♦ MPA-B PROGRAMME: May 18th ♦

Good Morning! On the MPA-B programme for today we have:

From 15:00 to 17:00 at Alexanderplatz you will find Hector Canonge performing SUD.AKA a public durational performance which explores the attitudes, ideas and treatment of immigrants in major urban centers. From “sudaca,” a made-up word used to insult South American immigrants in Spain, Hector appropriates and transforms it into SUD (South) and AKA (Also Known As) to resist and call attention to stereotypes.

From 16:00 to 18:00, from the seers +|+|+ curated by Stephanie Hanna you can see at donauXganghofer in Neukoelln, a project called RESEARCH FOR EXTENDING RECIPROCITY with Shannon Cooney who will examine empathetic responses when one spectator witnesses another, in close contact with the performer, who will rock, embrace or sway them in the rhythm of the craniosacral system (a vital system in the body with a slow rhythmical impulse and low resonance).

From 17:00 to 18:00 make your way to Tempelhofer Feld at the Oderstrasse Field’s Community Gardens. Shelley Etkin presents a research-in-performance happening, calling for body and voice to explore questions of WHO(se)? This project is inspired by the vast wilderness & liveliness of Tempelhofer Feld. It offers an opportunity to embrace and creatively perform the ever-shifting collective ownership and blurred territoriality of this space. WHO(se)? includes a PICNIC POTLUCK. If you can, please bring a dish to share.

From 17:00 to 19:00 you can see another project from the series EROGATE/SURROGATE curated by Ilya Noe, at Grimmuseum. Titled LIE-IN (LION) this is a performance, which explores the ways in which humans are informed by and might internalize the lives of nonhuman animal others. It is an exercise in interspecies epistemology, focusing on the role of empathic observation and attentiveness in the construction of knowledge.

Starting at 20:00 the Kreuzberg Pavillon crew brings to his new space in Naunynstrasse, an experimental groupshow titled LOVE BAZON HATE BROCK with completely naked walls, no work by the artists finds a steady place or is mounted on the wall. Visitors can
carry and exchange the move-or wearable works of the show. The catalogue is a unique piece and registers the
selected works of the evening.
