21st September 2018, Royal Albert Hall London
Innervisions is excited to present its collaboration with Nina Kurtela live on stage at Royal Albert Hall. Nina Kurtela (born 1981 in Zagreb, Croatia) is a visual artist and a dance maker. Her work evolves around choreography, installation, performance and video, thereby effortlessly transgressing the lines between different fields. Performing internationally in a variety of contexts – from museums and galleries to festivals and public places in Berlin, Zagreb, New York, Sarajevo, Tokyo, Vienna, Paris… – this will be the first time that Nina Kurtela will present an ongoing performance practice in a concert hall. She will dance a fragment from “365 routines”, a video and performance piece created together with the artist Hana Erdmann. Throughout 2018, Innervisions has drawn from “365 routines” to create its cover art and visual identity. With the performance at Royal Albert hall the collaboration between Nina Kurtela and Innervisions will go full circle. Merging movement, music and video projections to envelop the visual fragility of the dancing body on stage, Nina Kurtela’s performance will intend to subtly challenge the contemporary idea of high-performance. Rather, and comparable to all the dancers out there, every move will be a code transferring inner states of self-consciousness, sensitivity and sensuality into the space of the social body.

Innervisions cover art 2018
A collaboration with the artists Nina Kurtela and Hana Erdman
How is movement affected by the extreme working conditions of today like constant mobility, dislocation, homelessness, exhaustion? Is there a form of communication over distance that functions without speech or signs? Can dance be an imaginary space of belonging? In 2018 Innervisions explores these questions with its cover art through a collaboration with Nina Kurtela and Hana Erdman, two artists and long distance friends. Images taken from their project „365 routines“ depict bits from a year long choreography, their only form of contact. The choreography was developed by exchanging dance movements on a daily basis through video. Routine after routine a sense of remote togetherness unravels on screen. Dancing becomes home for the two.
Since „365 routines“ is a video, Innervisions will coordinatly expand the frame of its visual communication. For that reason the label invited the graphic designer Rafaela Drazic to join the collaboration. Throughout the year Rafaela will create derivates from the videos. Derivates are extracted video stills paired with a typographic and chromatic environment suitable for the hybrid media involved in releases online and in print. In doing so Innervisions attempts to capture the atmosphere of dancing as a humane bond in the age of non-human interaction.
