Anne-Mareike Hess & Sandra Lolax

Residence N°13 - Principle of hope

In this collaboration Anne-Mareike Hess and Sandra Lolax direct their interest towards the notion of “being together” and investigate experiences and wishes concerning coexistence. As a starting point, they ask questions like: “How can we be together?”, “What kind of coexistence can we imagine?” and “How can we formulate utopic wishes?” This residency at Labor Gras is the first step in their research, where they will try out different approaches to the theme in order to narrow them down to a first draft.

Sandra Lolax was born and raised in Vaasa, Finland. She got her education at Balettakademien in Stockholm. Since 2007 she has been working freelance as a performer with her base in Berlin and Finland. Sandra has performed in works by choreographers as Stina Nyberg, Rosalind Goldberg, Maya Lipsker, Miriam Horwitz, Anne Mareike Hess and Carl Knif. In 2010 she made an adaptation of the solo Art and Life by Deborah Hay. During the last couple of years she has started to expose her own work. The first example of this is the solo performance And I'm ready for action which was performed at Weld in Stockolm in 2011. The solo is part of the project Fake somatic practice, that Lolax initiated in 2010 together with Rosalind Goldberg and Stina Nyberg.
