Studiekretz #4: Tja chat, tjena chien, (Marcus Doverud & Liv Strand)



Tja chat, tjena chien, concerning mimetic displacement departs from mime as a concept and a form of delivery. How something can be brought to experience and understood coexists with what it is to expose something through embodying it. Giving it another body. Basic to mime is that another body, the imitating one, show a facet of what is mimed. The displacement that mime brings about has to do with embodiment and understanding. In Tja chat, tjena chien, concerning mimetic displacement imitation also operates via stories we tell.


Studiekretz is an informal program series that is proposed as an experiment by during 2017. It departs from the concept of study circles and aims to provide and employ a space for alternative knowledge production, mutual learning processes and non-hierarchical social commons, to make further room for participants

to reprocess, articulate and alter critical thinking within a discursive environment.

Marcus Doverud & Liv Strand has collaborated since seven great years.


Marcus Doverud is working as a dancer, choreographer and teacher. He graduated from the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts and studied aesthetics and philosophy at Södertörn University College. His work moves between different stages dealing with bodily, spatial and sonic utterances and their interrelations. The performance 'renaissance prenaissance' (2015) revolved around sampling and choreographic staging of music. In 2016 the dance piece 'cool cool uncool and loving warm' was made together with dancer Emma Daniel (FR).


Art for Liv Strand is a practice for physical materials to think along the unfolding of understanding. Understanding as explaining relations, and language. Processes and performances contiguous to matter, forming subjective suggestions as sculptures and installations. Collaborations function as capacities for negotiation, concerning ways of doing together, and the topology of hierarchies. She has exhibited at Kunsthal Nikolaj, Copenhagen, Haus am Waldsee, Berlin, and Verkstad konstall, Norrköping. is a non-profit independent site for development and exchange of interdisciplinary choreographies, located in Stockholm. provides residencies and the practical conditions for organizations and individuals to reprocess, articulate and alter their artistic practices within a discursive environment. initiates and manages comprehensive artistic research projects which critically address social and political discourses, such as current projects KROPPSFUNKTION and (im)perfect choreographies.
