Marie Gavois is a stage artist, based in Dortmund and Stockholm. Her artistry materializes issues of economic power and social policy in forms of performing arts, text, music /sound and film. Poetic politics, organization and independence interests her. Focus is on performance, in which she skillfully integrates music and noi- se dance as well as literary formations. Her work is many times minimalist and reduced to the essentials. With the help of sound, language, light and movement in space as well as the presence of her own person, she creates scenes of a uni- que artistic expression.

She’s a member of the sound art and noise duo Sisterloops.

2015-2018 Gavois was the president of Fylkingen – new music and intermedia art in Stockholm. Fylkingen serves both as the base to develop her own work as well as her role as an organizer. She initiated a new monthly magazine, FYLKINGEN #TONGUES 2017.

2008-2012 she was an apprentice in SU-EN Butoh Company participating as a dancer and performer in many projects and exhibitions. During the four years she was as well part of the team of Frictions – international performance art festival. 2012, she interrupted the apprenticeship, to continue working independently as an artist and performer (disconnected to the Butoh training, left is its memory..). Earlier she studied sculpture at Gothenburg school of art.

Мари Гавуа – художница, работающая в области перформанса и мультидисциплинарных искусств. Живет в Стокгольме, Швеция. Ее творчество материализует вопросы экономической власти и социальной политики через формы исполнительского искусства, танца, музыки / звука и литературы. Её интересуют вопросы поэтизированной политики, труда, и независимости. Ее собственные работы часто минималистичны и сводятся к основному. В последнее время она также работает в паре с другими художниками. Занималась скульптурой и буто.

С 2013 года Гавуа является президентом Fylkingen. Fylkingen является её базой для собственного творчества и для организации проектов. Весной 2017 года она инициировала новый журнал, FYLKINGEN #TONGUES_.
