Delta – an Ocean Call

Delta – an Ocean Call, is a publication by PAM and Pontus Pettersson/MOPA Production for anyone curious of, or passionate about choreographic and performative inquiries. This first edition of Delta Publication is devoted to water histories, narratives and practices.

Water both divides and merges, varies and manifests in different shapes and structures, creating different relationships with its surroundings. As a transformative material, could one say that water has a different kind of logic, another kind of dance? In this publication, contributors Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris, Paul Maheke, Axel Andersson, Sindri Runudde, Vibeke Hermanrud, Elly Vadseth, Daniela Bershan, Sabrina Seifried, D.N.A. (Dina El Kaisy Friemuth, Neda Sanai and Anita Beikpour), Every Ocean Hughes, Adham Hafez, Pontus Pettersson, and Alice MacKenzie share their multi-layered practices, writings, memories and scores on water. Inviting you to submerge!

Price: 25 EUR (including international shipping) or 200 SEK (including shipping within Sweden).
