Abstract [en]

Vulnerability Manifesto is a research where I ask, what does it mean for me to usevulnerability as material for artistic work. In this research, I deal with problems that occur inthe process of materialising emotions, through my interest of transforming emotions into aconcrete material.I will try to answer to a question: How can vulnerability be used as a material for performancewithout it becoming a representation or fake? If I claim that I do honest work withoutrepresentation of vulnerability, or acting/faking, what does that mean practically?The main topic in this research is vulnerability. Vulnerability as a word, emotion and as amaterial for performance. I will critically look upon my process with vulnerability, boththrough my own expectations, and with references from the field of contemporary dance. Todo this, I have chosen Yvonne Rainer’s biography Feelings Are Facts- a life (2013) and AnnaGrip’s physical practice.As a working method, I create a physical practice that later on becomes a performance titled“my heart will go on”. In this process, I deal with questions such as, what is a 21centuryachievement society, and what is my position in it? I will also deal with my personalexhaustion and burnout, and use them as a tool in the process of making this research.Vulnerability Manifesto is an empowering personal research. It’s a personal revolution, and aprocess towards accepting sensitiveness, fear, shame and judgment. It’s self-centred, yetuniversal.
