Co.Lab Sound Peer Network 2020-2021
Nadia Berri is a Swiss multidisciplinary artist based in London working in sculpture, choreography, drawing, language, film and sound.
Her interests lie in disparate materials and situations and in her practice she brings things and people together in theatrical, often absurd scenarios intended to mess up a fixed idea of reality.
Berri conceives and choreographs sur-realities that go under the name of 'käfig' - unscripted sculptural plays that evolve using chance methods and material improvisations. 'käfig' performances are composed and produced live on 'stage' without any pre-existing narrative. Performing in all kinds of locations - derelict buildings, car parks, living rooms, street corners, project spaces, parks. Launderettes etc. - they use disparate objects, movement, sound and language as sculptural materials in a nonhierarchical manner and form a new whole and that taps into the subconscious. No performance of käfig is ever the same and collaboration is key.
