Jette Loona Hermanis

Jette Loona Hermanis (1997), pulsing Baltic blood, is a performance artist, choreographer, and performer. After finishing her studies in Amsterdam School for New Dance Development (SNDO), she has since been based in Tallinn, Riga and Berlin. She received the Estonian Theatre Prize Dance Award 2022 with Johhan Rosenberg for their work Eden Detail. Her work often animates the body through a digital veil. The storytelling format she uses – entwining an electronic soundtrack with a body – depicts hyperreal situations to which she can surrender.  The piece revolves around the entity named Endling, a lonely creature who is essentially the last survivour of their species. They are a single living being whose death consequently means the extinction of the whole species. Endling expresses loneliness and yearns for another half, rendering surreal situations in an apocalyptic environment that delusionally would satisfy their longings.
