Alice MacKenzie is a dance artist and writer based in Stockholm. She isdrawn to performance as a space for temporary world-making. Her work currently tangles speculative fiction, voice and movement scores alongside medicinal plants, shared as performances of intimate intra-action and leaky zines. Alice is collaborating with Siriol Joyner @siriolsiriolsiriol on a new work for iM Konsthall.
Together they make performances, sounds, scents, books and dances. They have been working with the idea of creating dances that are sensorial capsules of a place and time, created from gathered materials (plants, sounds, movements, colours) gathered in different places. Alice and Siriol have been thinking of the dance studio as a portal and a place to process materials gathered both outside and inside.
They are very interested to learn about the languages of the area around Moskosel, the Sámi languages, the local vernacular etc, and would love to hear from any local and nearby folks who are engaged with language in their lives and work (translator, poet, storyteller etc) and might be interested to meet with them.
