How Little Is Enough? - Sustainable Methods of Performance for Transformative Encounters

Within the project Steinunn Knúts-Önnudóttir will explore sustainable methods of creating transformative encounters with an audience through participatory and site-specific artworks, with a particular focus on how minimal and sustainable the framework for the encounter can be. The project is rooted in Steinunn's artistic practice of more than 20 years, her degree in theology and most recently her practice as a life coach.

"Throughout my practice I have been interested in creating a meaningful dialogue with my audience, acknowledging that what they bring to the performance is part of the actual content of the artwork. My aim is to bring these pre-existing participatory practices and sustainable questions into conversation with a wide range of other fields of practice that invite participants to engage with issues related to their own values and give them space to co-create and reflect in ways that lead to potentially transformative and revelatory experiences."

The practice is anchored in a sustainable production ethos and a genuine interest in engaging an audience in a profound dialogue around quality of life.
