The intuitive art project I still live in water, Felicia Konrad voice performer and performance artist and Johan Haugen artist, Malmö, Sweden present “To carry water. To carry 5890 litres one day”, a site specific piece for the Dome of Visions in Copenhagen.
The piece and the film is made possible by support by Malmö City Cultural Support and Dome of Visions. The piece will be recycled!

5890 litres is an average swedish person’s daily water footprint according to WWF. The performance is playing with and reflecting on our unawareness around how much water we use daily in our modern societies, and were we take the water, and the fact that we in a way have lost control. It is is not any longer possible for
one single human living in a modern society to manage to carry the weight and perform the physical work that is necessary to provide the water used daily. And also that we are unaware of the water in our own bodies, we consist of 70 % water, water that maybe the dinosaurs has been drinking of. What we do to water we do to ourselves.

The piece is also in the same time a tribute to all people carrying water on daily bases, and to the water itself and to the big natural cycle!
