than a single identifiable subject. Multiple intervals of return in alternating presentational modes foreground the co inhabitation of temporal, acoustic, spacial, physical and associative debris.

This work is rooted in an ongoing practice of creating language and movement events through strategies of collaboration, proliferation and translation. The performance is set in the almost-dark, similar to a concert. A single performer retells encounters and observations that took place at a different time, in a different place. The performed script and revisited memories refer to the language that was created with people and details who are not visible anymore.

Litó Walkey is a Berlin based artist whose work operates through performance, writing and choreography exploring non-hegemonic strategies for being connected, resourceful, and response-able. In her work, attentiveness procedures emphasize lateral and divergent thinking to consider the radical potential of marginal, accidental, and less visible phenomena. Collaborating through circuits of transversal interdisciplinary processes, Litó aims to create public spaces for critical thinking and experimentation unbound by single authorship, discipline or terminus.
Litó’s work has been supported through artistic commissions from international choreographic performance festivals and organizations. The work is complimented by ongoing discourse and practice-based exchange with colleagues and students inside and outside academic environments.
