Amorphous Alloy 2.0

Amorphous Alloy 0.2

Amorphous alloys are metallic materials with a glass-like structure and astonishing properties. Used as biomaterial for implantation into bones, metallic glass dissolves gradually in organisms and is replaced with bone tissue … We explore possible meeting points between (female) body and machine, melting electronics, poetry, vocals, body/movement and spacial structures into a performative amorphous alloy.

performomat is a research machine producing instant performances in durational group setting.

performomat is testing new scores as well as new forms of collaboration and of meeting the audience.

involved are dance, music, sound, voice, visual arts, poetry.


concept/facilitation: anja weber

performance: janna anderson, annelie andre, maayan danoch, elena dragonetti, evan foster, dodi helschinger, sarah menger, maya raghavan, ingo reulecke, susanne soldan, karine thomas, anja weber



in this performomat we work with different shapes of echo e.g. delay.

we give in motifs of movement or poetry and heighten awareness of the motifs of the other performers. these motifs will be repeated in different delay time and varied in their inner dymamics also in excerpts of the original.
while working, on this we are constantly keeping the form of the piece in total in our attention and find a coherent structure of the whole.
out of these dynamic relations and connections evolves on another level a structure full of meaning.

performomat is a collaborative interdisciplinary instant performance machine, an ongoing open access research project, following a rhizomes logic of a group process

concept/facilitation: billie hanne

performance: janna anderson, evan foster, billie hanne, sarah menger, maya raghavan, ingo reulecke, anja weber, elena dragonetti, coline quintin, anni lattunen, maria rutanen


the performers, through handling the physical reality of the body and its surroundings, make dances that allow for a natural complexity of different elements and poetry to occur / take place. they dal with anatomy, physics, dimension, matter and scale fusing into a space both real and imagined.
the composition here unfolds / arises from having each of these elements be housed by what is being made as a whole.

17:00-20:00 laboratory session 
20:00 - showing

Billie Hanne is a dancer and a poet. She composes dance and poetry in instant choreographies, provocative poetics in the spur of the moment, in the realm of vision and instinct.

Through radical handling of poesy and dance she weaves nature’s sophistication into different textures, tales and geometrics that penetrate skill with grace and lyrical power with rhythm. She has been consistent in her work in this specific area.

In her practice she reimagines tradition and pushes the boundaries of the art form through blending and morphing myth and physical reality. Her pieces are spiritual architectures that layer dissonant forces. She brings her work to different venues from underground studios to established theatres, to galleries and industrial sites. She is currently on tour with her sixth solo piece Deep Brown Sea (2014-2016) which has been shown in London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Den Haag as well as in Greece as and Iceland. With her company Billie & Wheelgod she currently refines the latest piece ‘Melchior’ (2015-2016).
Since 2009 she has performed with Allen’s Line, the Julyen Hamilton Company. This includes the latest pieces ‘Goat Ocean’ (2014-2015) and ‘Mud Like Gold (2015-2016) which were shown in different places in Europe. 
She is a passionate teacher and able to transmit her wide experience effectively and with zest.

MACHINE//BODY Series, February 17th, doors at 20:00, show promptly at 20:30


Artist in residence, Muyassar Kurdi (NYC), curates this series which puts emphasis on sound and movement, space and architecture. It explores the co-existence of the two seemingly independent entities.


* Doron Sadja

* “amorphe legierung” trio by Jagna Anderson, Anja Weber, and Dodi Helschinger

* “Intersections and Variations” by Muyassar Kurdi


*Thanks for the support of Vorspiel 2017 (joint effort by transmediale and CTM)

I am happy to announce this upcoming performance by WAH

(Anja Weber - Jagna Anderson - Dodi Helschinger) in the frame of the body//machine series curated by Muyassar Kurdi during her residency at Liebig12 (thank you Muyassar for the invitation!). This is going to be an exciting evening with three acts by Doron Sadja, Muyassar Kurdi and our trio.

We are melting electronics, poetry, vocals, body/movement and spatial structures into a (performative) amorphous alloy. Amorphous alloys are metallic materials with a glass-like structure and astonishing properties, applicable for example as biomaterial for implantation into bones, which dissolves gradually in organisms and is replaced with bone tissue… a possible meeting point between body and machine. Come, come!

performomat 2// scent#2: where is my when


performomat is a research machine producing instant performances in durational group setting.
performomat is testing new scores as well as new forms of collaboration and of meeting the audience.
sessions are partially open to the audience

performance: anja weber, dodi helschinger, jagna anderson

the session explores body-mind states inspired by olfactory perception within the frame of a time-score. while playing with simultaneous or overlapping phrasing of sound, movement and stillness the performers examine the subtle reticulations of time and space, and question the possible role that the limbic and subcortical processing of sensory data may play in this process.

open for limited number of passive participants – if you are interested to witness the performance process, write us a short message –
– team (at) impro-per-arts.de

saturday, 13 august 2016
doors opens at 7pm
suggested donation 5€

performomat 1// silence#1: scent


concept/facilitation/direction: jagna anderson
performance: anja weber, anna weißenfels, delphine robet, dodi helschinger, maria ferrara, maya raghavan, naima ferré

silence scores are exploring spaces created by minimalist interactions in durational setting. they require a high bodily intensity to perform at low volume level. every score is addressing some realms of somatic or sensory experience. "Scent" gives special attention to the olfactory system in order to inform performative actions.

open for limited number of passive participants – if you are interested to witness the performance process, write us a message –

Monday July 18, 2016 10:30 am – 5 pm, EDEN Studios (incl.1h Lunch Break)

Melt?-swMELT – Improvisation Movement and Sound
The Melt Lab adresses professional dancers and musicians, who work interdisciplinary and are actively engaged in the collaborative possibilities of both art forms.
The Melt Practice Day/ Lab focuses on these interactive possibilities and aims to promote new collaborations and networking amongst artists of both disciplines.
Maximum number of participants: 10 dancers, 10 musicians
Participation: please send an application with a short CV or Weblink, along with a proposal for a score, task, or practice exercise to be explored with the group on the day of the Lab.
The proposed score or practice exercise should be adaptable for an open number of performers, between 4 and 20 and should be flexible in its duration (how long it takes to execute).
Depending on the size of the group, all or just some of the scores will be practiced.
Jenny Haack and Anja Weber are responsible for the overall structure of the day.
A studio performance open to the public is scheduled for 6pm.
Participants can choose to be part of it, to present work from the day.
Together with participants, Anja Weber and Jenny Haack will decide upon the order and structure of the performance.
We kindly ask artists working in both fields (dance and music) to apply for only one of the disciplines (musician or dancer). Thank you.

The focus of the research on this day explicitly looks at sound and movement.
Performing or working with words and spoken text is not foreseen.

Concept: Jenny Haack in cooperation with Anja Weber
Please email CVs and proposals to: mail@berlinartsunited.com
for professional musicians and dancers

As we have to cover studio costs: Participation Fee: EUR 15 
(depending the size of group EUR 10 might work out in the end)
Each participant will receive one free ticket for an evening performance of his/her choice during the Improvisation XChange Berlin festival July 15-24

The Melt – Lab is part of the Improvisation XChange Berlin programme 2016
