→ Margret Sara Gudjonsdottir: Exhibition CATALYSTS – Somatic Resonance (2022)
CATALYSTS – Somatic Resonance is a choreographic exhibition of somatic body states from the work of Icelandic choreographer Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir. The exhibition is a choreography of Mixed Realty technologies, kinaesthetic algorithms, archival material and live bodies. Visitors are invited to download the CATALYSTS app to immerse themselves in the resonant states of the dancers informed by Guðjónsdóttir’s deep tissue release practice “FULL DROP into the Body”. States of affective potential arise from awakening latent energies over time, across media and flesh, expanding what dance can be and how bodies can remember.

→ Margret Sara Gudjonsdottir: Conspiracy Hypersonic States (2017)
Performance. A symphony of pathologies, sentiments, and physical states originating in the personal emotional body are on display in this latest work by Icelandic choreographer Margrét Sara Gudjónsdóttir. Emotions rush through these bodies without filters. The viewer experiences extreme and at times painfully private states. Portraying the anonymous multitude, the five dancers are ceremonially surrendered to, and moved by, invisible forces, both political and energetic in nature, that are far greater than all of us.
Exhibition. Using Mixed Reality, an archive was created of the studio processes of choreographer Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir in creating her 2017 performance Conspiracy Ceremony: HYPERSONIC STATES. This intense and powerful choreography was made from many hours in the studio working with reflective somatic (bodily) practices. The deep and meditative quality of the work makes it a fascinating archiving challenge: how is it possible to archive the dynamic, moving meditation of the dancers?
