◊ MPA-B 2014 | MAY 14 ROUND-UP ◊



We are very happy to be hosting at the HUB six artists and researchers from a range of fields with different approaches to use of autobiographical materials in performance. What happens in the process of sharing personal stories? What is the driving force for doing this? THE MIRROR AND ITS REFLECTIONS presents the artists, Boris Azemar (FR), Daina Dieva Pupkevičiūtė (LT), Anne-Liis Kogan (EE/NO), Per Roar (NO), Demi Nandhra (UK) and Myna Trustram (UK)

The session is divided into three parts

We kick off at 11:00-14:00 with “WHO HOLDS UP THE MIRROR FOR WHOM?” Curator Camilla Graff Junior aka Mona Motel invites the artist to her couch. The dialogue will revolve around each individual performance practice and the various thematic overlaps between the artist’s work: memory, loss and the construct of identity. Parallel to the dialog on the couch will be delicious crêpes by Nini & Marcello.

From 15:00- 17:00 Luisa Greenfield will host a discussion featuring the artists and the collaborators on the Artistic Research team: Nathalie Fari, Joel Verwimp, Teena Lange and Ilya Noé. The discussion will be on the role of the “mirror” and how a shift in perception, both on the side of the audience and the artist, can be measured.

From 19:00-23:00. The third part of the program will be a presentation of selected works of the invited artists. And to accompany the evening will be Dinner by the fabulous NowHere Kitchen!!!
