Living Documents I–V by Dominik Grünbühel and Charlotta Ruth is about the counter-intuitive but still widely held desire to document dance and performance. In one round tour, the audience gets to visit five different choreographic installations in live loops, thus experiencing the seemingly prosaic act of documentation as a vivid process of communication. Whether you choose to re-watch one of the five performances again and again or to explore the whole variety of artistic approaches, you will be able to grasp the tension between the transient moment of the here and now and the idea of documentation and reproducibility.

Anna Öberg is concerned with the interpretation and tradition of an old Swedish dance called polska, using it as a basis for thoughts about half-truths and pseudohistory. Charlotta Ruth mingles what happens in the present with what has already happened in the past. She conducts her own forensics using her project report and blue adhesive tape. Dominik Grünbühel doubles his own body and pauses for a moment in his one-man concert machine. Jenni-Elina von Bagh melts props, anatomy and her life archive and observes the synthesis through a prism of futures. PETER calls for a (market)place of activities, where, in a moment of memory, all investments are reset.

The Living Documents project was initiated by Charlotta Ruth and Dominik Grünbühel. Dominik Grünbühel’s works have been presented at the Vienna Festival, at Tanzquartier Wien and at WUK. Ohne Nix (devised with Luke Baio) was presented as part of Aerowaves Spring Forward 2017. It is the artist’s objective to manufacture all the means for his highly unpretentious work himself. Grünbühel is also the bass player of Nifty’s, an award-winning nu klezmer band. Charlotta Ruth’s work often plays on time and perception in the fields of choreography, game design and artistic research. Her pieces are typically conceived as site-specific, the sites including stages, galleries, the public space or the internet. Ruth’s pieces have been presented at such venues as Tanzquartier Wien, WUK, Brunnenpassage, brut, MDT Stockholm and Dansens Hus Stockholm.
