The text of new skin is grafted onto theoretical works of a.o. Ursula Le Guin, Anna Tsing and Donna Harraway. The publication makes this hybrid network of companion authors visible. The publication contains an additional photo-essay by artist Dries Segers. The many voices in Levitations are not shown as characters in a theatre play, but as different tones in a musical score.
new skin (2018) and Levitations (2017) are two solo-performances by and with Hannah De Meyer. Her work includes performances, publications and happenings, in which sci-fi imagination, ecology, archaeology and mutating bodies take a central role. Levitations is an enchanting trip along the peaks and valleys of De Meyer’s imagination. new skin is a hypnotic descent into the earth in which dead bodies and forgotten critters are shaken back to life.
