performance - Season 14/15
In previous solo performances, choreographer Ula Sickle and sound artist Yann Leguay examined the interaction between movement, voice, sound and light. In Prelude, they work with Norwegian vocalist Stine Janvin Motland. With her use of extended vocal technique, Motland explores the limits of the human voice, entering into dialogue with the amplified elements present on stage. Has the body become an extension of technology?
‘If cure is a choice, why not make it while sitting in the theatre? Why waste any more time on wanting to be ‘cultural’ when we could spend it on being ‘healthier’? Ivo Dimchev is an exuberant and charismatic performer who constantly tests the limits, including the system to which he himself belongs. In I-Cure he promises to solve both your physical and psychological problems.
Pharmakon - The Estonian artist Maike Lond reports on her attempts to cooperate financially with the private sector. She tried in every way possible: with standard sponsor deals, as an employee, in public presentations, live debates on Estonian television etc. Her (rather romantic) goal was to become financially independent from curators and subsidising bodies.
The new project by Hans Petter Dahl and Anna Sophia Bonnema is a study of rhythm and expression, a journey in which a live drummer fires up three performers. A celebration of life results in an enumeration that cuts right through everything, in the realisation that we have to take our leave. We are living in a time when there is ‘an epidemic of things’.
The internet is a source of inspiration for Barbara Matijević & Giuseppe Chico. YouTube is the subject of their new performance. Camera in hand, the performer transforms the stage into an intimate room where he records his videos. A walk through the ethereal grandeur of the cosmos, in dressing gown and slippers.
