Everything Remains

by Juli Apponen & Jon R. Skulberg

Presented by Supercell: Festival of Contemporary Dance Brisbane in association with Brisbane Powerhouse

Everything Remains is choreography for a tired body.

A minimal and poetic encounter, an autobiography of physical transformations of sex and gender, pain and limitations. Juli Apponen is a ready made, with her archive of memories. All material derives directly from concrete experiences such as: surgeries, chronic pain and the physical body as editable material.

A reflection on weakness, Everything Remains investigates the potential of the body in fatigue and constraint. What do we do when these conditions dominate? Is a tired body a more interesting body?

Supercell is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and by Brisbane City Council, Brisbane Powerhouse and The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.


In an elegant space Apponen moves around fully exposed and creates with her presumably weakened, but enormously interesting and beautiful body, a series of stunning compositions and images that bear witness to a personal peripeteia beyond comprehension. ★★★★★

When the surface diminishes, and white becomes black, Atalante (the venue) vibrates in pulsating pain. Everything Remains touches beneath the skin.

The work portrays a kind of point zero, from where an individuals self image and existence step by step is constructed in an changing and unforeseen process.
