Performance by Charlotte Hug at Navigating in the Unknown, Monday 11 May, 2015.
Gravity lends weight to all objects and causes the tides, but it can also be used to connote seriousness and depth, or a metaphorical weight or tide. If gravity is another word for seriousness, lightness connotes levity, humour and flippancy.

A performance between agitated thinking, writing and speaking in an unstable equilibrium.
The workshop will shed new light on disorientation and on how film artists throughout history use (optical) disorientation and confusion as a paradigm in their work. What can be gained by losing one’s grip, by simply letting go? What pictures arise with dizziness?
The process of slipping into dizzying freefall, of sliding into uncertainty, becoming stuck, losing one’s way, giving up are as much actions as occurrences, both active and passive. Dizziness is a midway state at the point where everything and nothing seems possible, where certainty and uncertainty are in superposition, marked by an increasing loss of control.
