The new choreographers program PREMIERE 2016 presents Joanna Kalm`s and Sylvia Köster`s debut performances.
This performance asks: “How would I like to present myself as an artist? What if I will not be capable of verbally communicate the meaning of my creation? How to market and interpret art that is based on wordless intuition?”
Joanna Kalm is this performance.
This performance relates to the following concepts: artist as a product and art as a product, and asks: “Which of those two should gain more attention?”
This performance relates to essive and translative cases and declinable words such as sieves and travelstain.
This performance is yearning for move further than presentation, definition and cultivated image.
This performance is this performance.

Joanna Kalm is an artist, whose activities and interests include choreography, photography and blogging. She has graduated from the Tallinn University with a BA in Choreography and from the London Contemporary Dance School, with a PG diploma. Joanna sees herself as a shy expressionist who likes to disturb and disrupt the habitual flow of life with absurdity and juxtaposition. She enjoys finding artistic potential and value from unexpected sources, be it her grandmother’s wardrobe, someone’s ‘too’ energetic personality, or trash on sidewalks. As for now, she is drawn to live art in public spaces and creating new environments for self-expression.
It all begins in a cosmic, dark cloud made of gas and dust. At the core of the cloud a star is born – out of gravitational instability and heavy contractions. Temperature is rising, brightness is sharpening, rotational speed is growing. Thermonuclear reactions are initiated at the centre of the cloud. Desire takes fire. Hydrogen – burning, Helium – burning, light-weight atomic nuclei joining together and forming heavy nuclei. Desire grows. Burning, burning, burning. The star is shining until it has fuel, inner burning to run on. It mutates into a red mega-oversized star. Synthesis is ongoing until the star is not able to balance its weight anymore. It collapses and explodes. A supernova. Remaining stardust vanishes into the space and so only a black hole stays. – Thank you for desiring more. Thank you for living life to the fullest. Thank you for enabling me to bring you more splendour, more glitter, more beauty, and even more desire. Thank you for paying attention to me.
Sylvia Köster studies choreography at the Viljandi Culture Academy (University of Tartu), department of Performing Arts; she has also studied at the Palucca University of Dance in Dresden and at the Stockholm Theatre and Film School (StDH). Sylvia spends her time with pondering on common ground of and pushing the borders between and beyond dance, theatre, body mime and film. She is fully aware about Thales’ mishap (he fell into well) and tries to watch her steps and notice life around her while observing stars.
