37 (excerpt)

I am happy to invite you to a showing of an excerpt of my work "37" at Tanzfestival Rhein-Main in the frame of "Choreographische Werkstatt":

37 is a solo which deals with the relation between the concrete space and the concrete body, between watching and being watched and the always-already absent present. It takes place in the left-overs of the performance before which stays present in the traces of the past and as an imagination of some thing which is still to come. The grey in the space takes over, everything is in between. The spectator experiences 37 minutes of form and movement in different scales and distances and a dance which leaves behind the blurred outlines of what is not present.

Aus dem Innenleben eines Staubsaugerbeutels

Dust everywhere. In the cracks of computer keyboards, on the leaves of our houseplants, in the fabric of your finest dress. No matter how often we remove it, it returns and reminds us how all living things turn into dust.
äöü takes a close look at this dirty, grey and tiny archive of our everyday life and transfers it into the vacuum cleaner bag "Black Box". They present a piece about nothing less than the great questions of form and content, life and death, magic and labour.

Autumn School: Imagination, Institutions, Precarity

2nd of December till 6th of December 2019
ATW, Justus-Liebig University Giessen
@ the Georg Büchner Saal, Bismarkstr. 37, 35390 Gießen

Autumn school is part of the research network on the future of imaginary institutions, which was established by several partners (EEPAP, Lublin, Nomad Dance Academy Ljubljana, Institute for Applied Theatre Studies, Justus Liebig University, Giessen, BADCo, Zagreb, CollectivA, Cluj, Lokomotiva Skopje) and is supported by the Allianz Stiftung.

We are inviting young artists, students, professionals, writers and thinkers to engage together in the imagining of the alternatives of working and being together, reacting to the populist and nationalist wave in Europe. We would like to examine new institutionalization, practices and modes of producing, especially related to the work of the young artists, who are working in the increasingly but also precarious international field and at the same time fighting for the right to work and remain in their local surrounding, fighting nationalism and populist pressure. We will exchange and share models and practices, current and historical one, which insist on the creation of experiments, feminist, radical and progressive practices, which insists on equality, solidarity and work against the populist political imagination.
The school is developed as a platform, where young artists and students, who are at the end of their studies or just finished, can meet other cultural workers and thinkers, who have a strong political and social agenda. How to discuss about the political and cultural needs together, how to practice solidarity, support and inclusion? How to think about the internationalization in the time, which is marked by a flow of commodities and neo-liberal globalization? What does it mean to work and study internationally in the time of the art market and its accelerated modes of evaluation? Can we develop new temporal modes of working and thinking and how can we learn from each other?

Participants: The participants will be, among others, Dragana Alfirević, Miki Braniste, Ana Dubljević, Ida Daniel, Valeria Graziano, Viktorija Ilioska, Goran Injac, Katarzyna Kania, Marta Keil, Joanna Krakowska, Romuald Krężel, Bojana Kunst, Livia Piazza, Iulia Popovici, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Tanja Šljivar, Solidarity for Theatre, Swoosh Lieu, Biljana Tanurovska-Kjulavkovski, Zrinka Užbinec, Rok Vevar, Ana Vujanović.

Please note that some seminars and discussions are public and others are closed. Check our timetable for further information.

Ave Maria

der grosse tyrann (the great tyrant) is a feminist performance collective made up of Liliane Koch and Maude Hélène Vuilleumier that deals with feminine self-staging and self-presentation in a humorous way. In AVE MARIA, der grosse tyrann goes out in search for the most holy of feminine idols, the most portrayed woman in the world: Maria. They begin to investigate their own behavioural patterns. 

Hail Mary, full of grace, blessed are you among women. You are written into me, a Western-Christian influenced woman. You are the idol that I never wanted, the mother, that I never asked for. You gave me my endless empathy, my acquiescence and the beguiling smile with my head tilted at an angle. But have you ever laughed properly? And what will we find, when we look under your royal blue skirt? Holy Mary, pray for us sinners who love to sin. Now and in the hour of our death. Amen.

Being With Sound Through The Tension Of Desire

How does decolonizing the personal and collective intimacy sound like?

Touching – an act of transmission – has become somewhat desensitized, associated with boundaries and relegated to the negative. Being With Sound Through The Tension Of Desire is a work that attempts to reappropriate touch and to celebrate inter-dependency, vulnerability, closeness, disorientation, and trust, as forms of collective decolonial resistance.

Two bodies will compose, perform and deconstruct sound through the use of touch as a primary compositional element, asking itself in the process - how touch can be decolonized and reclaimed as a form of care, connection and transmission, a positive reinforcement, a constructive act that surpasses the purely physical spheres, an act which in such a context is undeniably political.

Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing - A Song For Dislocated Diasporic Bodies

The work "Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing" celebrates inter-dependency, vulnerability, closeness, disorientation, and trust, as forms of collective decolonial resistance.

A quiet coup attempting to displace the structural imbalances, to disorientate geographies, and to find space for silenced narratives. An (auto)reflexive re-evaluation of the unquestionable hierarchy of values imposed unto Us, a living work which attempts to embody extantation – to persist on existing despite conditions that favour its imminent extinction. In this work, the performers attempt to create another reality - through touching, proximity, and movements, that is not pre-choreographed but created in the moment by the circumstances within the process of creating the sound and by the movements of the performers+audience becoming a collective body - a space of disassociation unloaded with the social constructs associated with the politics of touch found in the modern world and the geography associated with it. Where to choreograph, compose and perform in this case, goes beyond the narrow confines of artistic concepts and aesthetics, existing in both the space of the ethereal and the space of an immersive installative performance. To process feelings, thoughts and intentions on the peripheral spectrum between the knowing and the unknowing, Nguyễn + Transitory hope to be one of the few ways left to reconnect with lost magic.

Clap Hands! – how to disappear completely

I will break it down with an example. Your phone rings in the middle of the night and a machine made voice is saying: I’m gonna kill you in less than 5 minutes with a gun!
Which one is more important for you: staying alive or understanding who’s voice it is?
„Clap Hands! – how to disappear completely“ is a theatre machine which is developed and organized to become an artist itself and make theatre without demand. It will transform electric intensity into an artistic approach.
Duration: ca. 40 minutes

Correspondence #1 on the importance of time and place, the territory

A lecture-performance fruit of the collaboration between Li Lorian (Jerusalem) and Marc Villanueva Mir (Barcelona). What starts as a lecture on spatial conceptualization of utopian and dystopian thinking, transforms into a travel through personal archives, political statements, accents, screenshots, bookmarks, subtitles and voice-overs. Correspondence #1 aims to draw a visual and conceptual journey between Jerusalem, Barcelona and Gießen; a collage of memories, observations and representations of the multiple and complex realities we inhabit and that at the same time inhabit us.

The project Dansöz aims to locate ‘oriental dance(s)’ as a serious dance genre in the Western European art landscape and to develop an artistic positioning to it. The ‘belly dance’ is its central motif, including, among other things, the orientalist, eroticized and exoticized image of women and its detoxification from a feminist perspective. The aim is to create a space and a language of self-empowerment based on the ‘belly dance’ style and to bring it to the agenda of the dance scene as a ‘serious’ and/or ‘artistic’ and emancipated dance genre.
