The Nielsson Conversations I/II is a series that will attempt to implement and create theory about collaboration. With the fictive character J. Nielsson for a guide, artists are invited to investigate their own narratives, and to create new ones, as well as to examine the space where that overlaps. One of Nielsson’s first tenants is that “space” holds the key to our human design. Through dance, tension, and close documentation, the Nielsson Conversations aim to create installations and performances that know themselves, and that take their places among a network of always more complicated narrative. see here: www.vimeo.com/nielssonc


all parts hosted by:
Joseph Hernandez, current dancer with the Semperoper Ballett, created his first piece (We, Tender) for the Royal Ballet of Flander’s “Coupe Maison” series in 2012. He went on to create two works for Les Ballets De Monte Carlo; Sawdust and Rust (2013), and Persistent Sequence (2014). He founded the Nielsson Collective with installation artists Yannick Cosso and Jordan Pallages in 2012, focusing their work on the research of narrative and collaboration, and the place these concepts have in contemporary art.

Nielsson Conversations III / Hey! So! -

25.10.2015 - 25.10.2015

The Nielsson Company (with special guest, Evan Hughes) would like to invite you to witness PERFORMANCE! Two highly trained individuals will come together to discuss and entertain! There are many possibly ways for this to go, and they will probably devolve one way or another. The two performers plan to filter through the many possibilities to deliver something of QUALITY and VALUE, or something equally verbose. FILTER!


“Can you remember the last time you thought to yourself, “this is a good use of my time”? Can you remember what motivates you? I’m sorry sir, but you’re going to have to go away and start again from the back of the line. This is for serious entries only”


Participating artists: Evan Hughes
Sunday, October 25th, performance starts at 8pm

The Nielsson collective invites you to experience a performance about memory and rhythm. There will not be a test, but there will be libations, and a limited amount of skin shown. A situation performed by Joseph Hernandez (USA/D), Jordan Pallages and Yannick Cosso from Nice (FR)


“I dug up half the desert, I raided my mother’s diary, we stole from indigenous people, and we bought and sold more delicate things than I am able to imagine. We have all of this information now. We must finish the library”

«Have you ever seen cellars, basements, caves, guts of earth and rocks as warm and welcoming? Here we live in the womb of Mother Earth, we are not in these few pale depths of hell. « (J.Nielsson, from Les Ermites de Cappadoce, 2011)


Nielsson Part 1/ Conversation research

Nielsson Part 2/ Panic, A Spectator Sport


Panic is a performance piece that attempts to ask questions about panic in real time, or to generate situations where real panic is experienced and then dealt with. There is usually a welcome amount of singing because, as one could imagine, the proceedings can take a turn. “oh boy. Yeah, here we go. c’mon. Yeah, thats the stuff. It’s going to happen. There’s only a couple more things to sort out. Oh Boy. Yup. That’s what it’s going to be. This is the one. Oh. That’s probably going to leave a mark in something. C’mon. Wow. Things are really happening. This is really going to be the thing that it is. This is going to happen. Can you see any of it? I feel like you’re stepping on my shoulders. Why do you think all of this is important to any of us. This is a freeze frame, a proper, one-to-one, freeze frame. Everything that is worth looking at is in that direction. Have you ever considered that as a possibility?


The Nielsson Collective would like you to help them research panic, in one way or another.


Nielson Part 3 / Derelict Femme, A study


“The woman with very different kinds of places. She uses matches and her right leg crosses over her left in a way that acknowledges the fact that there is more and more wear in her sheer black tights.”
A performance piece from Joseph Hernandez and Caroline Beach about the character “Maya Pearlman” from the Nielsson Collective. The piece is an introduction to her perspective and and introduction to the rest of her work with the collective





Nielson Part 4 / A live collection of fictions


“The misplaced theoretical detail has a different kind of pang than the misplaced stitch does.” (Cristin D’or) The Nielsson narrative is as active as it is mercurial. Original Documents from the first few years of research as well as dated data entries from members of the collective are things that some of these objects are akin to. There are also snacks.
