Schubert vs The Muse

Artists each have their own special relationship to their muse - the magic, mysterious, unpredictable force that inspires them to create their work. And while each relationship is unique, all artists go through similar processes with their muse: at the start, a beautiful dream or idea, something vague and interesting - ‘inspiration’ perhaps. Then follows the hard work; which can be draining and frustrating or exciting and challenging. Artists sometimes quit here, but if they continue, they eventually reach completion - a measured, well-rehearsed calmness where everything seems to fall into place. This short film is intended to represent that process. Whether you are creating or learning or rehearsing, you are not alone in this process, and it’s never wasted effort. Trust the process, and most importantly: enjoy the process, because the truth of any work is not the end product but the work that it took to create it.

The project is a collaboration between Bim and We:R Performance Collective. The choreography was created and intensively rehearsed in five days at Tegelscenen in Stockholm, and filmed at Danscentrum, Stockholm.

Ode to my Bitchface (dance)

"Resting Bitchface, they call you. But there is nothing 'restful' about you..."

 'Ode to my Bitchface' is a dance film made in reaction to the amazing fierceness of Olivia Gatwood's poem of the same name. Beautifully delivered by Olivia in a live performance, we felt like we had to dance the chills out of our bodies as soon as we saw her original video. 


Produced and directed by We:R Performance Collective

Shot & edited by our wonderful friend and collaborator Tim Davis 

Poem written and read by Olivia Gatwood (oliviagatwood.com)

Choreography & performance: Rebecca Björling & Rebecca Rosier

"The raven himself is hoarse
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty! make thick my blood;
Stop up the access and passage to remorse,
That no compunctious visitings of nature
Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between
The effect and it! Come to my woman's breasts,
And take my milk for gall, you murdering ministers,
Wherever in your sightless substances
You wait on nature's mischief! Come, thick night,
And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark,
To cry 'Hold, hold!' "
