Edith is co.Founder and member of Company HA, a collaboration of four dance artists from different countries, based in Berlin, Germany. Having found each other and worked together for several years through Collective ONE:THIRD, we share an interest in combining different forms of art into a work that reflects humanity and communicates in a transparent manner. Coming from different backgrounds, our meeting point lies in improvisation and instant composition, in which we cultivate our individual qualities, complex physicality and performative elements. In the desire of opening up our vocabulary, involving new media and other artists, we decided to form Company HAA, a platform for any dance related art. Our work intends to challenge the traditional idea of a performative space. Each of us is continuously developing the research in their personal ways and by coming together we complement each other in a unique manner.
Edith is as well co.founder and Choreographer/dancer along side Tania Giovo and Filmmaker Valquire Velkovic at ZIZ Company, a dance film collective, creating music videos, media art installations, dance films, basically everything involving Film and Movement/Dance as a Language.
Methods of Completion, A beeing that causes it self “Methods of Completion” Is a journey through various patterns of endings. A variation of attempts to end and begin and return. To fall, land and fall again, to finish, and to repeat. It is a comment on the absurd circle of repetition, revolution after revolution, love after love, orgasm after orgasm, death after death, apple after apple, war after war, shower after shower, shit after shit.
We ask, are we afraid of endings, of letting go of something, or is there a comfort, a safety in allowing patterns by creating a structure in something that otherwise would be undefined? Is this a method of completion, and therefore a catalyst to the madness? A reset to the cycle. Or symbolism of this cycle itself. A breath in this continuous motion that is existence.
Man is a creature haunted by a vision of “completion”, what Sartre calls "a being that causes itself “. As we strive for the complete, we search for the endings throughout our lives and history; the end of the day, the end of a meal, the end of a story, the end of a territory, the end of the world, the end of innocence.
“Methods of Completion” is a embodiment of the relationship that exists between all of humanity and the idea of an “end”. It is a reflection of human life, its circles and its history.
