Hevi Metle is an epic installation saga of six hours, six minutes and six seconds, focusing on a feminist approach to alchemy. It explores transformation, mysticism, resistance and retaliation through matter and form, working from solidity to fluidity. The piece includes an integrated touch tour and experimental visual description performed live by Juliana Capes.

Bodies shift slowly, metal sculptural elements change and accumulate in the space alongside encryption and dissolution of language through riddles, slowed down sung text and repetitive tritone chords from an electric guitar.

Performance schedule:

14.00-15.00: The devil’s chord
15.00-16.00: Twelve verses to make rot
16.00-16.30: Riddled beauty
