SEPTEMBER 2014:
I started: “I still live in Water”, collaborating with
my husband Johan Haugen, artist. It will be a suite of photos, film, soundpieces, and live performance.
It has started out as a intuitive project and develops from there with the intention to work with creating in the creation and creating together with creation.

I will perform a walk with a waterglass on my head, here is a link www.vimeo.com/108785323 to the first testfilm, filmed on the beach in my hometown Malmö, Sweden, in the background, Turning Torso (by Calavatra).
My plan is to perform this walk in different places, in different countries, and in different seasons and weather conditions. I also plan to do an invitation to people to walk with me and carry water.

Remember, we are all water in the same ocean. Yoko Ono, Facebook 23 mars 2014.

Here follows some more photos from the first sessions.

SEPTEMBER: Continuing to work with WATER IS INSTINCT, an art idea in water; together with
the performance artist Joakim Stampe, Live Action, Gothenburg.
We got lucky, Moderna Museet, Malmö is now an artistic partner. We keep on working for our growing vision with Malmö as a base and more partners! Our bodies are 70% water, water communicates and water is the main issue for our coming life on earth.

27th of november I participated in the really intresting Relay Interview, Performanceworkshop with the canadian writer and performanceartist;
Jacob Wren
www.relayradicalcut.blogspot.se

The workshop focused on participating audience in art/performance.
The over all theme and headline that Jacob Wren have been working with this workshop was “Neutrality and Hospitality”. It was created with great simplicity, two chairs stood in front of a group of chairs. One person got up, sat on one chair, and another one got up and sat down in the other chair opposite. The second person coming up asked the first person a question. The first person chose if it wanted to answer the question. After the answer the first person went back and next person came up and asked a question to the person who asked the first question. So this long line of question became a really intresting and flowing fragmented story and created a strong presence. We did a round freely first, and then in a certain theme.

On the workshop participating was for example also the musician Sofia Härdig, the director Helena Röhr and some students at the Teaterhögskolan. Thank you all of you who was there!

October

Jag var en tre initiativtagare till Poesifestivalen i Härnösand som startade 1999, och har genom åren medverkat som projektledare, konfrencier, röstperformer, sångerska och som ledare för workshops i röst för poeter.
Numera heter festivalen Poesifestivalen i Västernorrland och omfattar en större geografisk spridning än för 15 år sedan och det varar en vecka!

6/10 14-15 Välkomna till Källan en interaktiv performance av Felicia Konrad! 

Källan1Inledning av 15-års jubileet av Poesifestivalen i Västernorrland

Instruktioner till deltagare i den interaktiva performancen Källan
Tid: 14.00-15-00 Plats: Foajén Länsmuseet Västernorrland, Murberget.

Välkommen till Källan, en interaktiv performance där du deltar med risk för att bli lite blöt!

I performance verket Källan skapar vi poesi och inspiration till poesi genom att leka en lek där vi talar och låter i vatten, med vatten och till vatten. Vi människor består ju själva av 70 % vatten och därför riktar sig verket både till inre och yttre källor! Kanske är vattnet i källan vatten som dinosaurierna har druckit av.

Instruktioner
1. Ta av dig skorna och ytterkläder om du vill sätta dig ner på de vita lakanen.

2. Undvik att skvätta ner andra människor som deltar i verket.

3. Vill du ha nytt vatten för att du druckit upp vattnet du har kommunicerat med, fyll på i tillbringarna. Vill du tömma ut en balja med vatten, använd toaletten när du häller ut vattnet, och fyll sedan på ur tillbringarna.

4. När du är färdigt, ställ ev. vattenglas på avsedd plats för disk.
