Tuva Hildebrand is currently invested in making performance works that questions power, gender constructions, and humans relationship to intimacy. How language is being used to reproduce oppressive power relations and our relationship to form and matter, representation and content. How to relate to the world non-violently through practicing repatterning our ways of perceiving. Through her background in theater she is using tools as representation and spectacle, but also minimalism, deconstruction and durational repetition. Movement, text, improvisational scores and sound recordings. As a part of her research and performative practice she is investigating how somatic practices and improvisation can desexualize and create bodily agency, autonomy and space for the queer body to exist; the body which cannot be defined in normative language.
During the last two years Tuva has been enrolled in an MFA program in which she has been investigating how to apply the ethics, methods and principles from her somatically informed practice onto her performance making process, both within the process of making the work and the shared process for an audience.
