The future is dark, nothing is clear yet. There were dark rings under their eyes. Dark thunderclouds. It was dark outside and I couldn't see much. River water is as dark as hard work. The mountains are darker in the foreground. They saw the future only in dark colors, 'gloomy, unhappy, discomforted'.
Karolin Poska invites you to dream in dark times with open eyes. Using body, objects, sorcery, voice, space, she tries to create consolation for the anxieties of living.
She makes her hips lie, she makes onions cry, she does things which lead nowhere - nothing is true and everything is possible. She sees forever, she waits for nirvana, hijacks, falls legs together, and longs for what the heart gets. She invites you to participate without participation. No one is forced to do anything but, is gently allowed to join.
Karolin Poska is a Tallinn based choreographer, performance artist and dancer. Through her creative activities she tries to understand what it is like to be alive nowadays. She likes to play with objects, transform reality and mess with the audience’s expectations. Her first solo performance “Thank you, you are welcome, THANK YOU, you are welcome, thank you” was performed both in Estonia and internationally. At the moment she wonders about the borders of visual art while studying contemporary art at
the Estonian Academy of Arts.
