While the page is inhabited by different foldable objects and subjects, they struggle with the concept of definition and glitch from frame to frame. In this way they find themselves sliding back and forth from a theatrical space into a cage, onto a desktop and back into the comic. The fear of invisibility in our digitized wo...

In Performance: Alessandro Sciarroni’s Don’t be frightened of turning the page (Santarcangelo Festival)

Alessandro Sciarroni Don’t be frightened of turning the page July 6-8, 2018 In “Don’t be frightened of turning the page,” Alessandro Sciarroni performs a solo rendition of the endurance and repetition strategies that characterize his work. The piece begins as fluorescent fixtures switch on in series with an ominous electric thump and crackle. Sited in a high school gym for the version we saw, spectators sit on gym mats around the central court markings; the lines quickly become recontextualized into boundaries for the extreme sport and play that Sciarroni offers. Sciaronni enters, marks the diagonals like a gymnast starting a floor routine, but the gesture quickly turns into a different pattern: an accelerating ramp up to the main choreography. While the central concept o...

In Performance: Dana Michel, Mercurial George (Out There Festival)

Mercurial George Dana Michel January 11-13, 2018 Walker Art Center Dana Michel’s solo work Mercurial George is a follow-up to her 2013 work The Yellow Towel, exploring similar themes of identity, but focused in to excavate each idea further down toward its root. Discarded objects litter the stage and serve as a playground for discovery and interaction. Michel’s childlike wonder and curiosity make these mundane objects–a coffee pot, a fabric bag, a spatula– seem new as she explores all the ways they can be used. “I’m quite addicted to evolving and to learning,” Michel said in 2017 interview. “And I think the best way to do that is by getting into trouble.” The trouble she gets into here is the bold definition and redefinition of herself by means of exploring her surroundings. He...

In Performance: Dancers @ Banhoff Zoo (Berlin, Germany)

X-Choreografen 22. + 23. + 24., August 2012, 19:00 – 23:00 h Treffpunkt: Maison de France, Kurfürstendamm 211, 10719 Berlin Berlin is changing. (insert cry of distress) With construction fences cropping up around the last bombed-out lots, hordes of EasyJetsetters crowding the streets, and GEMA fees threatening to flush out our favourite off-the-grid hangouts, the city’s rough and sexy reputation is dangerously on the line. Everybody. Panic. Now. Now stop panicking. Berlin knows change, and, chances are, it’ll take it in stride just as it has for the last, oh, century or so. Prime example is the district around Bahnhof Zoo. From bad boy Kiez of Christiane F. fame to posh shopping district to construction site, the area around Ku’damm is no stranger to change. This yearR...

The performance will take place on the 3rd floor of the building where Ian Tras...

In Performance: Gisèle Vienne’s Kindertotenlieder (France)

KTL Video NSFW “Poetry leads to the same space as all forms of eroticism, to the blending and fusion of separate objects. It leads us to eternity, it leads us to death, and through death to continuity…“ Georges Bataille “Eroticism“ “Jonathan: The idea of raping and killing you just triggered off its million billionth hard on, but this one is God‘s. That‘s my gift to you. Ghost: I‘m boring. You‘re boring. Sex is boring. Being tortured is boring. Being killed is boring.” Welcome to the nightmare factory of French theatre maker, performance and doll artist Gisèle Vienne! In “Kindertotenlieder”, a hyper-aestheticised performance-installation of a winter landscape, constructed from fantasies, obsessions and fears, she takes us on a journey into an emotional maze blurring the b...

Member Spotlight: Bruno Listopad | DISJOINTEDARTS (Rotterdam, Netherlands)

My works also stand for the art of the encounter and the exploration of new artistic potential beyond the predictable and imaginable. These operate through devised performance that is mostly interpersonal, relational and process driven. The objectives regarding content and final form are often developed through dialogue and collective reflection throughout the creative process. These are created through associative thinking, in which intuitive insight is accompanied together with analyses. Through these works, I aspire to achieve a whole composed of difference and paradox.
