Game Changer is a performance that explores our need for adaptable group affiliation and rebellious individualism, where the boundary between viewer and actor dissolves. Visitors enter a dim lit club environment, each dressed in anonymizing hoods decorated with carnivalistic feathers. Our need and longing for intimacy, comfort and fulfillment are tested and processed through gestures, rituals, and impulses. Game Changer dissolves and shifts the boundaries between visitor and actor as each visitor chooses how they participate.
LILITH is the artist duo Elin Lundgren (1973) and Petter Pettersson (1972). Through performances that touch on community, group belonging and exclusion, LILITH construct their works as living images infused with an absurdist sense of humour and a stripped-down documentary narrative. Their key concerns revolve around universal human issues such as love, loss and sadness, they are propelled by a desire to move into the audience’s consciousness like a disorder, all the while hoping to understand what it means to be a human being.
Lundgren (f.1973) and Pettersson (f.1972) have worked together with visual and performing arts in various forms since 1999. In 2007, the artist duo founded the acclaimed performance studio – Lilith Performance Studio – an independent arena for practical artistic research focusing on new produced large-scale art performances by invited artists from all over the world.
Siri Jennefelt (b.1989) is a composer and sound designer. She has composed electronic music for numerous performances, as well as performed her music live in several performances. Since 2019, Siri performs with Ellen Norlund in their performance duo The Wind.
