All That Remains is a choreographic work that blurs the boundaries of dance, installation art and sound. The performance opens up a contemplative space into an uncertain world on the verge of transformation, where hybrid sculptures of industrial waste are scattered throughout the space, like a poignant reminder of a wounded environment — how do we come together and heal in times of upheaval? How do we create new rituals, embrace our ghosts and monsters? How do we build sanctuaries in the wake of destruction? Moving from playfulness to resignation, from ecstasy to desolation, 'All That Remains' emerges as a mesmerizing journey through universes of transformation.
Mirko's distinctive choreographic lens, shaped by a diverse history of theaters, galleries, and public spaces, brings to the fore a dynamic engagement with today's anthropocentric existential dilemmas. Drawing from his dedication to exploring boundaries—of space, identity, and the intimate-political realm —the work urges audiences to confront, reflect, and reimagine. Mirko's oeuvre is both an emotional and intellectual journey, and with "All That Remains," it finds its poignant resonance. At its heart, this piece is a reflection on our wounded environment, our place within it, and our collective potential to heal, adapt, and transform.

"All That Remains" aims at fostering cultural exchanges and dialogue. Based in Denmark, we seek to tap into the universal sentiments of change and transformation that the performance captures. Targeting international festivals, artistic residencies, and theaters, especially in contexts that focus on societal and environmental shifts, our work speaks volumes about adaptation and resilience. Our goal is to collaborate with local artistic entities and people, enriching the performance's texture and expanding its cultural landscape. We aspire to connect with organizers, institutions, and audiences valuing contemporary art's potential to heal and inspire.

As a self-producing artist, sustainability is paramount. Internationally, our approach is twofold: ecological and socio-cultural. Ecologically, we prioritize digital over physical promotions and aim for minimal carbon footprints by bundling tours and optimizing logistics. An important characteristic of this production, is that most of the set materials are sculpture created from waste materials of industrial origin, belonging to recycling production cycles.
Smoke/haze and flashing lights will be used during the show
Mirko Guido is also committed to developing a working methodology that focuses on ethical collaboration and sustainable working processes. The working environment is organized as a co-emergent process in a shared spatial and temporal continuum - the dancers, the choreographer, the dramaturg, the composer, the lighting and set designer co-exist, each contributing to the dialogical process taking place within the shared space. The fundamental aim is to foster a generative and organic working environment, in which the specificities of roles are maintained, but freed from unhealthy and outdated hierarchical power pressures, favoring instead a sense of shared responsibility. This means making sure that everyone feels heard and valued and that we work in a mentally healthy and welcoming manner for all.

A captivating sculptural performance where bodies and objects made of waste-material co-exist and move as a united organism. This work shows a profound exploration and manifestation of slow living and healing. It is a part of the growing awareness that we need to change some things in order to regenerate earth and our being. Mirko Guido unfolds this in an intriguing, at the same time playful and stoic vision.
