conditions of togetherness (our work on care)
conditions of togetherness (our work on care) evolves from a collaboration with Hache Collective (the Netherlands), an experimental ensemble who work in inclusive and non-hierarchical modes of music creation and performance; and artist Tomi Hilsee (Rotterdam, the Netherlands), the initiator of Tower of Love, a tower collectively built with found material and love in a quasi-squatted space in a park in Rotterdam. My idea to work with Hache and Hilsee stemmed from our shared interest in care within artistic practice.
This work maps the collaborative process by means of a film, an online performance and my research into care. The film documents the artists' process while we work together. Beginning months before COVID-19 took hold, the events and dialogues featured in the film follow the creation of a score and a performance revolving around shared labor and friendship. It also shares the our struggles and joys as the pandemic forces us to adapt their modes of working and being together.
