The new work by Ingri Fiksdal in collaboration with Spanish choreographer Núria Guiu is called “Supermedium” and is part of the CÈL·LULA 4 project, produced by Mercat de les Flors. The piece is a large-format version inspired by “MEDIUM”, a solo that the two choreographers created in 2022. In the history of dance up to the present day, there are different approaches to the embodiment of the virtual or invisible. Witches or mediums have always been women associated with the fringes of society and superpowers.
In “Supermedium”, eight dancers become mediums who channel movement through time and space, and thus vessels that connect past, future and present times. Through attempts of invocation, possession and finally exorcism of various movement archives, the performance grows into a speculative fiction that examines what kinds of body knowledge and histories we possess and which bodies are possessed.
