Alright! The sun shines and the future of MPA-B looks bright. Here is today’s programme.
We were certainly missing this one: MPA-B’s very own TV CHANNEL. Thanks to Canadian artist Margaret Dragu our dreams have finally come true. Starting today and continuing up until May 26th (except on Mondays), Margaret will be hosting and streaming a daily morning show titled VERB WOMAN TV / VERB FRAU TV from 10:40-11:15am watchable here: http://verbwoman.wordpress.com. These morning shows will include plenty of revealing insights into the MPA-B programme, as well as interviews and contributions with the makers and shakers of MPA-B 2013. Tune in today and see Margaret’s opening livestream which will include an interview with performance artist and founder of Performer Stammtisch Jörn J. Burmester (aka der Performer mit dem Bart).
PS (if you miss the daily morning shows, don’t worry! We will be posting a recorded version on our website at: www.mpa-b.org/mpa-tv.html)
LATITUD 32ºN/55ºS curatorial project closes today with a conversation and exchange on contemporary performance art practices from Latin America (starting at 19:00 – free entrance) which will see the contribution from all its 12 participating artists: – Alejandra Herrera (CL) – Alexia Miranda (SV) – Ana Alenso (VE) – Diogobo (BR) – Elgalpon Espacio: Diana Daf Collazos and Jorge Baldeon (PE) – Ismael Ogando (DO) – Jesus Jimenez (MX) – Miguel Jara Yurazeck (CL) – Nancy Gewölb Mayanz (CL) – Niña Yhared (MX) – Sebastian Hau- Walker (MX/ GB).
Crossing Context, Neukölln curatorial project continues tonight from 19:30-21:00 (3€) at kunstraum t27 with Allio-Weber’s PRIM’HOLSTEIN + FIN DE L’ORIGINE DU MONDE, a project questioning the notion of performance as well as expectations, through the description of a performance imagined by the authors that never took place.
WerkStadt Kunst- & Kultur Verein tonight will host a performance by Bryndís Björnsdóttir (aka Dísa) titled ROCK YOUR BODY (20:00-20:50 / free entrance). The performance will attempt to decipher the ontological meaning behind the lyrics of rock songs. As a conductor the artist will ask the audience to be her instruments, forming a tune in their own head that grasps their take on rocking a body.
ACUD continues its evening multi-programming, giving us insights on a variety of takes on performance art making, and beyond. Tonight’s triple-bill includes: I AM NOT by Valentina Murabito in collaboration with Suzan Kizilirmak; THREAD by Manuela Macco and MILCH by Nausicᾶ – Despina Bibika, Iriana Ioannou, Dimitra Thomaidou. Performances will take place in both the venue’s theatre as well as its gallery space. Doors open at 20:00 with the last performance on at 22:00 (dayticket 8€/5€)
In the wide-world of MPA-B we couldn’t not have a radio pirate programme and….ghosts…and conspiracies. Cleverly A-CURATE #2 combines the three into a GHOST PIRATE RADIO CONSPIRACY SHOW with Nicolas Puyjalon and Leyla Peacock, broadcasting from 19:00-22:00. For frequencies please visit:https://www.facebook.com/events/318429591617828/ &http://wrangelkiez.org/2013/05/ghost-radio-show-conspiracy. Oh and don’t miss a DJ set by Weird Boobs (as one may have at times) which will follow the broadcast.
And finally, if you have missed last night’s KIM 2, a live trance jazz improvisation performance with and by Mike Hentz, you can catch him and his crew also tonight from 21:00 at Neukölln’s in-famous Peppi Guggenheim (free entrance) with KIM 3 presenting German cutting edge music and, as always, 100% improvised.
