Blithe Spirits

Liina Magnea & Sabina Maria van der Linden

Sabina Maria van der Linden

My time-related work is driven by systems. Improvisation-, conversation-, choreography-systems. A system as an idea to avoid ideas – a few rules replacing a scenario. Exploring the relationship between working with them and the contents that oozes out – whether desired or not. Getting rid of the problem of illusionism, ... which is riddance of one of the most salient and objectionable relics of European art. (Donald Judd).

Liina Magnea

In the golden age of interdiscplinarity, Liina Magnea works in performance, as a musician and as a film dramaturge.

In her own works, she combines these fields and pursues the new form that goes beyond all other forms and can reach the deepest sentiments inside us. She can usually be found somewhere shouting.
