Precious Balance Walk by the intuitive art project I Still Live in Water; Felicia Konrad and Johan Haugen, was filmed 4 days in August 2019 between bridges 1 and 2. Six Nordic performance artists (Erik Högström, Lisa Nyberg, Joakim Stampe, Elena Lundquist Ortiz, Meri Nikula, and Ignacio Pérez Pérez) were invited to perform in and with water in Oresund, at Ribersborg’s beach, Malmö. The film is ca. 13 minuts long.
